Grants & Funding

Federal Funding for your Technology Program

Title I Part A: Increasing the Academic Achievement of the Disadvantaged

The largest source of federal funding to schools is from Title I, providing over $16 billion dollars to schools that serve a high number or high percentage of children from low-income families to ensure that these children are able to meet challenging state academic standards.

IDEA Part B: Assistance for Education of All Children with Disabilities

The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) is a law ensuring services to children with disabilities throughout the nation. IDEA governs how states and public agencies provide early intervention, special education and related services to eligible infants, toddlers, children, and youth with disabilities. School districts receive over $11 million dollars to help pay for the cost of providing services and education to children with disabilities.

How eSpark Aligns to IDEA Part B Funding:

  • eSpark addresses the principles of Response to Intervention, requirements of students with special needs, and the challenges teachers face in differentiating instruction
  • eSpark provides ongoing assessment to ensure students are meeting learning goals
  • With text-to-speech functionality, videos, games, and interactive e-books, provides students with a variety of ways of practicing key math and ELA standards

The CARES (Coronavirus Aid Relief and Economic Security) Act provides federal stimulus dollars to assist local school districts during the COVID-19 pandemic. These dollars are a part of the Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief Fund (ESSERF).

How eSpark aligns to ESSER funding:

  • eSpark's adaptive, differentiated curriculum is proven to close learning gaps and can be used during school, in after school programs, and during the summer to prevent additional learning loss
  • Student progress and standards mastery reports help teachers identify learning gaps, and weekly small group suggestions provide relevant resources for targeted intervention with struggling students 
  • eSpark integrates Social Emotional Learning (SEL) to allow students to express how they are feeling and give teachers important insights into their students' wellbeing
