New SMART Interactive Panels will be installed in many EES, WES and CCPS classrooms beginning January 22nd. This will continue our recent effort to transition from our aging SMART Interactive Whiteboards, many of which are nearing end of life, to a new interactive panel format. Acquisition of these new interactive panels is possible, in part, by the Appalachian Regional Commission (ARC) Grant.
The ARC awards grants from funds appropriated to the Commission annually by Congress. Program grants are awarded to state and local agencies and governmental entities (such as economic development authorities), local governing boards (such as county councils), and nonprofit organizations (such as schools and organizations that build low-cost housing). These grants are specifically for the Appalachian Region.
