CAPS grants $43,000 to AUSD

Posted: Tuesday, Oct 22nd, 2013

ATASCADERO — The Committee for Atascadero Public Schools announced last week that they have answered 81 funding requests from Atascadero teachers — awarding a total of $43,000 at 12 different district schools.

“We read all the grants last week and we were able to award 81 of them,” CAPS representative Kathy Peterson told the Atascadero Unified School District board of trustees at a meeting last Tuesday. “We gave away $43,000 and we were very pleased with that.”

Answering grant requests that come directly from Atascadero teachers, Peterson says the organization bought 16 iPads, seven sets of text books, two sewing machines, six digital cameras, three tricycles, P.E. equipment, art supplies, library books, supplies for the elementary music program and much more.
