InterceptEFT® donates $100,000 toward advancing technology at Oak Grove

InterceptEFT of Fargo has donated $100,000 to Oak Grove Lutheran School to assist the school with technology needs. Oak Grove parents and co-owners of InterceptEFT, Mr. Bryan Smith and Mr. Craig Dresser, have committed the gift to advance technology and prepare the school for the future. This generous gift will move Oak Grove to be state-of-the-art in terms of technology integration in the classroom.

Oak Grove is moving forward with a strategic plan for continued academic excellence and up-to-date offerings for students and staff. Oak Grove is addressing technology needs at the north and south campus this summer, which include infrastructure, back-up and security issues, inter-campus connectivity and wireless networking. The technology needed for wireless accessibility will be installed at the north campus, with the hope of the school starting a laptop program in the future. This gift will also provide laptops and projectors to some teachers to assist them with technology integration into the classroom.

Oak Grove is also planning a new technology center on campus, to be developed in the summer of 2007. The space will be named the InterceptEFT Technology and Media Center.
