D-200 receives three grants

District 200 will improve their advanced placement programs, beef up their library resources and power a rooftop garden through solar power with the help of three recently awarded grants.

The Illinois State Board of Education gave the district $50,000 to put toward advanced placement and pre-advanced placement programs. The money will help the district bring more low-income and disadvantaged students into those programs, according to a release from District 200.

The district's libraries will soon be stocked with a greater volume of non-fiction to support a new geography curriculum and Common Core Language Arts Standards. Money for those resources will come from a $5,000 grant from the Illinois State Library.

Additionally, the Illinois Clean Energy Community Foundation awarded Woodstock High School $8,000 to power a new rooftop garden built by the school's Green Club, Enriothon Team and environmental science classes. The grant covers the installation of a single 1 kW Photovoltaic (PV) Solar Panel System, the release said.
