JCPS school receives $50,000 technology grant

Posted: Updated:
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) - A JCPS school is getting nearly $50,000 to buy something it's sorely lacking - technology.

The Jimmie Johnson Foundation, named after the NASCAR superstar, along with Lowe's and Samsung have chosen Olmsted Academy North to get this year's $48,000 "Team Up for Technology" grant.

Olmsted was chosen from more than 1,200 schools.

Teachers say students often don't have access to computers outside the classroom and that computers inside the school often don't work.

The money will buy laptops and desktop computers, along with other items.
