Ten Milwaukee elementary schools will get extra funding to support more coaching for teachers and collaborative planning time over the next four years thanks to a retooled $20.4 million grant from the GE Foundation that aims to increase student achievement in Milwaukee Public Schools.

The 10 schools are: Browning School, Clemens School, Curtin School, 53rd St. School, Fratney School, Kagel School, Milwaukee Sign Language School, 95th Street School, Pierce Street School and Victory School for the Gifted and Talented.

The 10 were chosen from 42 schools invited to apply to become a GE Foundation Demonstration School, MPS officials announced Monday at Fratney School in Riverwest.

At least 75% of the teaching staff at the demonstration schools had to support developing innovative ways of putting a new set of national curriculum standards into daily practice.
