Hogsett receives $62,000 tech grant

Danville's Hogsett Elementary School has received a $62,725 technology grant from the Beaumont Foundation of America.

The grants go to schools and community groups serving low-income populations and individuals. They pay for state-of-the-art wireless laptop computers and related technology equipment.


Hogsett will use its grant to pay for 30 laptops, five extra batteries, a wireless access point/print server with range extender, two laser printers, two 18-unit mobile carts, and six digital cameras.

"I am so excited about receiving this grant," said Patti Rowland, curriculum technology resource teacher at Hogsett. "The addition of the 30 laptops will nearly double the access that our students have to computers."

Rowland said that there is little space in the school's computer lab or elsewhere in the building for additional desktop computers. "Having mobile laptops will allow teachers and entire classes of students to use technology right in their classrooms," she said.


Casey County Hospital District Board of Trustees - 8 p.m. today for a special meeting in the hospital board room. The board will discuss and consider bids received regarding expansion and renovation of the Primary Care building.
