Clark County School District seeks state grant for online testing

Students soon will have to take state-required tests online instead of on paper. That will cost money, so the Clark County School District is applying for $3.35 million from a state educational technology fund to make that happen over the next two years. Clark County School Board members unanimously agreed Thursday to send the application to the Nevada Department of Education seeking the financial aid.

About $1.95 million of the funds would be used to buy eight large servers with the second-largest expense being $757,000 for the salaries of three full-time teachers and extra pay for teachers involved with the task force implementing the changed tests. Technical support will cost $399,000.
