arrow Previous bar Next arrow

Funding priority will be determined as follows:

(a) All scored applications will be grouped within each CTAP region by score percentage ranges (100-90, 89-80, 79-70, 69-60, and 59-50);

(b) Within each score percentage range, applications will be ranked as follows:

(1) Applications from school districts that received less than $10,000 in funding from the EETT formula grant will be ranked by score percentage and listed first. In the event of a tied score, the applicant with the higher substantial need for assistance in acquiring and using technology as determined by the California School Technology Survey will be listed first.

(2) Applications from school districts that received $10,000 or more from the EETT formula funding will be ranked by score percentage range and placed below the school districts that received less than $10,000 in EETT formula funding. In the event of a tied score, the applicant with the higher substantial need for assistance in acquiring and using technology as determined by the California School Technology Survey will be listed first.

(c) Starting with the 100-90 score percentage range and working downward, funding will then be allocated within each scoring percentage range to school districts based upon the middle and junior high schools contained in each application.

(d) If there is a balance remaining after all middle and junior high schools have been funded, starting with the 100-90 score percentage range and working downward, funding will next be allocated within each scoring percentage range to each school district based upon the elementary schools in each application.

(e) If there is a balance remaining after all elementary schools have been funded, starting with the 100-90 score percentage range and working downward, funding will be allocated within each score percentage range to each school district based upon the other schools serving grades 4-8 in the application.

School type will be verified prior to funding. School type will be determined based on the County District School (CDS) ownership code for each school listed on forms 8a, 8b, and 8c (see Section 11975(h)-(j)) as of the date the grant application is due. School districts that request a change of ownership code must have completed a Change Request for a County-District-School (CDS) Code (revised 6/2003), and submitted the form to the California Department of Education a minimum of 30 (thirty) working days prior to the grant application deadline to assure the correct ownership code can be validated.
