Madison Primary Center getting large grant for STEAM program


The times at Madison Primary Center are like a Bob Dylan song: they are a changin’.

The Indiana Department of Education has awarded a $3.1 million grant to the South Bend school for its STEAM program, according to the South Bend Tribune.

This is the same school that recently had the lowest state assessment grades for four straight years. The grant comes after the state determined Madison’s turning the tide.

STEAM stands for Science, TEchnology, Arts, and Music. It will incorporate all four of those elements into school curriculum. The school district plans on rolling out the program fully in the 2017-2018 school year.

Mary Beck Elementary and Pierre Moran Middle Schools in Elkhart also received grants. The grants totaled $763,110 and $1,150,961 respectively.
