ACES Interdistrict Cooperative Grant Program: 2013-2015



The Connecticut State Department of Education awarded just over $500,000 to ACES (Area Cooperative Educational Services) to administer six Interdistrict Cooperative Grants for each of two school years (2013-2014 and 2014-2015).  These grants are designed to reduce racial and economic isolation, by bringing together students from various backgrounds and different districts.  In addition to celebrating and increasing students’ appreciation of diversity, this programming also focuses on strengthening academic achievement within welcoming, safe and interactive environments.  Families are invited to experience students’ activities, by attending and participating in program presentations. Transportation is provided to facilitate access to the program site, and for program-related field trips.

Following are brief summaries of six Interdistrict Grants:
