SCHENECTADY, N.Y. -- The Schenectady City School District received a School Innovation Fund grant from the state Department of Education.

The district plans to use the more than $2.4 million grant at Lincoln Elementary School. The school will work with a number of partners including Ellis Medicine, Capital Area School Development Association and the Child Guidance Center.

The goal is to create a school based health center, a family empowerment center, provide on-site counseling and mental health services and expand education to support students with learning needs. The school will also use the funding to better prepare students for college and careers.

Schenectady is one of three schools in New York to receive the grant. Newburgh City School District and Rochester City School district were also awarded grants. ClientIP:, UserAgent: CCBot/2.0 ( Profile: TWCSAMLSP
