The EdTech ARRA grant
uses federal stimulus dollars for the purposes of enhancing education through technology in the classroom. In applying for the $2.7 million, Iowa is prioritizing capacity-building for its schools to deliver K-12 online or blended learning.

Four Goals of Grant

1.     Professional development in online pedagogy, as well as in Iowa Core/Common Core curriculum and best practice

2.     Acquisition and/or development of high quality online content made accessible to all Iowa teachers and students through a common repository for schools to access the content and deliver online learning

3.     Research low-to-no cost option for credit and component recovery needs

4.     Address needs of learning continuity for pandemic and disaster preparedness
