On December 16, the California Department of Education (CDE) posted the Request for Applications (RFA) for $5.5 million in new Enhancing Education Through Technology (EETT) Competitive grants. The maximum district grant under this program is approximately $300,000. Schools previously funded through the ARRA or No Child Left Behind EETT Competitive process ARE ELIGIBLE to apply for Round 9 EETT-C funds.
An eligible applicant who submitted an application for the ARRA EETT-C program in October of 2009 may choose to substitute the score from that application for use in Round 9 of the EETT-C. However, districts will not be notified what those scores were. The scores from the October 2009 ARRA EETT C applications and the scores from new Round 9 applicants will be merged for ranking and awarding purposes. LEAs opting to use their October 2009 ARRA EETT C score are only required to submit Form 1- Application Title Page. If the LEA is awarded a Round 9 EETT-C grant, the LEA will be required to revise their goals, timelines and budget forms to reflect the revised award amount.
The RFA is available on the CDE Web site at http://www.cde.ca.gov/fg/fo/r5/eettc10rfa.asp. The RFA details the funding structure, funding priorities, and programmatic requirements of the EETT Competitive grant program.
The application must be received by the CDE no later than 5 p.m. on February 1, 2011.
