Continuing efforts to make technological resources available to all students, the Harlingen Consolidated Independent School District was recently awarded the Technology Lending Program (TLP) Grant, a competitive grant awarded by the Texas Education Agency.
The TLP grant provides funds to start a technology-lending program on campuses so students may access and checkout digital devices for instructional purposes. The $100,000 of obtained funds will be utilized for the purchase of 171 iPad Airs for Harlingen High School and Harlingen High School South.
Once available at the campuses, the iPad Airs will be available to HHS and HHSS students to checkout. Through these devices students may access online curriculum, conduct research and complete classroom and homework.
The district was able to obtain a total of $100,000 with the assistance of Linda Alaniz, President of Educational Research Institute.
