The Education Technology (Ed Tech) K-12 Voucher Program was a grant opportunity that was made available through a Settlement Agreement between California consumers and Microsoft Corporation in Microsoft Cases, Judicial Council Coordinated Proceedings No. 4106, Superior Court of California, County of San Francisco, Department 305. A separate fund was established with 66 2/3 percent of the difference between the Face Value Amount of the Settlement ($1.1 billion) and the amount of issued and redeemed Consumer Vouchers. The fund amount, in the form of vouchers, was offered to eligible schools. The amount was specified in the Settlement Agreement to be allocated 50 percent as General Purpose Vouchers and 50 percent as Specific Category Software Vouchers. The Settlement Claims Administrator notified eligible schools and districts of vouchers according to enrollment at qualifying schools. Districts had until November 30, 2018 to submit receipts.
