Enhancing Education Through Technology (EETT)

Funding for school technology from the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 used in classrooms to improve student academic achievement. Funds are distributed through formula and competitive grants.

The California Department of Education (CDE), Education Technology Office oversees the EETT Competitive and Formula Grant Program under Title ll, Part D, of the No Child Left Behind Act. Funds from this grant are used to assist eligible districts to utilize technology to enhance teaching and promote learning. Funds are distributed on an equal basis to the EETT Competitive and Formula programs. For more information on the EETT Competitive and Formula Grant Programs, please visit the following sites:

EETT Competitive Grants

The Enhancing Education Through Technology - Competitive (EETT-C) grant program provides funding for grades four through eight to assist eligible local educational agencies in using technology to enhance teaching and learning. EETT-C is a competitive grant process. LEAs must complete an application which is scored and ranked against other competitors. The top scoring applications will be funded.

EETT Formula Grants

The Enhancing Education Through Technology - Formula (EETT-F) grant program provides funding for grades kindergarten through twelve to assist eligible local educational agencies in using technology to enhance teaching and learning. EETT-F funding is based on an LEA’s proportionate share of Title I, Part A funds it receives to the state’s total. For example, District X received 1.255 percent (rounded to the nearest thousandths) of the state’s total Title I, Part A funds will receive 1.255 percent of the state’s total Title II, Part D funds. So, if $15 million in EETT-F funds were available statewide, then District X would be awarded $188,250 ($15 million times 1.255 percent).
