Grants have been awarded to local educators from the Danbury Education Foundation. Classroom Excellence Grants were presented to 5 Danbury teachers for interactive whiteboards, a listening center, interactive foreign language and other programs.
The grants were presented by Foundation member State Senator Mike McLachlan. He says each application showed a tremendous commitment that Danbury teachers have to their students. He added that the quality of proposals submitted made choosing the winners difficult.
