Battle Ground Education Foundation donates $20,000 for Chromebooks
The Battle Ground Education Foundation (BGeF) has donated $20,000 to Battle Ground Public Schools for the purchase of Chromebook computers and software licenses. Chromebooks are a type of laptop computer that are easy to manage, cost-effective, and compatible with the Google suite of education apps that the district has used since 2012. Battle Ground Schools provides a Chromebook to every student through its one-to-one computing initiative.
The $20,000 donation was made possible thanks to a grant from the Honorable Frank L. and Arlene G. Price Foundation. The mission of the Price Foundation is to improve education, health and historic preservation in Clark and Cowlitz counties by recognizing unfulfilled needs and funding projects that make a difference.
BGeF, which has a sole mission of supporting Battle Ground Public Schools, has also donated to literacy programs, the Family and Community Resource Center, unified sports programs, and more. Thank you BGeF and its contributors!
