Boxlight Weighs in on Funding the Interactive Classroom

Money in education is tight, but there are plenty of funding opportunities available if you know where to look. Searching and applying for funds can be time-consuming, so we’ve made it a bit easier by finding some incredible opportunities that can help you receive funding while enhancing classrooms.
Check out these useful guides, which offer funding that aligns with the Boxlight Classroom family of solutions: 
  1. 21st Century Community Learning Centers, Title IV, Part B: This program supports centers that provide academic enrichment programs during non-school hours—especially for centers that target high-poverty families and students who attend low-performing schools. The program strives to provide students with academic enrichment opportunities, along with activities designed to complement the students’ regular academic program. Digital literacy tools, such as those found in the Boxlight Classroom family of products, may provide interest and motivation for these students.
  2. Title I, Part A: College and Career Readiness: This program emphasizes college and career readiness, and these funds must be used to improve reading and mathematics instruction for disadvantaged students. The purpose of this title is to ensure that all children have a fair, equal, and significant opportunity to obtain a high-quality education. Educational technology, such as the Boxlight Classroom solutions, aligns perfectly with the purpose of these funds—the money may be used to purchase technology if it helps in the delivery of curriculum, professional development, or other components for Title I students.
  3. Title I, Section 1003(g) School Improvement Grants: School Improvement Grants are given to state educational agencies and used to make competitive subgrants for local educational agencies that demonstrate the greatest need. These local agencies also have to demonstrate a strong commitment to use the funds to provide adequate resources in order to raise students’ achievement in their lowest-performing schools. Education technology solutions, such as the Boxlight Classroom family of products, aids in raising student achievement by creating a classroom environment in which students remain engaged and motivated.
  4. Charter Schools: This competition provides grants to a state’s Department of Education to plan, design, and implement new charter schools, as well as to disseminate information on successful charter schools. All components of the Boxlight Classroom suite can help ensure that students are meeting achievement and content standards, which can help a school qualify for these funds. For example, the MimioStudio classroom software offers teachers a library of content, which they can draw from to create standards-based interactive lessons that appeal to a wide range of abilities and backgrounds.
  5. Race to the Top: This program was designed to advance reform in K–12 education. It rewards states that have demonstrated success in raising student achievement and have the best plans to accelerate their reforms in the future. Race to the Top also establishes additional goals for education, including improving student achievement, closing achievement gaps, improving high school graduation rates, and ensuring post-secondary success. Boxlight Classroom products help ensure that students are meeting achievement and content standards, helping states to qualify for these funds.
