Atomic Learning Enhances Teacher Professional Development at Charlotte-Mecklenburg

Earlier this week, the instructional technology department at Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools (CMS) facilitated a technology seminar for the teachers in the district.  This seminar was funded through the Enhancing Education Through Technology (EETT) grant, and was intended to help teachers understand how they can improve student achievement through the use of technology in their schools.

Funding Advisory: Title 1 and IDEA

As an education partner, Atomic Learning tracks the issues important to educators. Recently, we've heard from reliable sources that congress is considering pushing districts to use or lose ARRA funding, including Title 1 and IDEA dollars.

Though no one can say how quickly Congress will act, it is likely that the Edu Jobs Bill, which the funds may be reallocated to, will be passed well before the end of the summer session, which recesses August 9th.

To ensure that your funding is not lost, you must act now.
