The Division of School and District Effectiveness at the Georgia Department of Education provided an opportunity for districts to compete for a one time grant to support state- identified Comprehensive Support and Improvement (CSI), digital learning resources.
The DeKalb County School District has been awarded $3,836, 800 from the Georgia Department of Education’s Digital Learning Grant to assist 25 schools in the county. Based on the technology needs survey and evidence-based research, the identified schools will receive grant funds to purchase devices for students in grades Pre-K- 5, Wi-Fi hotspots, and instructional software programs along with professional development. The grant-funded hardware will provide a supplemental quantity of digital devices for all grade levels.
Due to the COVID-19 school closures, districts have shifted to digital learning to ensure the safety of students and staff.
