The PED announced an additional $7.7 million in funding Friday for at-risk students across the state.
The funds come from the state’s Direct Student Services initiative.
That sets aside 3 percent of the statewide federal Title I allocation to improve math and literacy outcomes, high-quality tutoring and, in some cases, transportation for students in rural areas.
More than $400,000 will be spent in Albuquerque.
