Classwork Displays Help Cortez Residents Engage With the Schools

A $4,015 grant to Montezuma-Cortez School District RE-1 on June 12, 2022

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.
