It’s that time of year again! The time when we share the winners of our annual grant program, which provides up to $20,000 dollars worth of aid to programs from schools in the communities we serve.
Our first grant spotlight this year is Cody-Kilgore High School, which received a grant worth over $4,500 dollars from out “Commitment to the Schools” program!
The school will purchase two Mobi Mobile Interactive Whiteboards, which turns any whiteboard into an interactive learning center. The system is easily portable meaning that several classrooms will be able to take advantage of the technology. The grant will also be used to purchase 32 CPS response systems, which allows students to tailor the learning environment to their level of need.
The new system will be used by multiple departments including mathematics and English. The new technology joins several other cutting-edge initiatives at Cody-Kilgore High School. The school is a 1:1 school for 7-12 grade students. This means that each student receives a laptop for educational purposes. The school also has an entrepreneurship program that is launching a student-run grocery store.
Does your school have a great idea? It’s never too early to think about a grant submission for next year!
