Mayfield Middle School receives $3 million grant

Staff report

Mayfield Middle School has received a $3 million federal grant to help improve its staff leadership and student performance.

It is one of six Kentucky middle schools chosen to receive one of 25 U.S. Department of Education Investing in Innovation grants. The four-year grant runs from Jan. 1, 2014, to Dec. 31, 2017, and will provide assistance in implementing programs, developing practices and establishing organizational structures consistent with the National Forum's Schools to Watch criteria for high-performing middle schools.

A leadership coach with middle school experience and a mentor middle school will work with Mayfield Middle School during the four years of the grant to help improve student achievement and achieve Schools to Watch national recognition.

A school leadership team, including a district office representative, will be identified to facilitate the grant's implementation. This team will participate in training focused on the work of the grant and be engaged in both state and national Schools to Watch networks to exchange ideas, solve problems and discuss practices.

The school staff will complete an online evaluation of the school that will serve as a baseline measure and provide data for determining focus areas for school improvement.
