Our institutions are investments that have proven their worth to our state and to generations of Idahoans throughout our history, even before statehood. The numbers bear that out and the investments must continue.
The State Board, in partnership with Idaho AEYC, received a $6 million per year, three-year federal grant to help improve Idaho’s early childhood system “with an eye toward readiness and literacy.”
I want to commend our college and university presidents, their faculties and staffs for all they have done since last March to transform their campuses and their methods of instruction.
By building on what our institutions already offer online, rather than starting from scratch, the new digital campus will improve the entire system, making higher education more accessible and affordable for more Idahoans.
