Dothan city schools are receiving extra funding for making significant improvements in student achievement.

Five city schools are receiving financial rewards for excelling.

These financial rewards range from $5,000 to more than $23,000. Usually schools have an annual fixed budget, so receiving extra dollars like this can really go a long way in making changes.

A total of 313 schools around the state will receive nearly $3 million for making significant improvements in student achievement.
