Students at 13 schools in Lakewood’s Clover Park School District will benefit from a $2.48 million grant from the Department of Defense. Grant funds will be used in two ways: to boost student achievement in science and math using technology and engineering, and to teach kids about community, personal responsibility and well-being.
Schools receiving grant money are:
• Beachwood, Carter Lake, Clarkmoor, Evergreen, Greenwood and Hillside elementary schools, all located on Joint Base Lewis-McChord
• Custer, Dower, Idlewild, Lake Louise, Oakbrook and Park Lodge elementary schools
• Harrison Preparatory School
To qualify for a grant, a school must have at least 15 percent of its students who come from military families.
