The Gates Foundation is sending $5 million to help Mississippi school districts with students displaced by Hurricane Katrina.

Part of the donation will be used to recruit experienced educators to serve as "coaches" for teachers and administrators in 50 schools.

The money also will be spent on services for displaced students and their families.
