CONCORD - Eight schools in New Hampshire and Vermont are sharing a $25,000 grant for the 2015-16 year to support literacy programs, events, professional development and buy new books.

In New Hampshire, the Children's Literacy Foundation grant is going to Groveton Elementary School, Paul Smith School in Franklin, Richards Elementary School in Newport and Wentworth Elementary School.

Vermont schools receiving the grant are Central Elementary School in Bellows Falls, Lothrop Elementary School in Pittsford, Newport Town School in Newport Center and South Royalton School.

The grant helps schools with high percentages of students scoring below state standards on reading and writing tests and high percentages of students who qualify for free or reduced lunch.
