The board of
directors of the Woods Foundation announced on Friday the awarding
of a total of $360,000 in the form of technology grants to school
districts that have school buildings in Logan County.
On March 19, the Woods Foundation issued a
solicitation to superintendents or principals of all school
districts having school buildings in Logan County, requesting that
the schools submit a grant application for each building located in
Logan County to the Woods Foundation for the improvement of
technology. The foundation committed to provide grants of up to
$20,000 for each building located in Logan County if their grant
applications were approved.
There are 18 school buildings in Logan County, representing 11
different school districts. The school districts were given a
deadline of May 1 for submission of a grant application. All school
districts having buildings in Logan County submitted grant
applications, representing 18 educational buildings.
All 18 of the grant applications submitted by the 11 different
districts were approved by the board of directors. A total of
$360,000 in grants was awarded by the foundation.
It is the intention of the board of directors of the Woods
Foundation to provide assistance to the school districts in Logan
County by and through these technology grants. It is hoped that the
funds will enable them to update certain aspects of their technology
to enhance the educational opportunities available to the students
in Logan County.
