Use technology to advance student achievement
As a block grant, Title IV-A (Student Support and Academic Enrichment) features a level of flexibility that enables educators to tailor investments based on the needs of their unique student populations. The grant may be used for student health and safety, on activities that provide a more well-rounded education, and for technology. Districts which receive less than $30,000 are allowed to spend the funds in only one of these three areas (for example, technology), while recipients of larger amounts must use at least 20% for health and safety and 20% for activities promoting a well-rounded education. Whether the size of your district’s grant enables you to use all your Title IV-A funds for technology or allocate a portion of a larger grant, there is no longer a cap on the amount that can be spent on technology.
