Technology Grants Awarded to 53 Schools

Enhancing Education through Technology Competitive grants have been awarded by the State Board of Education to 53 school districts throughout the state.

The grants are made available through the No Child Left Behind federal legislation. They are targeted to assist districts with at least 40% of their students from low-income families. Applications for the grants were reviewed by an outside committee of technology coordinators, teachers, district superintendents and university professors.

Districts must have an approved technology plan in place and spend at least 25% of their grant monies on ongoing, sustained, and intensive high quality professional development.
