Prior Lake-Savage Schools receives $350,000 grant 30 Aug 11

The Prior Lake-Savage Area School District has received a grant that will give it more money for specialized instructional services this year.

The district received a nearly $350,000 grant from the Minnesota Department of Education. The award is more than three times the amount the district received last year for Alternative Delivery of Specialized Instructional Services.

District officials say they will use the money to provide support to students who have behavioral or academic challenges but are not identified as special-education students.
