SchoolMessenger is offering a fully-funded technology implementation to foster parent involvement, increase attendance, and improve student achievement. Two applicants will be selected to receive a SchoolMessenger Desktop Calling System with one year of upgrades and support (a value totaling up to $5,000). In addition to the fully-funded grants, 10 partial assistance matching grants will be awarded (total value up to $2,500 per award). Applicants outlining proactive plans to improve parent involvement will be given special consideration. An emphasis will also be placed on schools that are historically below district, county, or state averages in the areas of student attendance and test performance.
