Dakota Electric Association recently awarded $10,000 from unclaimed capital credits to go toward specific needs within four different school districts.
Superintendents and representatives from Cannon Falls, Northfield, Randolph and Red Wing attended a recent Dakota Electric board meeting to receive the donations.
Cannon Falls will use the money to purchase equipment to enhance its STEAM program (science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics). Northfield will use the money to help implement and expand technology use, increase tutoring and educational opportunities for elementary students and grow its Response to Intervention and Multitiered Systems of Support. Randolph will purchase technology and science lab equipment, and Red Wing will purchase technology and engineering kits for its STEAM program.
All the representatives from the districts acknowledged their appreciation for Dakota Electric’s support of their educational efforts.
“We are happy to be able to provide financial support from unclaimed capital credits to worthwhile educational programs,” Board Chair Jim Sheldon said.
