Learning Grant Given to Flippin Schools
February 2003

Dr. Robert Calvery, Flippin school superintendent, presented good news to the Flippin Board of Education at its recent meeting. Calvery informed board members the school has been awarded a 21st Century Community Learning Center Grant.

Calvery said the three-year grant is to develop after-school and summer programs for preschool through 12th grade. The grant also will provide for "academic assistance for those that need remediation due to low test scores." The assistance will be available in all curricula.

It also will provide for "cultural and physical activities and access to learning any of the arts."

The grant, with options to extend two more years, is $150,000 the first year, $120,000 the second year and $105,000 the third year.

"It is hard to get this grant," said Calvery, who attributed receiving the grant to Petra Pershall, Media Center director and federal grants coordinator, Dianna Cunningham, Consortium Program director; and members of the community, "especially Joe Livingston."

The board hired Cunningham as project coordinator, Calvery said.
