arrow Previous bar Next arrow

Funds will be competitively awarded on a geographic basis conforming to the 11 CTAP regions, as referenced above in Section 11973(f). Applicants within each region will compete against other applicants from that region. The amount of funding available for each region is based upon the California Basic Educational Data System (CBEDS) data two years prior to the grant award to determine grade 4-8 enrollment. Actual grant awards to school districts will be based on CBEDS data for one year prior to the grant award. Technology survey data will be used to determine the current student-to-multimedia computer ratio and compare to the request for additional technology within the application. Allocations are determined through the following procedure:

(a) Listing of districts serving grades 4-8 in the state with the highest number of children from families with an income below the poverty line established by the federal Director of the Office of Management and Budget;

(b) Listing of districts serving grades 4-8 in the state with the highest percentage of children from families with an income below the poverty line established by the federal Director of the Office of Management and Budget;

(c) Merging the top third of the districts from each list to determine final eligibility list;

(d) Removing all districts that neither (1) operate one or more schools identified for improvement or corrective action under Section 1116 of the Federal No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 (Public Law 107-110), nor (2) have a substantial need for assistance in acquiring and using technology;

(e) Sorting the list by CTAP region;

(f) Determining the grade 4-8 enrollment for all districts remaining on the list, and

(g) Determining the proportionate amount of funding for each CTAP region based upon the total grade 4-8 enrollment for all districts remaining on the list.
