Castaic Elementary and Castaic Middle schools are in the race to win grants from the “ScholarShare Scholar Dollars” program, a grant program which helps fund public school programs, extracurriculars, and needed tools that enrich students’ experiences.
Scholar Dollars is a new grant program from Treasurer John Chiang and ScholarShare, which aims to support extracurricular and enrichment programs, such as new science lab equipment, band uniforms, tutoring programs and more.
The program is run by the California State Treasurer and is sponsored by the ScholarShare College Savings Plan; it gives away 20 grants that range up to $25,000 to various public and charter schools who service students in eighth grade or lower.
On the ScholarDollars voting hub, Castaic Elementary states they would use “the grant money to purchase Chromebooks. Our goal is for every student at Castaic Elementary School to have a Chromebook to use at school.”
Castaic Middle School states the grant money would go towards Chromebooks as well, stating the technology will help fulfill their “goal of teaching and creating innovative and 21st century minded students.”
In order to win, the schools need to garner votes which can be cast by anyone. Vote soon, as the contest closes on March March 24, 2017; winners are determined on April 3, 2017.
