Monday, May 03 2010 13:46

The Iowa Office of Energy Independence (OEI) has selected the City of Washington to receive an Energy Efficient Conservation Block Grant in the amount of $1,000,000.  The funding will be used for the following projects at Stewart Elementary School: adding insulation, upgrading HVAC system, windows and lighting.

The Iowa OEI has awarded 78 statewide grants totaling $5.8 million under the Energy Efficiency and Conservation Block Grant (EECBG) and American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) program for projects across the state that will reduce energy use, have a positive impact on budgets and enhance the economic development through job creation.  Washington was awarded the largest grant in the State of Iowa.  This was truly a team effort of many people within our school district (Dave Sextro, Superintendent; Jeff Dieleman, Business Manager & Veta Thode, Curriculum Director) and special thanks to members of the city of Washington (Dave Plyman, City Administrator & Ed Raber, Director of Washington Economic Development Group).  Thank you!

Over the next four years, the WCSD will be receiving $283,000 from Microsoft.  The funds are from a class action lawsuit by Iowa consumers and businesses where according to the settlement a portion of the unclaimed sum would go to Iowa Schools based on free and reduced lunch rates.  All 5 of our schools qualified.  The funds will be used to support the implementation of the Iowa Core Curriculum.  Our district is eligible for approximately $283,000 over a four-year period.  Funds will be dispersed: 50% on eligible software, 35% on eligible hardware and 15% on professional development.  Only Microsoft approved items qualify for purchase.  Our project includes: classroom computers, assistance with implementation of a high-speed wireless network, innovative software for writing/ publishing and professional development.  The process for applying for this funding began April 2009 and the district plan was approved April 2010.  Thanks to Jeff Brock (Technology Coordinator), John TeBockhorst (Assistant Technology Coordinator) and Veta Thode (Curriculum Director) for all your hard work in making this happen!
