Extron Electronics is pleased to announce it has so far granted over $1.8 million in classroom A/V systems to U.S. school districts. Over 580 pilot classrooms have been granted to enable district technology leaders, administrators, and instructors to evaluate and define audiovisual system standards that can be implemented in additional classrooms. The main goal of the Extron grant program is to provide increased visibility and expanded access for K-12 classroom A/V technology by supplying selected pilot classrooms with advanced audio/video solutions at no cost to the district. Each grant award includes installation of Extron classroom A/V system technology, VoiceLift® microphone, and complete training.

“Our grant programs allow educators and students to experience education technology that will boost students’ interest and achievement in the classroom, as well as help prepare them for the workplace,” says Anthony Cortes, Director of K-12 Education Programs for Extron Electronics. “Designed specifically to meet the needs of K-12 classrooms, Extron PoleVault®, WallVault™, and VoiceLift® Systems help schools standardize on a single technology platform and offer network connectivity for remote management and support.”
