Funding for eLearning
Online learning with Class.com is an effective, research-driven strategy to improve the academic achievement of at-risk students, adult learners, special education students, migrant students, charter school students, and many more student groups. As such, Class.com's online learning solutions can be purchased with funding from a wide variety of U.S. Department of Education programs and nonprofit foundations
Online learning can be funded by two major types of federal government grants. Discretionary grants from the U.S. Department of Education are awarded to organizations, agencies, and individuals through a competitive process. This type of funding is vast and varied. Consult www.ed.gov for a list of open and forecasted grant competitions.
Funding for formula grants is allocated directly to states by Congress. There is no application process and state departments of education administer the funding according to federal regulations. Consult your school administration and your state's Department of Education for detailed information.
