Newport Town School Receives Technology Grant from Vermont Lottery

25 April 2016

BARRE – The Vermont Lottery and Vermont Agency of Education announces Newport Town School, in Newport Center, Vermont, a K-6 public school, as the Spring 2016 winner of the Educate/Innovate Grant Program. This is the third round of what is now a twice-annual award.

The program, funded by the Vermont Lottery, will provide a cart of iPads to the school in support of their proposal, which was a student-selected project meant to address what they perceive as a problem in their community. The students will be working with a community animal shelter to help streamline and promote pet adoptions. The proposed project will integrate multiple core curriculums as they use video, editing, writing and marketing tools to help the local shelter streamline their process and hopefully accelerate adoptions over time. Students will collect data and monitor their success as they develop the program. The proposal was a favorite of reviewers because it represented a student-identified issue within their community.
