Staff from the Burleson ISD identified situations where standing desks would help in certain learning situations. The school needed 30 stations and was selected by VariDesk in a special pilot program that provided 20 stations at no charge. The remaining 10 stations cost $250 per desk, $250 per seat and $95 per rocker for a total of $5950.00.
The Bureson-Area Midday Club will purchase the additional 10 units and members will help assemble the units at the school. Approximately 6-10 Rotarians are expected to participate directly in the project. The Club will provide $2975.00 and is asking the District to match the $2975.00.
We would expect to complete the project within 30 days of grant approval.
Addendum to Project Description (added after the project was signed)
Once district notified the club of only a $1500 match, the club board agreed to keep club amount at $3400 for a total grant of $4900. The school will raise the balance of funds to complete the purchase.
