The Digital Learning Grant (up to $75,000) supports districts ready to launch thoughtful 1:1 implementation plans. It is also open to districts that have assessed their current 1:1 implementation and are prepared to take the next steps, such as expanding grade levels or replicating successes from pilot projects. Funds from this grant support corporations in providing professional development, developing content and expectations, creating avenues for parent and student communication, as well as purchasing devices.
