The purpose of this grant is to provide funding to Jones County Public Schools to support for a 1:1 technology project to provide every Jones County High School student and teacher with an individual laptop. The goal of the program is to provide Jones County students with 21st century workforce-readiness skills, but also provide increased public technology access to households in the county. Golden LEAF dollars will be utilized to fund the lease of laptops, salaries for a technology facilitator for a two year period and two technician positions for one year, ongoing professional development, and classroom technology and materials. The project is integrated into the school system’s Race to the Top plan.
