Schools have ‘til Friday to apply for tech grants, 10 have so far

Idaho’s state Department of Education has received 10 applications so far for the $3 million in technology pilot project grants it’ll be handing out in the coming year; schools have until Friday to submit applications. “I know there’s been a lot of interest,” said Luci Willits, chief of staff to state schools Superintendent Tom Luna. “We’ve done several webinars, and it was one of the main topics on the post-legislative tour.”

Willits had no information on what’s proposed in the applications received so far; they won’t be evaluated until after the deadline, she said. Decisions on the grant awards are expected to be made soon after the start of the fiscal year July 1, and prior to the start of the next school year.
