2012 Instructional Tech Bond
In November 2012, Denver voters generously approved the district's historic bond initiatives of $466 million. Denver schools will soon have the opportunity to use a portion ($10 million) of these funds to invest in 21st century classroom learning technology.
ETLS is consulting with schools on their use of this money to outfit classrooms with technology and to prepare schools for the coming online PARCC assessments. ETLS staff will be meeting with schools to develop technology plans that align to their instructional goals. Then ETLS will be ordering equipment and assisting schools with the implementation of this equipment in the school.
