Project Description:
Purchase equipment for the STEAM program in the three public middle schools.

Implementing Entities:
Vallejo City Unified School District

Background:
The project was originally conceived in three parts: textbooks for high school libraries, books and equipment for the Accelerated Reader programs at two elementary schools libraries and equipment for the existing VCUSD STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts & Math) program in the middle schools.  After the project was approved, the VCUSD informed the City that it had received a grant for Accelerated Reader programs, and they requested that the funds be allocated in whole to the STEAM program.  The City was amenable to this change.

Project Updates:  VCUSD held a STEAM showcase in March 2015, demonstrating much of the equipment purchased as a result of the PB grant.

To date, approximately 75% of funding has been utilized by VCUSD, with the remainder expected to be expended by June 30, 2015.
