Richland One Awarded $15 Million Grant to Add Magnet Programs
Richland One has been awarded a $15 million federal grant to add magnet programs to four district schools. The award announcement was made today (September 27) by the U.S. Department of Education.
Funds from the federal Magnet Schools Assistance Program (MSAP) will help expand the Richland One Language Immersion Program at Carver-Lyon Elementary School to include French and related arts, along with a global leadership component. Three other Richland One schools will use their grant money to focus on leadership and career readiness. Bradley Elementary School will create a career awareness program. W.G. Sanders Middle School will have a career exploration magnet. W.J. Keenan High School will develop a career preparation magnet, as well as four academies to help students prepare for jobs in the fields of hospitality/tourism, government, entrepreneurship and engineering.
“We are excited about receiving this grant which will help us expand the educational options we offer our students,” said Richland One Superintendent Dr. Craig Witherspoon.
The four district magnet programs will begin in the 2018-2019 school year. Richland One is one of 32 districts in the nation to receive the grants. The grant funds will be awarded over a five-year period. The goal of the MSAP grants is to create magnet schools that increase racial integration and promote academic opportunity and excellence.

A Message from the Principal:
I take great pride in being the principal of W. G. Sanders Middle School because of the wonderful staff, students and parents. I continue to be amazed with the rich history of traditions that help prepare students for a successful career in high school.
This year we are implementing a wide variety of developmentally appropriate strategies in facilitating the learning for our students. Teachers continue to infuse technology into student lessons, and teachers continue to provide a challenging curriculum for our students.
Stop by our parent and community center to find ways in which you can support our community initiatives. Also, take a look at our mission statement, our beliefs and our action plans. Give us feedback as we continue to monitor and enhance our instructional program.
I look forward to working with all of you.
