K-12 STEM+ Grants:
Eligibility: disadvantaged (at least 35% of students on free/reduced cost lunch) K-12 school districts/schools/charter schools. NEF provides 100% grant for top-rated (by the U.S. Education Department) Web-based online courses, and 90% grant for Solution Site license. Thus, for a 10% nominal fee of only $120 per student, per year, per subject, NEF provides Total Solution services (ISLMMTT) including Individualized learning, Stipends for the academy director and teachers, Learning Management System, Mentoring, Motivational rewards for students and parents, Teacher Training and Tech Support. A good portion of the $120 goes back to the schools for the targeted services above. On the average, a student can advance a grade level in math or reading in 20-30 learning hours on our CyberLearning Total Solution system. Compare this to $1,500 – $2,000 per student per year schools spend on Federal Title I/SES programs with much less success. You can use Title I or other sources to pay the $120.
