Mini-Grants for technology, curriculum and materials, and special programs were awarded on October 16 to 66 Quincy Public Schools teachers across all grade levels. Over $20,000 was awarded courtesy of the Boston University Consortium, the David Ezickson Excellence in Education Grants, Quincy School-Community Partnership Grants, and StreetWorks Development Grants. Funded grants include iPads and other tablets, Math and Science website subscriptions, Science & Engineering software, welding materials and equipment, science lab equipment, an adolescent stress-management program, and support for the Elementary School All-City Band and Middle School Honors Band.
