Doddridge and Ritchie Counties receive grant as part of a blended learning initiative

Education

Education Alliance, a statewide public education fund, announced it will provide $1.2 million in grant funding for its blended learning initiative.

The blended learning program will help teachers in seven rural West Virginia schools “blend” face-to-face instruction with online resources to provide engaging, technology-rich learning opportunities for students.

Doddridge and Ritchie counties will both receive a $15,000 Makerspace grant.

“We are looking at different labs in the elementary, middle and high school. STEAM labs, again science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics, and this is going to allow us to receive some additional funding to allow us to put our lab up at the high school,” said Adam Cheeseman, superintendent for Doddridge County schools. 

The lab will include a 3-D printer and other resources.
