Public school teachers across Virginia may now be getting some help with funding for classroom projects. They hope the web site, DonorsChoose.com, can make their wishes come true.
The site went live in Virginia last month, and as of Thursday, public school teachers across the state have posted 277 projects to be funded. The site allows donors to fund projects that schools may not have been able to pay for otherwise.
Harrisonburg superintendent Dr. Donald Ford says, "I'm sure there are lots of activities that our teachers would be able to propose. They are innovative teachers. They're dedicated professionals, and there are always requests to do more beyond what we have the resources to provide."
Donors can search projects on the site by state, subject, grade level, cost, or specific keywords.
