School Technology Budgets: Maximize Your Investment and Attain Additional Funding

Today's teachers and administrators are under the tremendous pressure for student improvement in academic achievement results. This pressure, combined with recent reductions in most school budgets, requires that schools become more analytic and informed as consumers and investors in technology resources. Changes in the federal, state and private funding landscape have reduced funds, put more restrictions on them, and made them harder to obtain and use. Are you prepared to maximize your technology investment? In this OnDemand Webinar, you will walk through the elements of a funding plan for educational technology, review available sources of funding, build the outline of a funding response kit that streamlines your response to funding opportunities, and put together a checklist of steps to take to be ready for upcoming changes in funding.

You can be ahead of the curve, maximize your technology investment, and get more funding for technology by having a technology plan that addresses funding. Funding Favors the Prepared!
