Kirbyville CISD has been awarded two major technology grants for the 2018-2019 school year. These grants are the T-Mobile EmpowerEd grant program and the TEA Tech Lending Grant.
KCISD has been planning and preparing to begin a 1:1 (one to one) program (1 device per student) starting with one grade level and adding one or two grade levels each year over a 5 year period. As with any large initiative, funding has been the largest hurdle. Well with the award of these two grants, the 1:1 plan has changed, and changed big. These two grants combined will provide a Chromebook for every student in grades 4 through 12 beginning with the 2018-2019 school year!
We are finalizing the grant details, procedures, and policies over this summer to be ready to get the program started when school begins in August. Please keep checking our website throughout the summer as we will advertise more details about the program as we move closer to the start of the 2018-2019 school year.
