2018 Impact Schools Grant Recipients
SHAPE America has selected ten Title I schools to receive the 2018 Impact Schools grant. These schools are located in nine different states across the country. They represent more than 5,000 students, where the majority of each school’s enrollment qualifies for free and reduced lunch.
