Dr. Jeremy Raley, Superintendent of Goochland County Public Schools, was joined yesterday by members of the GCPS Executive Leadership team at all Goochland schools to surprise the recipients of the second annual Goochland Education Foundation Strategic Innovation Grants. These grants total nearly $15,000 dollars, including funding from between $400 and $2700 for 12 separate grants, representing each school in the division. Goochland Strategic Innovation Grants were awarded based on a rigorous selection process that involved a committee of school, foundation, and community representatives. 2017 grant awards and descriptions can be found at this link.
