About this grant

This grant will provide support to the Flint Community Schools to aid in the development and execution of a marketing campaign aimed at retaining and recruiting students to the district. It is critical that the district bolster enrollment figures as it seeks to gain financial stability and improve student academic outcomes. The STEM-focused curriculum at the Brownell/Holmes STEM Academy, the new districtwide educational plan, and the newly envisioned community schools model are among the important elements in retaining and attracting families to the district.
