Rayne Central Receives Education Grant

CENTRAL RECEIVES GRANT - Central Rayne Kindergarten was recently awarded the Innovation in Education Grant which allowed for the purchase of an Active Table.

The grant was written by Christy Higginbotham, principal, and Adrienne LeJeune, classroom teacher, and totaled $3,500. The Active Table has a 46-inch full HD LCD display which allows up to six learners to simultaneously use individual tools, web browsers and resources as their personal efforts move the group toward accomplishing a common goal. ActivTable activities are aligned to common core standards and provides for differentiated instruction.
