South Fayette School District has been awarded two grants, totaling more than $118,000, for innovative student programs.

A grant of more than $103,000 from The Grable Foundation of Pittsburgh will help complete a K-12 program involving STEAM subjects -- science, technology, engineering, art and math -- that can be shared with other school districts, technology director Aileen Owens said at a meeting Tuesday night.

A $15,000 grant from The Sprout Fund of Pittsburgh will help establish an environmental science curriculum for grades K-4 that includes growing gardens.

"Getting the grant is the first step, but now the real work begins," Superintendent Bille Rondinelli said.
