School districts are always looking for ways to raise money and in many cases receive grants. While applying for a grant can be challenging, the Madison School District has been awarded a $660,000 stipend to enhance its afterschool activities.

Both Kennedy Elementary School and Madison Junior High School will be the recipients of a $660,000 grant for their after school programs.
