The Educational Technology Council with funding from the 2015 North Dakota Legislature provided Build Grants to schools. Jody French, ND ETC Director stated, “I am pleased to award this funding for the many projects which improve student learning.” The Build Grant Program provides funding to improve wireless infrastructure, increase student access to internet connected devices and/or expand instructional coaching for educators. Schools provide a 50% match to the awarded funds.
