ANCHORAGE (AP) -- Alaska has received more than $67 million in federal funds for school programs, the U.S. Department of Education announced Wednesday.
The money is part of more than $16 billion in grants awarded to states and school districts nationwide.
Some of the money in Alaska will go toward improving literacy rates, providing drug and alcohol treatment for youths and helping students with disabilities. Funds also will be used for community technology centers and vocational education programs. Some of the funds will go toward supporting charter schools.
