It was announced Friday by Connecticut’s Department of Education Commissioner that Griswold Public Schools will receive $41,558 from the State Bond Commission, for technology grants which will enable the school district to place more computers in the classrooms. This is a portion of the $10.9 million awarded to 171 school districts throughout the state.
The purpose of the grants will be to give the students the opportunity to thrive in school and have the skills and knowledge to succeed in the high-tech world they will enter after high school and college. More computers in the classroom will empower more students to have the skills they need to be successful global citizens.
The grants will also increase the Internet bandwidth in schools across the state.
The investment is part of the state’s broad efforts to strengthen computer and technology resources as schools continue to implement Connecticut Core Standards and administer computer-adaptive tests aligned to these standards.
