The New Bedford School District is being awarded over $2 million from the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education.

The $2.4 million School Redesign Grant will be used over the next three years to help fund the turnaround plan at New Bedford High School. This fiscal year’s cost for implementing the turnaround plan is $2.2 million.

The grant is one of six being awarded to struggling schools state-wide by the Patrick administration, all of them totaling just over $9 million.

In a written release, Superintendent Dr. Pia Durkin says the grant will be used to partially support the turnaround effort at the high school, while allowing the proposed budget to meet other pressing district needs that have been prioritized during the budget process.
