Classwork Displays Help Cortez Residents Engage With the Schools

  • Local Champion: Montezuma-Cortez School District RE-1
  • Date Funded: June 12, 2022
  • Grant Amount: $4,015

Some Cortez residents feel a lack of transparency about local education—a problem for folks who want to understand more about school curriculum. To address this issue, the school district created two displays showcasing student artwork and other projects, hoping the displays would better connect residents to the schools. One display is permanently located at the Cortez Municipal Airport, while the other is a mobile display that travels to Cortez-area businesses. The LOR Foundation helped the school district by providing funding to purchase materials necessary for creating and installing the display boards.
