Eligibility is limited to:
- School districts, direct-funded charter schools, and county offices of education with a state-approved technology plan and recipient of Title I, Part A funding.
- Consortiums that include at least one high-need school district and other local educational agencies, institutions of higher education, educational service agencies, libraries, or other educational entities appropriate to provide local programs.
Districts not receiving funds under Part A of Title I may still be eligible for formula grant funds if they apply as part of a consortium with a district that receives funds under Part A of Title I.
LEAs filing a new or updated education technology plan must file plans through their California Technology Assistance Project (CTAP) tech plan coordinator.
25% of the EETT formula funding must be spent on professional development related to helping teachers use technology as an effective tool to improve teaching and student achievement. The balance of the funding may be spent on education technology expenses in accordance to their approved education technology plan. LEAs decide locally on the amount funding to allocate to their school site and are not required to base this allocation on the amount of Title I funding going to each school site.
