New computers and other technology-based teaching aids are on the way to Winters High School, Winters Middle School and Wolfskill Continuation High School, thanks to a $353,720 grant from the Yocha Dehe Community Fund.
The Community Fund is the philanthropic wing of the Yocha Dehe Wintun Nation, owners of the Cache Creek Casino Resort in Yolo County’s Capay Valley. The Community Fund is dedicated to supporting education, health and wellness, native rights and tribal sovereignty, stewardship of the natural environment, native arts and culture and programs that help people help themselves.
The new grant builds on an initial $239,720 grant awarded to the Winters Combined PTA by the Community Fund in November 2011.
The two technology grants and a third grant written for the Wolfskill gardening program total more than $600,000 of investment in the Winters public schools by the Yocha Dehe Community Fund.
The Winters Education Foundation continues to reach out to the Winters community with its add-a-dollar campaign and other fundraising activities and is partnering with the city of Winters, the Winters Joint Unified School District and the Solano Community College District as plans are developed for expanded college facilities in Winters.
