LCS Given School Quality Grant

As the student body changes and evolves, so too do our teachers and administrators. Recently, the focus has been on student mental health, so Lancaster City Schools has recently written and received a large grant to conduct quality professional development for the staff. This training gives our educators the tools to help students with their most pressing mental health concerns and will provide much more for four of our targeted buildings. Stay tuned this school year as we highlight how the district is using this grant and how the students will benefit. #theplacetobe
