D-200 foundation awards $23,000 in grants

WOODSTOCK – District 200 teachers and professional staff now have an extra $23,000 to put toward their students thanks to help from the District 200 Education Foundation.

The foundation presented grants to 66 recipients at a reception at Woodstock North High School earlier this month.

The money will go toward enhancing and expanding the ability for teachers, media specialists and other staff to meet their students’ needs, according to a release from the foundation.

This year, grants cover $4,000 to buy books, $3,600 toward technology in the classroom, $4,000 toward classroom supplies and more than $2,000 toward expanding fine arts programs, the release said.

“The D-200 Education Foundation was formed over 20 years ago to help give teachers in the district the sources needed to enrich the classroom experience of D-200 students,” foundation Chairman Erich Thurow said.

The foundation has awarded more than $440,000 in grants since 1993.
