From Here to Technology. How To Fund Hardware, Software, and More.
Hunter, Barbara M.
Faced with shrinking state and local tax support and an increased demand for K-12 educational reform, school leaders must use creative means to find money to improve and deliver instruction and services to their schools. This handbook describes innovative strategies that school leaders have used to find scarce dollars for purchasing educational technology. Educational technology includes computer hardware, software, video, and telecommunications equipment. Five chapters provide suggestions for: (1) stretching budget dollars and reallocating funds; (2) gathering new dollars from the community and state; (3) working with business and other organizations; (4) raising funds in schools and districts; and (5) exploring grants. Sections in each chapter detail the benefits and obstacles of each strategy. Examples of strategies in action and contact information on the educators who used them are included. (LMI)
