EETT Formula Grant Information

Federal Legislation / Program Regulations / CFDA Reference

Primary Goal

Enhancing Education Through Technology (EETT) is a federal program whose primary goal is to improve student academic achievement through the use of technology in elementary and secondary schools. Other goals are to help all students become technologically literate by the end of the eighth grade and to integrate technology with teacher training and curriculum development to establish research-based instructional methods that can be widely implemented.

Eligibility

Local Educational Agency's (LEAs) are eligible for EETT Formula if they received funds under Part A of Title I. The amount of formula funding is based on the LEAs proportionate share of funds it receives under Part A of Title I to the statewide totals. No application is necessary. If the LEA has an approved technology plan, the CDE will automatically send the grant award (AO-400) to all eligible LEAs by the end of each year.

Education Technology Plans

As a condition to receiving any technology grants administered by the CDE, the LEA must have a current three to five year education technology plan approved by the CDE. For information on education technology plans, see the Education Technology Plan Information page or view a technology plan status. For assistance in revising or creating a new education technology plan, contact your local California Technology Assistance Project (CTAP) technology plan coordinator.
