Four Middle Georgia school systems will get a total of more than $15 million from the Race to the Top grant during the next four school years.
Bibb, Jones, Peach and Pulaski schools will benefit from the federal school-improvement grants. Bibb will get the largest chunk, more than $13 million.
According to the state Department of Education, Peach will get nearly $1.2 million, Jones about $570,000 and Pulaski about $338,000.
The Bibb County district says Superintendent Sylvia McGee and other representatives from Bibb County attended a meeting at the Georgia Department of Education about the grant.
They say allocations for the 26 participating districts are based on the federal Title I formula, which counts the number of needy children in the district.
According to the GaDOE, that means Bibb County will receive $13,297,398 during the next four years.
