Grafton Public School is competing to obtain a grant of up to 25-thousand
dollars from Monsanto through its Grow Rural Education Program.
The purpose of that grant is to enhance education in math and/or science.
Superintendent Jack Maus says that's the opportunity he sees if Grafton
wins that grant. Maus tells KXPO they'll write the grant application for Central
Middle School. It'll involve getting supplemental technology and curriculum for
math and science courses at Central Middle School.
Maus says Grafton School has received an initial nomination from a
farmer in the school district. But the more times Grafton School's nominated by
more farmers, the better it looks for its application. Maus says that's important.
Maus says what Grafton needs to enhance the nomination is more individual
farmers from the Grafton school district to nominate Grafton Public School so it
could move up in terms of opportunities to get the grant, if there are numerically
more nominations from more farmers living within the school district.
Maus says the deadline for individual farmers from within the Grafton
School District to nominate Grafton School is April 15th.
