Seven school districts in rural Georgia are getting a boost to help fund several initiatives including literacy programming, an elementary agricultural program, support for a STEM program, virtual reality headsets to help elementary students experience and explore the world, and an after-school extracurricular program. The funds are being provided through the Georgia Foundation for Public Education (GFPE). This is the fifth round of Rural Education Fund grants.

“From the first disbursement of the Rural Education Fund grants, we have seen schools and districts utilize the funds to support bold, creative, and student-centric projects. The 2022-2023 grantees carry on that legacy,” GFPE Executive Director Paige Pushkin said. “The Rural Education Fund is funded by the purchase of ‘Educator’ and ‘Support Education’ Georgia license tag and I appreciate all those who made it possible. I cannot wait to see the work the seven 2022-2023 grant recipients accomplish.”
