The Siloam Springs School Board was informed by Asst. Superintendent Beverly Reed that the school system had been awarded an $8,000 grant from the state Education Department to disseminate information on a program being utilized at Northside Elementary.
The program traces each student's development in six basic skill areas. Reed said the funds would be used to produce copies of a computer program used by the school and to write a manual and a brochure on the basic skills program. Packages would then be distributed to interested school systems throughout the state, she said.
The grant received by Siloam Springs Public Schools was the largest monetary grant offered by the state department.
