In 2014, KVEC received a four-year Race to the Top grant that’s being use to increase opportunities for students and develop blended learning initiatives across the group’s 19 public scho
ol districts. “All of our districts have been moving toward using technology more effectively, and especially in using technology in a personalized and concentrated manner,” says Hawkins. So far, the grant has been used to place “innovation coordinators” in every district (the grant doesn’t pay the coordinator’s salary, the district does), purchase equipment (like 70-inch, interactive Mondopads), rollout software (like the career and workplace skills program WIN Math), and support one-to-one initiatives.
