The Lucia Mar School District got a hefty check Thursday from the United States Department of Education.
Representative Lois capps announced that the school district has been awarded a $7.2 million Teacher Incentive Fund grant. The grant aims to help with the resources needed to attract the best teachers around.
The Teacher Incentive Fund is funded by the Recovery Act. The Recovery Act has saved nearly 45,000 education jobs in California.
"Our community is blessed to have so many wonderfully inspiring teachers dedicated to teaching our children and preparing them for the future," said Rep. Capps.
Representative Capps wrote a letter to the Department of Education earlier this year in support of Lucia Mar's application. Applications are judged in a rigorous peer review.
