Congratulations to technology grant winners

Congratulations are in order for seven school districts:

Seven South Carolina school districts are sharing $1.3 million in federal technology grants.

The state education department's Office of eLearning said Tuesday the seven winners are receiving between $120,000 and $240,000 each.

The districts are Bamberg 1, Colleton County, Dillon 3, Dillon 4, Horry County, Lexington 2, and Marion 7.

The grants are part of the Enhancing Education Through Technology program. Its goals include increasing student achievement through technology and ensuring students are technologically literate by high school.

The U.S. Department of Education distributes the money.

The state agency says it picked the winners from among more than 40 applications
