The Clark County School District has applied for $83,200 in state funding to help gifted and talented students.
The district’s gifted and talented education department sent an application to the Nevada education department for the grant, which would provide the more than 6,000 “GATE” students in the district with technology to help them learn science and math concepts.
Last year’s grant money was used to purchase 34 tablet computers, life science apps and virtual microscopes. The bulk of this year’s grant funding, if awarded, also would go toward technology supplies:
• 70 tablet computers
• 70 mobile microscopes
• 70 earphones
• 70 earphone splitters
• Seven video projector adapters
The grant would be effective from September to June 2014.
