The Education Foundation of Lake County has awarded more than $13,000 in grant money to support 13 educator-submitted programs that potentially will impact 1,400 students.
The funding comes from a matching grant program with the Consortium of Florida Education Foundations. Last fall, the Consortium designated more than $77,500 to the Education Foundation of Lake County to match monies raised from private donors.
Programs that will be funded include a 3D art system for Eustis Heights Elementary School students that integrates math and science as students create two- and three-dimensional artworks.
Additionally, a Mount Dora Middle School teacher received funding for an online auditory comprehension skills program that will help improve standardized test performance for students whose listening comprehension skills are below grade level.
The other Lake County Schools awarded grants are
|Astatula Elementary||Lake Minneola High|
|Beverly Shores Elementary||Minneola Charter|
|Cypress Ridge Elementary||Tavares High|
|Eustis Middle||Umatilla Elementary|
