Schools receive funding boost




Teachers at Indian Creek schools who want to start programs to help students become stronger writers or buy e-readers for their classrooms are getting help from the education foundation.

In the last two years, the foundation has raised more than $23,000 to give away in grants that teachers can apply for. So far, teachers have received money for Nooks and e-books, reading workbooks and computer software to help improve students’ grammar, spelling and word choice.
