THE CITY REBORN FROM THE ASHES OF AMERICA'S MOST DISASTROUS FOREST FIRE
Wausaukee School District Gets a Round Eleven Grant
Issue Date: July 5, 2017
The Wausaukee School District is recent recipient of a $18,400 grant from the Wisconsin Technology Initiative to help reduce the financial barriers of integrating instructional technology into the classrooms.
The Wausaukee School District used the grant money to purchase three new SMART Boards, audio equipment for the SMART Boards, and one Chrome Book cart. The SMART Boards will be installed in classrooms that currently do not have them so that the teachers can use interactive programs with their students. The Chrome Books will be utilized in the elementary in an effort to get more devices into the hands of our students.
"We are excited about the opportunity that the WTI foundation has given us with this grant," said Jared Deschane, 7-12 Principal at Wausaukee. "The additional SMART Boards will ensure that our students have interactive technology in all of their classrooms and the Chrome Book cart will be an excellent addition to our elementary"
"We knew the Wausaukee School District would understand the importance and would put the technology to good use," said Mike Kerr, Executive Director of Wisconsin Technology Initiative. "We are excited to see the positive results that will come from this project."
The Wisconsin Technology Initiative was established in 2010 by John and Tashia Morgridge to improve academic achievement by providing funding for the advancement of instructional technology in learning environments throughout the state of Wisconsin.
