  • Grant to help improve air quality at Kingston, Midtown

    The American Association of School Administrators recently awarded a $1,000 grant to Roane County Schools to target two schools with several asthmatic students and take steps to improve air quality in those schools.

    The anticipated outcome is to reduce absenteeism for asthmatics.

    Midtown and Kingston Elementary schools volunteered to be the grant recipients.  

    Educational materials about asthma triggers and safeguards were prepared and distributed to parents, students and staff.
