The Texas Education Agency announced recently that Paris Independent School District and 147 other Texas school districts and charter schools were awarded a 2018-19 Technology Lending grant.

The Technology Lending grant program provides school systems funds to purchase technology devices that are loaned to students for access to digital instructional materials off campus. The grant provides personal student learning devices and Internet access for students who would not otherwise have access to digital instructional materials off campus. Thus, it seeks to ensure equitable access to quality digital resources and courses.

The $100,000 grant will enable Paris High School to purchase Chromebooks and wireless Internet access devises to loan to students. These will be in addition to the Chromebooks available for student checkout that was purchased with the 2014-2016 Technology Lending Grant.
