Beloit Turner students were able to improve their math and reading skills this year thanks to their participation in some unique online math classes offered through Northwestern University. Beloit Turner received a grant through the Department of Public Instruction to cover online math courses for fifth through eighth graders in the gifted and talented program for the 2013-2014 school year, said Sue Brandenburg, the program coordinator for the Literacy, Gifted and Talented programs. Beloit Turner along with Oregon and Horicon school districts partnered with the Wisconsin Center for Academically Talented Youth (WCATY) to apply for the grant. The three school districts received a total of $29,930. Beloit Turner received $10,625, which was used for students who wanted to take online math classes through Northwestern University’s WCATY program.
