RUSD gets $140,000 for programs at Julian Thomas, Starbuck

The Racine Unified School District has received $140,000 for programs at Julian Thomas Elementary School and Project New Life at Starbuck Middle School.

The five-year, 21st Century Community Learning Centers grants were distributed by the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction.

The 21st Century Community Learning Centers are intended to improve student achievement, attendance and behavior with academic, enrichment and social and recreational activities. The Centers offer before- and after-school and summer programs that provide academic support and promote parental involvement through outreach activities, family literacy events and parental skill development.


  1. Where does DPI get the $140K ya, we know - throw more $ at it

  2. Starbucks for Julian Thomas??? Please fix the home page headline.

    More information about how the program will work would be appreciated. I hope it goes beyond LIghted Schoolhouse and really helps the students.
