Increasing Student Achievement with Digital
In the FY09 Title IID Competitive
Grant, mathematics teachers and students in the
competitive grant will use technology tools and
digital learning resources that enable formative
assessment to inform differentiation of both
teaching and learning, resulting in increased
student achievement in 6th, 7th, 8th and 9th grades.
Engaging AP Students Through Mobile Handheld
The primary goal of this program
is to improve student academic achievement through
the use of technology. More specifically, goals are
to improve the quality of Advanced Placement (AP)
programs as measured by AP exam scores; to increase
enrollments in AP classes statewide; and to increase
the diversity of students who choose to enroll in AP
courses to more accurately reflect the demographics
of the school as a whole.
21st Century Science, Technology, Engineering,
and Mathematics (STEM) Labs:
The GaDOE has established a FY10
Title II, Part D 21st Century STEM Lab Competitive
Grant with the goal of seeding sustained statewide
emphasis on STEM education. This investment involves
expanding the impact of Georgia’s 21st Century STEM
education initiatives on the K-12 level –
specifically through the creation of 26 STEM Labs in
middle and high schools and the formation of 21st
Century STEM Lab Governance Boards for each grant
school that will partner with post-secondary
institutions, STEM research and demonstration sites,
community, and business.
The FY10 Title II, Part D ARRA
Competitive Grant for eTextbooks is designed to
investigate the necessary resources, implementation
strategies, level of teacher professional
development, academic impact, and potential cost
savings involved in creating a self-funding model
replacing traditional textbooks with eTextbooks.
This grant is also designed to identify effective
eTextbook materials and providers. Through the FY10
Title II, Part D ARRA eTextbook grant, five high
schools will be provided with netbooks and digital
textbook materials for all students and teachers.
CSRA ETC supports Title IID Competitive Grants by
providing consultative services as systems apply for the
grants and technical/instructional services once the
grant is awarded.
