- Purchasing assistive technologies specified in a child’s Individualized Education Plan (IEP) or 504 Plan.
- Specialized educational therapy services and supports, including speech language therapy, specialized reading instruction, and other services provided by a licensed practitioner.
VDOE is offering $30 million in grants to support the educational progress and success of students. For more information and to apply, visit the K-12 Learning Acceleration Grant webpage.
