Global Grid for Learning has awarded 85 schools with edtech grants aimed to improve the safety and culture in schools

(Minneapolis, MN) March 6, 2019 — GreyED Solutions announced today that it has been included in the Global Grid for Learning (GG4L) Safer Schools in America Impact Grant. GreyED’s FilterED, a cloud-based solution that offers state, district and school leaders a comprehensive view of their technology landscape, is part of the estimated $9 million in philanthropically funded edtech grants awarded to 85 schools from 54 U.S. school districts across 15 states in Phase I of the grant program.

The Safer Schools in America Impact Grant Program will support the implementation and usage of select edtech products from leading education providers who are focused on K–12 school safety solutions. These solutions will be implemented and studied for a period of three years at no cost to the school grant recipients. The grants will also address an industry-wide need to capture data-driven validation research on a significant range of activities believed to foster safer teaching and learning environments. These include emotional, physical, and digital safety, as well as emergency preparedness, school facilities, culture, and community engagement.

“We are excited to have GreyED as part of our expanding ecosystem and pleased to offer their solution as part of the Safer Schools in America Grant,” said GG4L Founder and CEO Robert Iskander. “FilterED ties perfectly into what we are trying to accomplish with this grant. It aligns with healthy culture, digital safety, and engaged community—three of the seven areas that foster the Student Support and Academic Enrichment framework for school safety.”
