School districts in San Diego County are getting $3 million in technology grants funded by the federal stimulus, the California Department of Education announced today. The money had been held up by the state Legislature as it tried to decide how to use it. Now the funds are specifically slated for technology to monitor data on high school graduation rates and make students more ready for college or careers.

Here in San Diego County, the biggest grants went to San Diego Unified and Sweetwater Union High School District, which each got $1 million. Smaller grants went to Grossmont Union High School District, Escondido Union, Fallbrook Union Elementary, Carlsbad Unified, San Marcos Unified, the County Office of Education and the Charter School of San Diego.
