MURRAY -- The West Kentucky Educational Cooperative announced Wednesday it has received a seven-year, $9.5 million renewable grant that will be used to improve technology in the classroom and bolster school-to-work guidance at 20 schools in 10 area school districts.

The goal, according to WKEC, is to "increase the number of students - particularly minorities, those from low-income backgrounds, English learners and special-needs students - who are prepared to enter postsecondary education, gain industry certifications and enter the workforce in high-demand industry sectors with an emphasis on STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) related fields, particularly computer science."

The grant project, called West Kentucky GEAR UP - which stands for Gaining Early Awareness and Readiness for Undergraduate Programs - comes from the U.S. Department of Education's Office of Postsecondary Education. It is designed to help students get a high school-level diploma and help them succeed in postsecondary education.
