Classroom innovation, technology grants available for schools



Details were recently released about a pair of new grant opportunities funded by the 2013 Legislature.

House Bill 1164 included a one-time appropriation of $500,000 to provide classroom innovation grants to public school teachers, public school districts, and Education Service Agencies. The purpose of the grant is to provide funding for teachers to utilize technology in innovative ways, in order to enhance student learning. The maximum grant amount is $25,000. Applications are being accepted until July 8.

A second grant is available to public school districts. Under House Bill 1185, a district may apply for a grant of up to $20,000 to upgrade its technology infrastructure. The legislature provided $500,000 for these grants. Applications are being accepted until June 15.
