ATLANTA (November 30, 2017) | Sen. Greg Kirk (R – Americus) recently announced that the Crisp County School System (CCSS) is receiving a $671,895 Implementation Grant, titled Early SUCCESS: Strategies for Underserved Children, Community Engagement and Social-Emotional Support.
“I can’t think of another school system more deserving of this grant than Crisp County,” said Sen. Kirk. “The children in our communities deserve every opportunity to learn and grow through the trained guidance that this program will be able to provide. The Early SUCCESS program’s approach in making this a community-wide effort really shows how invested the program leaders are in creating and providing resources that will instill the value of education and community into these young children’s minds.”
Currently, 98 percent of students in the CCSS qualify for free and reduced-price lunch. The Early SUCCESS program will train teachers and other community childcare providers to bring literacy and social-emotional development resources to families in their communities. This program aims to positively impact its community in and outside of the classroom.
