GENEVA – The Geneva District 304 school board voted Monday to accept a gift of $1,466.38 from the Geneva Middle School South PTO.

Because the gift was for more than $500, the school board had to vote to accept it, as per policy.

The PTO donated each language arts and social studies teacher with $100 for support of a classroom library.

Of that, $1,266.38 went to the language arts classroom libraries and $200 went to social studies libraries, officials said.

The board also approved a request from Scott Ney, director of facility operations, to submit an application for the Illinois State Board of Education School Maintenance Project Grant It can provide up to $50,000 in a matching grant for maintenance or upkeep of buildings used for educational purposes, according to a memo from Ney..

The grant can be awarded to any school district under one of five priority levels. These are emergency project, health, life and safety, state priory, permanent improvement or other projects, according Ney's memo.
