Funding Description

Education Technology K-12 Vouchers are the result of the Settlement Agreement between California consumers and the Microsoft Corporation. The vouchers are to be used to assist districts to implement and support their district technology plans designed to foster effective teaching and promote student achievement in eligible schools that serve students in kindergarten through grade twelve. The vouchers can be redeemed for a variety of goods and services and may be used for any computer platform that the school or district specifies. The vouchers will be in the form of 50 percent General Purpose Vouchers and 50 percent Specific Category Software Vouchers. The California Department of Education is providing services for the settlement claims administrator, selected by the court, that is managing the private funding for the vouchers.
