Rockcastle County Schools receives interactive flat panels and distance learning equipment through a DLT grant
Rockcastle County Schools received a major classroom upgrade through a DLT Grant from the United Stated Department of Agriculture. Interactive flat panels and distance learning equipment have been purchased for use in all high school classrooms at Rockcastle. These items will help to increase student engagement and improve education outcomes for students throughout the district as well as giving students access to mental health professionals. Additionally, equipment was placed with Rockcastle’s partners, Rockcastle Regional Hospital and Respiratory Care Center and Somerset Mental Health.
Rockcastle County, KY qualified for the grant through the Rural Utility Services program of the USDA. As an extremely rural county in Kentucky with high economic need, Rockcastle County’s unique demographics made it a perfect fit for this grant. A partnership with InCare K12, the equipment provider developed as both groups worked together to dream this project into reality.
InCare K12 is thrilled to see this project come into fruition. Many months of dreaming, planning, hard work, and waiting are all finally being realized in Rockcastle County. The immediate impact this equipment will have on teachers and students will be so exciting for all of us to watch. InCare K12 partners with many districts each year to apply for this grant.
