High-tech learning tools
A $10,000 EIO Fund grant sponsored by Washington Financial Bank was awarded to Washington School District through the Washington County Community Foundation to support the district’s technology program. The grant was used primarily to purchase eReaders for a high-tech pilot project designed to better engage students. “Our first goal is to use these devices to increase reading achievement in both fiction and nonfiction literature, and our second goal is to utilize them for electronic communication and receptive expressive language skills for special education students. This technology will help us determine if these tools are a viable and more effective delivery method for students with different needs,” said Dr. Roberta P. DiLorenzo, Washington School District superintendent. Brian Smith, Washington Financial president and WCCF trustee, visits with students in the district. With financial support from its many corporate partners, WCCF has awarded close to $400,000 from its EIO Fund to public schools in Washington County.
