Greensboro, NC - The Board of Education in Guilford County will meet Wednesday to discuss the $30 million won from the Race to the Top grant.
The meeting is scheduled for 11:30 am in the administrative offices' board room at 712 N. Eugene St. in Greensboro.
Guilford County Schools announced December 11, 2012 that they won the $30 million grant. The school system told WFMY News 2 in December they plan to use the money to "create and stimulate student-led learning in the district's 24 middle schools." One of the goals is to cut back on textbooks and use more electronic tablets instead.
"Our students are engaged with all sorts of technology tools," Superintendent Mo Green said after winning the award in December. "And for so long, what's happened is they've come into the school house and we've taken them back a century. So now, we're going to catch them up and be with them in the 21st century."
