QEIA Letter - District & School Interventions

Letter Head: Jack O'Connell, State Superintendent of Public Instruction, Phone number 916-319-0800

Date: March 5, 2007

Dear Selected Superintendents:

QUALITY EDUCATION INVESTMENT ACT
APPLICATION DEADLINE MARCH 30, 2007

On February 8, 2007, the California Department of Education (CDE) sent a letter to all eligible districts and chartering authorities to announce the availability of approximately $3 billion through the Quality Education Investment Act (QEIA) of 2006. This funding is available to improve the quality of academic instruction at the lowest performing schools in the state. This program provides a unique opportunity for districts and chartering authorities to apply for significant resources on behalf of eligible schools with the most critical needs.

I hope that a representative from your district was able to attend one of the QEIA information and planning sessions that were held throughout the state in February and early March of 2007. Since the level of funding available through this opportunity is unprecedented, I am strongly encouraging all eligible districts to apply.

The deadline to submit applications for this exclusive funding opportunity is March 30, 2007 at 5:00 p.m. Districts and chartering authorities applying on behalf of eligible schools must ensure that their application materials have been approved by their local educational agency board at a public meeting prior to submission to the CDE. Since this is a competitive process, late applications will be disqualified if they are not received by the due date and time.

If you have any questions regarding the application or program requirements, please contact the High Priority Schools [Note: the preceding contact name is no longer valid.] School Turnaround Office at (916) 324-3236 [Note: the preceding contact number is no longer valid.] (916) 319-0833.

Sincerely,

JACK O’CONNELL
