ALB Cyber Campus Receives $80,000 Grant

Kannapolis City Schools is excited to share that we received recent notification that we are recipients of a generous grant from The Cannon Foundation!  We are grateful to The Cannon Foundation for their commitment and dedication to our school district and community.  The grant, totaling $80,000, will be used to significantly upgrade our Cyber Campus at A. L. Brown High School.  We are committed to effectively using the upgrades to improve learning experiences for our students in KCS and sharing these opportunities with Cabarrus County Schools.  These renovations will ensure the Cyber Campus remains an innovative center of enrichment activities and virtual learning, serving multiple schools and grade levels in our area.

A.L. Brown principal Angelo Dellisanti shared, “This is a tremendous opportunity for our students. Just as the original iteration of the Cyber Campus brought about cutting-edge ways for students to communicate and collaborate with one another, this new era will connect them with students, people, and resources from across the state. This is an exciting time in the history of A. L. Brown and we are fortunate to share this moment with The Cannon Foundation.”

“Kannapolis City Schools is so grateful to The Cannon Foundation for their continued support”, KCS Superintendent, Dr. Chip Buckwell said. “They have always been a great partner to further improve experiences for our students.  The Cyber Campus is one of a few school-based Cyber Campuses in North Carolina.  This upgrade will allow students to access cutting-edge technology and instruction and share their experiences with the world.”  

Again, we are appreciative of The Cannon Foundation’s investment in education and we look forward to sharing information about the transformed space soon!
