Curry School shares Gates tech grant

The Curry School of Education will share a three-year, $7.2 million grant, partially funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, to train K-12 superintendents and principals throughout Virginia on technology to improve teaching.

The Gates Foundation provided a $3.6 million challenge grant, matched by the state, which U.Va. will share with Virginia Tech, the state Department of Education and Virginia Educational Technology Alliance, a coalition of universities that focus on teacher education in a project called the Virginia Initiative for Technology and Administrative Leadership.

Zahrl G. Schoeny, associate professor in the Curry School’s leadership, foundations and policy department, will manage U.Va.’s portion of the grant.

U.Va. will work with its grant partners to take the training to all Virginia school districts during the next three years.
