SIATech Little Rock Wins eResources Digital Portal Grant

SIATech Little Rock is pleased to announce it was awarded an eResources Digital Learning Grant from the Arkansas Public School Resource Center. Along with 32 school districts, SIATech Little Rock will receive funds to provide digital coursework to students.

The eResources Digital Learning Grant covers the cost of several additional course options for students. This grant opportunity is available through a partnership with the Walton Family Foundation. SIATech was required to complete an application and implementation plan in its request for the grant money.

Chosen schools and districts were selected through a rigorous grants process which evaluated each application. “We were impressed with the quality of the grant applications we saw,” said APSRC Executive Director Scott Smith.

SIATech Little Rock Principal Katie Tatum is thrilled by what the award will mean for students. “This grant allows SIATech Little Rock more flexibility with course offerings. It also allows me to offer students elective classes for which we don’t currently have a high-quality teacher. This grant will open many doors academically for our school.”

Schools and districts chosen to receive the grant will be required to participate and present in a “Best Practices” Conference hosted by APSRC in order to share their successes and allow other districts the opportunity to learn from them.

SIATech Little Rock looks forward to sharing their best practices and experiences using the resources as a dropout recovery charter high school.
