New Teacher Wish-List Projects Include Many Tech Twists

The Boardman Schools Fund for Educational Excellence has awarded eight teacher mini-grants this year, worth nearly  $8,500.    Each project is creative--most are technology focused-- and all will encourage 21st Century learning.  


These Grants allow teachers to give students experiences which go beyond what is provided by state and local funding.   Items to be purchased for the 2017/2018 school year include:

Spectrophotometer for light analysis for biology and chemistry students

Augmented Reality Sandbox for studying erosion, topography and landforms

Cricut Maker for Visual Arts for sculpture, drawing, and graphic design students

Teleprompter for video production/broadcast students

Bookworm Project for guided reading for elementary students

Google Expedition Kit for Virtual Reality of History and Science for 7th and 8th graders

Exercise Bands and Agility Ladder for POWER Club and Personal Fitness at Glenwood Jr. High.

STEM Stations and Manipulatives for kindergarten students


  “These projects all have great merit, but as school districts work to control costs, the funding can be a challenge,” said Superintendent Tim Saxton.  “That’s why the money raised by the Boardman Schools Fund For Educational Excellence and its partnership with the Boardman Education Association is so crucial, and appreciated!” Each project was capped at $1,500.
