SETDA Applauds Congress’s Decision to Increase ESSA-TITLE IV Funding

US Capitol Building

State Educational Technology Directors Association (SETDA) Executive Director Tracy Weeks today issued the following statement praising Congress for increasing funding for ESSA-Title IV, the Student Support and Academic Enrichment Grant (SSAEG) program, in the fiscal year 2018 omnibus spending bill:

“SETDA applauds Congress’s recognition that SSAEG funding needs to increase to help States and districts serve their students, including by investing in digital learning initiatives. More STEM, Computer Science, open educational resources and other digital initiatives will thrive with this additional support. Ensuring all students graduate ready for later academic, workplace, and life success demands equal access to the advantages technology conveys for teaching and learning. We are thrilled by Congress’s increased commitment to this vital program’s investment in ed tech.”
