KHS will have "Classrooms for the Future"

Today Governor Rendall officially announced the recipients of the 2007-08 "Classrooms for the Future" grants. Keystone High School will receive $168,305 for teacher training and technology equipment for core classrooms in Grades 9 and 10. We are the only Clarion County high school to receive this grant. If the CFF initiative is funded again next year, we will expand our program to Grades 11 and 12.

Although we are thrilled with our award, it is substantially less than the amount we requested in our grant proposal. We will be crunching numbers to get the most bang for our bucks! The tech equipment to be purchased with CFF dollars includes projection systems, whiteboards, teacher laptops, classroom carts of laptops, printers, scanners, and more. Teachers will receive extensive training in technology integration.

This is such an exciting, scary time for all of us. Stay tuned for updates as we begin to implement this innovative program!
