GISD Receives $100,000 Technology Grant

Technology Lending Program Grant (TLPG) Awarded to GISD

GISD received $100,000 from the TLPG for iPads to be used at Greenville Middle School. The 82nd Texas Legislature in Senate Bill 6, Section 32.201, established a program to fund district technology lending program grants. The grant program was created to award funds to school districts and open-enrollment charter schools to implement or enhance an existing technology lending program to loan students the equipment necessary to access and use electronic instructional materials. The goal of the program is to ensure that all students, including economically disadvantaged students, have dedicated access to a personal technology device.

The Greenville High School iPad initiative, distributing 1200 iPads to all GHS students and staff, began this week. The initiative is partly and generously sponsored by Alliance Bank.
