INDIANAPOLIS (Indiana Department of Education) – Two local school corporations have been awarded Digital Learning Grant money from the state’s Department of Education.

The Northeast Dubois School Corporation has been awarded a grant of $86,000 and Southwest Dubois Schools will be getting $97,000. The two local awards were part of $1.8 million that was awarded to 19 school corporations all across Indiana. 86 corporations applied for the grants that provide funding for school corporations to launch or expand existing one-to-one technology plans.

Additionally, funds from this grant support school corporations in providing professional development, creating content and resources, modernizing avenues for parent and student communication, improving infrastructure, as well as purchasing devices.

“I am excited to announce the recipients of the 2015 Digital Learning Grants,” said Glenda Ritz, Indiana’s Superintendent of Public Instruction. “The selected school corporations developed thoughtful, student-centered plans to provide 21st century learning experiences within their district. Today’s award recipients serve as models for other school corporations around the state in how to use technology in the classroom.”

Paoli schools were the only other area school corporation on the grant list. Paoli was awarded a $100,000 grant.
