RAMAPO, N.Y. -- Chestnut Ridge Middle School in East Ramapo received a federal grant in the amount of $2.4 million for "college and career readiness," according to lohud.

The school is among 39 in New York that are struggling and being given federal grants, according to the report.

The middle school, which received the "worst" ranking making it a "priority school," is one of eight in East Ramapo that the state regarded as "troubled" early in 2016, said lohud.

The rankings are based on how students performed on state tests along with graduation rates, according to lohud.

Grant receiving schools have three years to make improvements, said the report.

The sole Rockland County school being given a grant in this round is Chestnut Ridge Middle School, lohud said.

Increasing student scores on tests and their participation in advanced courses are the district's focus, spokesman Chris Bottini told lohud.
