ST. LOUIS — Gov. Jay Nixon will be in St. Louis Tuesday to announce more than $4 million in grants to fund technology in schools.

The Democrat will make the announcement at 11 a.m. at Carnahan High School of the Future in St. Louis. Democratic U.S. Reps. Russ Carnahan and William Lacy Clay are expected to appear with Nixon.

Schools receiving grants were selected through a competitive application process. The grants are funded through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.

At 2 p.m. Tuesday, Nixon will speak at the Regional Collaboration Center in Fenton. The center, opened by the Missouri Department of Economic Development, will help laid-off autoworkers through retraining and job search assistance.
