I forgot yesterday to plug my colleague Kris Sherman’s story about two local school districts receiving a Department of Defense grant.

Clover Park and Bethel will receive $2.5 million through the Department of Defense Educational Activity program aimed at helping struggling kids do better in class. Clover Park, with about 4,000 military dependents, will receive a cool $2 mil of the dough. Bethel has about 1,450 children of military parents.
