Area 30 Applies for DOE Rural Grant

During the Area 30 School Board’s monthly regular session the board has decided to submit an application for the Department of Education Rural Grant. This grant is primarily used to provide financial assistance to rural districts to assist them in meeting their state’s definition of adequate yearly progress. The funds can be used for teacher recruitment and retention, teacher development, support for educational technology, parental involvement activities, and student activities. Area 30 is planning to use the funds to train teachers in computer programming, buy new PCs, and fund classes and programs.
