Thanks to the Education Service Center Region 12 Technology Foundation! They surprised our ATLAS Academy with a grant Tuesday morning for nearly $5,000 to incorporate drone technology into the classroom.

One of our ATLAS teachers, Chuck Viladevall, accepted the grant and promised it will be put to good use, and students are excited about incorporating drones in their STEM studies.

Waco ISD is one of nine districts getting a total of nearly $70,000 in funds from that foundation to support technology programs.

Those recipients were chosen from a pool of nearly 50 applications.

Holland, McGregor, Moody and Belton ISDs also received grant checks Tuesday.
