Taylor Elementary School Blessed by Major Grant
The Leonore Annenberg School Fund for Children has announced an award to Taylor Elementary School for nearly $50,000. This grant will provide laptops for all fourth- and fifth-grade students, including mobile hotspots for at-home use so students can conduct research and communicate with people around the globe.
PEF-Chattanooga collaborated with the Bradley Cleveland Public Education Foundation for the second year to extend its reach to regional schools in their mission to transform public education. Bradley Cleveland Public Education Foundation, through gifts from the private sector, supports innovative academic initiatives in Cleveland and Bradley County.
Gail Levin, Ph.D., director of The Leonore Annenberg Scholarship, Fellowship, and School Funds, said, “Since 2010, the Leonore Annenberg School Fund for Children has partnered with PEF to provide underserved schools with essential resources. While the term ‘value added’ is too often used in the absence of both context and definition, Leonore Annenberg’s grants to public elementary schools are sure to make a clear case for improved teaching and learning.”
PEF president Dan Challener added, “Leonore Annenberg was committed to improving the lives of children, particularly those who, with support, will become leaders of the next generation. These grants certainly underscore the heart of her mission to provide students resources to help them shine brightly.”
