SILVER SPRING, MD – The Education Market Association (EDmarket) is pleased to announce that 118 purchasing officials from 16 university and community colleges and 102 school districts with a total of just over $13 billion in planned renovation and construction were approved for 2015 Educational Facility Improvement Grants.
The grants assist with housing expenses and conference registration for the EDspaces Conference & Expo, October 28–30 in New Orleans, LA. School and college facility planners, superintendents and business/purchasing officials come to EDspaces to help make effective decisions for their upcoming facility construction or renovation project and to take part in the discussion about how facilities impact learning.
Winners for this year include buyers from many of the major school systems including: Houston Independent School District (TX), Wake County Public Schools (NC), Orange County Public Schools (FL), Prince William County Schools (VA), Chicago Public School District (IL), and Howard County Public School System (MD), just to name a few.
