Piru Elementary School Awarded Apple and ConnectED Grant

The Fillmore Unified School District is pleased to announce that Piru Elementary School has been selected to receive an Apple grant as part of the ConnectED program. The award will enable Piru Elementary School to provide a comprehensive 1:1 technology solution for every student and teacher, including Apple hardware, software, and services.

By providing students, teachers, and administrators with Apple technology, Piru Elementary will be able to enrich its classroom experience and expand opportunities for its students.

Superintendent, Dr. Adrian Palazuelos shared, “Our Board of Trustees and the district community are overjoyed that Piru Elementary School was selected as one of the recipients of the Apple ConnectED program. The new hardware and companion professional learning on integrating technology into our classrooms will enhance teaching and learning in our school community. ”

Piru students will now have an opportunity to work with the latest technology to help bridge gaps that exist due to economic and language barriers. This will benefit our students and community allowing us to narrow the digital divide and provide much needed opportunities required to compete within our global society.
