“The city of Plano will give Plano ISD $500,000 it received through the CARES Act, the federal stimulus package passed to help shore up the economy during the coronavirus pandemic, allowing the school district to purchase COVID-19 safety equipment.”
Toyota USA is also giving the Plano ISD $155,000 according to this article from Community Impact magazine published last October 22nd, in it they say:
“The district will receive more than $155,000 to put toward three projects: online science labs, computer science online textbooks and resources, and a foreign language website subscription, an Oct. 21 press release stated. The funds will also be used to support the district’s virtual learning program through the purchase of more hotspots, cameras and digital software.”
Both grants are centered on prepping the Plano ISD for the surge of remote learning across the country.
