It is imperative that all Technology Plans that are due to expire are written, peer reviewed and approved on or before their expiration date. Major funding, including E-Rate, and the NCLB formula grants, as well as any other grant funds that may become available are contingent on the provision that a Districts’ Technology Plan is current and has been reviewed and approved through the Illinois State Board of Education peer review process. It is important to begin planning now. If approval dates lapse, even for a brief period, districts risk losing these funds - or risk being required to reimburse those funds to the funding source.
Tech Plans will be due on February 28th, 2014.
If you are unsure of your Technology Plan’s expiration date please call 815-744-8334 and ask for Jason Bross.
