The Nellie Mae Education Foundation Board of Directors has approved more than $16.2 million in grants to five school districts across New England. Funding will further the implementation of phase II of Building New Models for System Change (BNM) grantees in Pittsfield, NH and Portland, Maine; and phase I for New Approaches in Urban Districts (NAUD) grantees in Hartford and Meriden, Conn., and Revere, Mass. Funding for the Burlington and Winooski school districts, which were a part of the original cohort of Building New Models for System Change, has been deferred by the Foundation until the spring 2015, when it can better determine if the districts’ new leadership can embrace full implementation of student-centered approaches to learning.
