Pisciottano announces $75,000 for West Mifflin School District

State grant to expand dual credit programs

WEST MIFFLIN, May 3 – State Rep. Nick Pisciottano announced today a state grant of $75,000 has been awarded to West Mifflin Area School District to support dual credit opportunities for students.

“One of my top priorities is ensuring local students have all the tools they need to build a successful career,” said Pisciottano. “Dual credit programs help those pursuing higher education excel, and I’m proud to have helped secure this award giving more students that opportunity.”

The grant funding may be used to create or expand equitable and innovative dual credit opportunities for all secondary school students, including students experiencing educational instability, students enrolled in career and technical education programs, low-income students, and historically underserved student groups.

The grant awarded to West Mifflin was one of 10 awarded to Allegheny County schools, and one of 100 awarded to schools across Pennsylvania by the Department of Education this week. A full list of awardees is available here.
