Straight A Grant      
Ohio's Straight A Fund supports ideas from local educators that promote economic efficiency and effectiveness, long-term sustainability and scalability.  Authority for the Straight A Fund derives from Section 263.350 of Am. Sub. H.H. No 64 of the 131st General Assembly.
The Gallia-Vinton ESC was successful in obtaining a Straight A Grant in the amount of $565,425 to help fund a shared services transportation center.  The Gallia Fleet Services project will be built on property owned by Gallipolis City Schools (in close proximity to Green Elementary) and can provide maintenance services to not only the Gallipolis City School fleet, but to other district and governmental entitles as well.  Maintenance work will be preformed by Gallipolis City Schools' maintenance employees.  All participating districts and agencies can expect reduced cost in parts and labor as a result of using a shared services facility.
