On Monday, Oct. 28 IHT will host an online webinar on how educators can successfully access district Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) funding to purchase heart rate monitors and assessment software designed for education.
The webinar will feature Helen Wagner, the Coordinator for PE and Wellness at Humble (Texas) Independent School District and IHT President Jen Ohlson. IHT Regional Vice President Eric Larson, former PE Coordinator at Denver (Colo.) Public Schools, will lead the conversation.
Wagner will discuss how she applied for and received funding from Humble’s ESSA Title IV, Part A allocation to purchase IHT ZONE wrist heart rate monitors and Spirit Assessment Measures software. Humble is introducing the technology to students at five campuses — two elementary, two middle and one high school — with plans to expand in the near future.
Humble joins a growing list of school districts nationally that have successfully utilized ESSA funding to purchase IHT heart rate technology. After researching different ways to improve her district’s curriculum, Wagner chose to move forward with IHT.
“I talk about things on the horizon, how I would grow our PE program by going beyond what people think of as a traditional PE class,” Wagner said. “I really felt like IHT, and I did all of the research on lots of products, helps visualize things for the students.”
During the webinar, Wagner will detail how she worked with Humble ISD’s department of state and federal programs to create her proposal, respond to questions and ultimately see her request granted.
The webinar begins at 6 p.m. Central Daylight Time on Monday. To register, click here.
