On this page...
Technology can be used to enhance teaching and learning. The principal goal of this program, funded by Title II Part D dollars, is to improve student academic achievement through the use of technology in elementary and secondary schools. It is also designed to assist students in becoming technologically literate by the end of the eighth grade and encourage the effective integration of technology with professional development. The program targets funds primarily to school districts that are high poverty and have low-performing schools or schools requiring assistance in acquiring and using technology.
