On August 1, 2012, it announced a $2 million grant to a local school district for the purchase of computers. The district can spend the funds upon receipt. On September 15, 2012, the state mailed a check for the full amount to the district. The district spent $1.5 million on computers during fiscal 2013 (i.e., the year ending August 31, 2013) and expects to spend the remaining $0.5 million in fiscal 2014.2.
