The Rome City School District will get an additional $225,000 in supplemental funding from the state to help them fund programs and services directly benefiting students.

The funding was announced by Assemblyman Anthony Brindisi.

Brindisi says the district will use the money to expand their Career and Technical Education offerings and alternative education programs that help prevent as-risk students from dropping out of high school.

He says that will help students stay in school and prepare for jobs in the manufacturing and technical fields that lead to good paying careers.
