One hundred Clark County School District educators were selected to receive a grant to upgrade their technology as they teach students from home, thanks to a partnership between Cox and the Vegas Golden Knights Foundation.
Cox provided its highest-speed internet product, Gibablast, for free through the remainder of the 2020-21 school year (expiring June 30, 2021) to each Teacher Education Grant recipient and the Vegas Golden Knights Foundation (VGKF) has provided each with a $250 gift card to help with technology and education tools to support those teaching from home. The combined value of the 100 grants is nearly $143,000.
All eligible CCSD teachers received the grant application directly via the CCSD Partnership Program in early September and an application link was also provided at vegasgoldenknights.com.
