 Albany- Three Dougherty County Title I schools will get some extra money for meeting state education reform requirements.

Monroe High, Dougherty High and Lamar Reese Elementary met adequate yearly progress standards for the fourth year in a row. Each will get grants of more than $59,000.

Monroe's money will help finance a math, engineering and technology magnet and help teachers learn new ways to teach.

"Some of our students have a fear of math," said Principal Deloris Spears. "And we're going to offer our teachers staff development to help develop skills and strategies to tear down the walls of fear in math."

 The principal says rewarding students for achieving and teachers who are eager to stay after school to tutor students is helping them meet the state testing standards.
