Spring Branch ISD still glowing on $2M grant

Posted: Updated:
HOUSTON (FOX 26) -

Spring ISD officials are excited about the $2-million grant from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.

The money will be used for Spring Branch's partnership with KIPP Academy and YES Prep.

This is the first year the district has offered schools within a school.

The district's innovation merges charter school education methods with the benefits of a public school campus.

The grant money will help cover the start-up costs of the charter-school partnership.
