North Kingstown was awarded a $305,000 grant through Governor Daniel J. McKee’s LEARN365RI initiative for innovative out-of-school learning opportunities to increase achievements for school-aged youth between September 1, 2023 and September 30, 2024.
Within the grant period, the Town of North Kingstown is collaborating with several community partners, education institutions and other community service providers to implement innovative youth-centered after-school and out-of-school growth and learning outcomes to accomplish the Governor’s three program priorities in communities across the Ocean State:
(1) at least a 70% FAFSA completion rate at North Kingstown High School.
(2) programming to affect an increase in RICAS achievement scores.
(3) increased school attendance rates.
