Area school districts awarded grants from DWD

MADISON, Wis. (WXOW) – Two area school districts receive grants to help better prepare high school students for the workforce or post secondary education.

It's part of Governor Scott Walker's Blueprint for Prosperity, a comprehensive plan to provide tax relief and invest in worker training. He is calling it the School to Work program.

There will be 30 grants awarded by the State Department of Workforce Development (DWD) totaling $2.1 million.

The Tomah Area School district will be awarded $77,890. The West Salem School District will receive $20,000 and La Crosse's CESA 6 will also be awarded a grant.

The School to Work program will kick off during the 2014-2015 academic year.
