Michael Surran

The South Carolina Department of Education has announced that Horry is one of seven counties that are receiving between $120,000 and $240,000 each to promote early technology literacy. 

The funds are distributed from an ongoing federal program called Enhancing Education through Technology State Program and was born from the No Child Left Behind Act . The primary goal of this program is to improve student achievement through the use of technology in elementary and secondary schools. Additional goals include helping all students become technologically literate by the end of the eighth grade and, through the integration of technology with both teacher training and curriculum development, establishing innovative, research-based instructional methods that can be widely implemented.
