Bridging the technology gap between schools is the goal for the Tri-Valley School District. A $10,000 grant from Ameritech was received to acquire new computer technology for their middle school students. Ameritech’s B.J. Smith says that the company is proud to provide funding that will benefit Tri-Valley students. Other funds combined with Ohio Community Technology Fund Project Grant will allow the district to acquire new technology to be implemented in a 30 station computer lab as part of the educational program at the middle school. Modulars have currently been set up to house the computers and the students even helped get the process underway.
The Ohio Community Technology Fund is now accepting grant proposals for a second round of funding valued at $750,000. For more information on how your school can benefit form this program log on to their website at www.ctfohio.org or call (614) 501-1697.
