Enhancing Education Through Technology (EETT)

Title II, Part D of No Child Left Behind

Program Description: The Enhancing Education Through Technology (EETT) Program consolidates the Technology Literacy Challenge Fund (TLCF) Program and the Technology Innovative Challenge Grant Program into a single state formula grant program (ESEA Title II, Part D, Subpart 1). Under the EETT program, the U.S. Department of Education provides grants to state educational agencies (SEAs) on the basis of their proportionate share of funding under Part A of Title I. States may retain up to 5 percent of their allocations for state-level activities. Wisconsin distributes one-half of the remainder by formula to eligible local educational agencies (LEAs) and the other one-half competitively to eligible local entities.

The Wisconsin program provides formula grants and competitive grants. This program is directed toward districts with the highest percentages of children from families with incomes below the poverty line. Therefore some Wisconsin districts will get no formula dollars and most will get amounts under $5,000. The competitive funds are also restricted to "high need" districts and less than half of Wisconsin's districts will meet that criteria. Others will be required to work in consortia with "high need" districts to be able to access the funds. Finally, the requirements from the US Department of Education include a minimum of 25 percent of funds used for professional development. This is true of both formula and competitive dollars.

Who is Eligible to Apply: For the Formula portion of the grant, LEAs that are eligible for ESEA Title I, Part A may also receive this (Title II, Part D) funding. Application is made via the ESEA Consolidated Application (see http://esea.dpi.wi.gov/esea_application). Eligibility information for the competitive portion of the grant can be found at /files/imt/pdf/eligibility09.pdf.
