The Learning Technology Grant (LTG) Program provides funds to improve student academic performance in relation to the New York State learning standards (including the New York State P-12 Common Core Learning Standards for English Language Arts & Literacy and for Mathematics.
The Program is designed to enable collaborative partnerships of public and nonpublic schools to address the implementation of New York State learning standards through the use of technology. LTGs provide funds for acquisition of both technology and staff development that will facilitate student learning. As the effectiveness of educational technology depends upon adequate training in its use, expenditures for staff development must amount to at least 45 percent of the program budget and no more than 45 percent of the budget may be spent on hardware.
