US Army Corps of Engineers - Galveston District gives back with a byte

It was an exciting day for two preparatory schools on Galveston Island thanks to a large donation by the Galveston District.

After losing all their computer equipment Sept. 13, 2008, to Hurricane Ike, O’Connell College Preparatory and Odyssey Academy collectively received more than 200 computers, monitors, keyboards and mice for use by the students and teachers at each school.

“It’s a big plus to these schools to receive these computers with wiped hard drives,” said Marianne Fullen, computer donation coordinator with the Galveston District Logistics Activity. “Instead of computers being destroyed, they’re sent to schools.”

Action Alert: American Recovery and Reinvestment Plan

We need the help of all teachers, parents and any other interested parties to take action NOW! Please send the message to congress that charter schools are public schools and deserve their fair share of the economic stimulus education funds that are to be given to public schools.

The House has passed, and the Senate Appropriations Committee has approved, the two Chambers’ versions of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Plan (ARRP), the economic stimulus bill President Obama has called for. Both bills contain significant increases in education spending with new resources dedicated to school modernization, renovation, and repairs. The Senate bill reached the floor this week, and the two bills will need to be reconciled. The House bill is far more favorable to charter schools, and it is critical that the movement mobilize quickly to support it.
