ONALASKA, WI -

Thousands of dollars are headed into the classroom in Onalaska to help with innovative projects. 

The Onalaska Education Foundation awarded nearly $14, 000 in grants Thursday night. They're going to the Onalaska School District and the private and parochial schools in the city.

This year the money will help add iPad software to a French classroom, help students who have fallen behind in reading levels, and help a music department.
