Vermont Lottery and Agency of Education Partner for Fourth Round of Tech Grants
BARRE – The Vermont Lottery, in partnership with the Vermont Agency of Education, today announced the fourth round in the now twice annual computer program to provide a competitive grant to K-12 public schools in the form of a cart of computing devices. The program will provide one set of 20 devices and a mobile cart to one awardee school. The devices will consist of either Apple iPads, or Google Chromebooks, (choice made by the school) and the devices will become the property of the school.
The criteria is to follow guidelines in the application process to create or support an innovative program or project at a local school with the addition of the 20 devices to a school’s technology program. The program targets schools that are highly rural and have a significant population of qualified students in the Free and Reduced lunch program.
The goals of the program are twofold, to build public awareness on how the Lottery supports education, and to aid schools by providing technology that can support student learning. The Vermont Lottery is allocating marketing funds to support the Educate/Innovate Grant program.
