Federal Technology Grants Awarded To Local Schools

khts_schools_chalkboardState Superintendent of Public Instruction Jack O’Connell today announced the California Department of Education (CDE) is awarding $34 million in federal Enhancing Education Through Technology (EETT) funding to 1,062 local educational agencies in the state.

Technology grants were awarded to local school districts with one-time funding provided by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA). Of the $650 million federal appropriation, California schools get $71 million.

Grants to local recipients included $25,006 to the William S. Hart High School District; $13,680 to the Newhall School District; $10,493 to the Sulphur Springs School District; $9,689 to the Saugus Union School District and $3,200 to the Acton-Agua Dulce Unified School District.

“In this high-tech age, teachers need the right tools to help prepare students for success in our competitive, global economy,” said O’Connell. “These funds will help schools integrate technology into their classrooms and train teachers to use these tools more effectively to enhance their students’ learning experience.”

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.

As a condition to receiving any technology grants administered by the California Department of Education, the recipient schools or districts must have a current three- to five-year education technology plan approved by the CDE.
