225 School Districts to get State Technology Grants

“Closing the Gap” technology grants have been awarded by the State Board of Education to 225 school districts throughout the state to support, enhance and expand the districts’ community-based technology plans.

The Closing the Gap (CTG) Initiative is entering its second year of funding for districts in the state of Illinois.

Districts must have an approved technology plan in place and provide matching funds. The specific amount of the grant is based on a formula that takes into account the wealth of a district and the number of students with the district receiving a base amount. CTG is funded under the Technology for Success Program, administered by the State Board.

Attached is a list of districts that will receive grants for the 2002-2003 school year.
