Public schools in three states to receive $500,000 for technology, science and arts from Leonore Annenberg School Fund

PHILADELPHIA – Ten public elementary schools in three states will receive grants averaging $50,000 from the Leonore Annenberg School Fund for Children, which provides underfunded schools in urban and rural areas with educational resources to make a difference in the lives of young children.

The Leonore Annenberg School Fund’s 2016 grants total nearly $500,000 for resources such as art and music programs, STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts and math) labs, computers and educational software, a mini-greenhouse, and books for classrooms and school libraries. The schools were chosen in consultation with regional, nonprofit partner organizations: Council for Educational Change (Florida), Center for Arts Education (New York), Public Education Foundation (Chattanooga, Tenn.), and Rural School and Community Trust (other Tennessee schools).
