Part D: Enhancing Education through Technology (Ed Tech)
The Enhancing Education through Technology State Program – also known as Ed Tech – awards grants to states and is authorized by Title II, Part D of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (also known as ESEA). The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 provides additional Ed Tech funding. In administering the Ed Tech program, VDOE supports efforts to:
- Raise student achievement through the use of technology in elementary and secondary instruction;
- Narrow and close the digital divide by ensuring that every student is technologically literate by the end of eighth grade; and
- Promote effective integration of technology, teacher training and curriculum development.
