AUDIO: Local schools receive grant to fight teen pregnancy

The Beloit School District benefits from a grant to offer comprehensive services to pregnant and parenting students.

Executive Director of Pupil Services Barb Buffington says the $75,000 grant comes from the department of public instruction.

Buffington says not only will the money be used toward prevention, but it will also help fund the district's School Age Parent Program.

The School District of Janesville received a similar grant of $103,000, and state-wide the Department of Public Instruction is granting $1.2 million for Wisconsin's In School Pregnant and PArenting Interventions, Resources, and Education project.
