      • internal connections

  • Did somebody say discounts?
    • Discounts range from 20% to 90% of the costs of eligible services
    • Discounts depend on the level of poverty and the urban/rural status of the population served.
  • It all starts with a plan!
    • School districts must begin the application process by creating and submitting a technology plan.
    • This plan includes how technology will be used to achieve specific curriculum goals or library service improvements.
  • What’s in a plan?
    • The plan must include:
      • Clear goals and a realistic strategy for using telecommunications and information technology
      • A professional development strategy to ensure that staff know how to use the new technologies
  • Plan continued
      • An assessment of the telecommunication services, hardware, software, and other services needed
      • An evaluation process that enables the school or library to monitor progress toward the specified goals.
