The Georgia Department of Education retains 5% of its total Title II, Part D allocation for state-level activities, and distributes the remainder competitively to eligible local educational agencies (LEAs). We believe that through the competitive grants, we can better target specific improvements in student achievement through the use of technology and we can better track, monitor, and evaluate the impact. All districts who are eligible for the competitive grants will be notified through their superintendent and all eligible schools will receive notification through their principal.
Continuing Competitive Grants
FY11 Title IID Competitive grant titled Integrating the National Educational Technology Standards (NETS-S) to Prepare College and Career Ready Students will specifically address the need to integrate rigorous technology standards into the K-8 Georgia Performance Standards (GPS) and the Common Core Georgia Performance Standards (CCGPS), thus providing an effective curriculum to improve student mastery of 21st century skills.
The Ed Tech ARRA funds provide an unprecedented opportunity to implement 21st century classrooms using innovative strategies that enhance instruction, facilitate teaching and learning, and improve student achievement.
