Director of Cleveland City Schools Dr. Russell Dyer announced that Cleveland High School has received the first Fitzgerald Innovation Grant in the amount of $15,000.
Dr. Dyer said, “Cleveland City Schools is very excited to be awarded this grant; it will provide additional equipment and technology for Cleveland High School's Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) Think Space. In addition to the equipment and technology, teachers and students will be able to experience rigorous real-world hands-on technology as related to all academic disciplines. The Think Space will be located in the Media Center where students and teachers will be able to utilize the equipment and technology to enhance their learning experiences."
As Cleveland High School pursues Tennessee STEM Designation, funds received from the Fitzgerald Innovation Grant will be a compliment to the school-wide STEM initiative as it continues to expand its academic opportunities for all students.
