YES! The beauty of this grant is that it is for any traditional public school or charter school in the state of Georgia.
Once your school is accepted, ESE Networks will contact you to schedule a time when we can deliver the equipment. Yes, you heard right; WE deliver the equipment. We take the time to hand-deliver to each school and give an on-site training before we leave. We want to see your program succeed!
Once equipment has been delivered, you will have a basic knowledge and understanding of the hardware and software included in the 'Studio in a Box'. However, to fully utilize the equipment we will schedule a 1-on-1 training over the phone for a later date. We usually are in contact with our schools the same day we deliver equipment.
Qualified schools will receive a 'Studio in a Box' that will enable them to film and broadcast high-quality, HD video as well as access to the ESE Networks platform for two years. Access also includes 1 TB of storage space and 24/7 ESE technical support.
Minor reporting is required. Examples listed below:
Number of students in Audio/Video and/or Broadcast Journalism courses,

The Georgia AV Grant is available to all public and/or charter middle schools and high schools in the state of Georgia.
