Take Action to Support Ed Tech Funding TODAY!

ISTE needs your help to get full federal funding for ed tech! Here is an update on how you can help them achieve this goal TODAY:

Please join ISTE  today, October 26th, for a national Day of Action to urge Congress to fully fund the Title IV, Part A block grant.

This grant, authorized at $1.65 billion as part of the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), is in danger of being funded at significantly lower levels by both the House and Senate.

In order to keep the pressure on Congress to fully fund the block grant, ISTE has joined forces with over 100 hundred organizations to form the Title IV, Part A Coalition, a united voice in urging Congress to provide maximum funding for the program. 

Here's what to do:
·         Send a prewritten letter to Congress here
·         Tweet using the hashtag #MoreTitleIV. Sample Tweets can be found here
·         Call your senators and representatives with help from the Find Your Representative tool. A sample script can be found here.

Take action along with thousands of educators today to support digital age learning and teaching!
