LEGO Education Grant Services

Post by Admin on Wed Feb 10, 2010 4:32 pm

From LEGO Education:

Funding Through Disaster

The effects of the economy and the deluge administered by tsunamis, mudslides, and earthquakes have caused several grant sources to change their programs, indicating they may decrease the number of grants or curtail the amounts offered. The budget deficits in New York and California and the anguish voiced by many other state entities indicate a stiff challenge for education in acquiring the additional funds to continue their desired technological progress.

However, some avenues, as a result of the Title I School Improvement Grants, have the objective to turn around the nation's lowest-performing schools. These monies must be spent over the next three years unless schools receive a waiver. Districts identify the turnaround schools and choose one of the four models available: turnaround, restart, school closure, and transformation. Funds will be distributed competitively to school districts based on the Title I formulas. Learn more at

In addition, many in the private grant sector are eager to assist schools that need to turn around or those that are advancing into this growing educational maelstrom. The grant sources include:
