The Office of Educational Technology at the NHDOE will issue a Request for Proposals (RFP) this year for competitive grants to eligible districts, under the ESEA Title II-D Program (Enhancing Education Through Technology), to support the improvement of student achievement through the use of technology in elementary and secondary schools. Due to budget cuts at the federal level, a total of $480,000 will be available this year for three types of Title II-D grants: Technology Leader Cohort (TLC) Program for Teachers and Administrators (15-20 school teams), Classroom Technology Mini-Grants (15-20 school teams), and a single Digital Resources Consortium Grant.
12/15/2010 ... NHDOE-OET releases first draft of RFP. Please note that this draft is intended to promote discussion of essential and targeted features and responsibilities, increase district understanding of grant expectations, and assist districts in the grant writing process.
