STEM, CMA and Library representatives at Shepard Middle School submitted a grant request to purchase a drone to be used by STEM and CMA students at Shepard. Shepard Principal John Filippi explained that the school has a drone, but it is very entry level and has broken a couple of times. The requested model is one that is used widely among other local schools. The Board hopes that this is a pilot and Caruso or other schools make a similar request. DEF approved the purchase of a drone and battery pack for up to $1,000.
