General Assurances

The Department of Education has developed and implemented a document entitled, General Terms,
The Department of Education has developed and implemented a document entitled, General Terms,
Assurances and Conditions for Participation in Federal and State Programs, to comply with:

  A. 34 CFR 76.301 of the Education Department General Administration Regulations (EDGAR) which
     requires local educational agencies to submit a common assurance for participation in federal
     programs funded by the U.S. Department of Education;
  B. applicable regulations of other Federal agencies; and
  C. State regulations and laws pertaining to the expenditure of state funds. In order to receive funding,
     applicants must have on file with the Department of Education, Office of the Comptroller, a signed
     statement by the agency head certifying applicant adherence to these General Assurances for
     Participation in State or Federal Programs. The complete text may be found at
     http://www.fldoe.org/comptroller/gbook.asp

     School Districts, Community Colleges, Universities and State Agencies
     The certification of adherence filed with the Department of Education Comptrollerʼs Office shall remain
     in effect indefinitely unless a change occurs in federal or state law, or there are other changes in
     circumstances affecting a term, assurance, or condition; and does not need to be resubmitted with this
     application.

     No Child Left Behind Assurances (Applicable to All Funded Programs)
     By my signature on this application, I hereby certify that the Palm Beach District will comply with the following
     requirements of the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001:

       The LEA assures that, under Sec. 9528, it will comply with a request by a military recruiter or an institution of
     higher education for secondary students' names, addresses, and telephone numbers, unless a parent has
     "opted out" of providing such information.

       The LEA assures that, under Sec. 9528, it will provide military recruiters the same access to secondary
     school students as it generally provides to postsecondary institutions or prospective employers.


     Persistently Dangerous Schools

       The LEA hereby assures that, under Sec. 9532, if the State of Florida identifies any school within the LEA as
     “persistently dangerous,” it will offer students attending that school, as well as students who are victims of a
     violent criminal offense while on school property, the opportunity to transfer to a safe school.


     *These assurances are in addition to those previously signed by the Local Education Agency (LEA) maintained
     on file in the Florida Department of Educationʼs Comptrollerʼs Office.

Activities

For: Title II, Part D: Enhancing Education through Technology
Describe the major activities to be carried out by the LEA and how these activities will be
aligned with state academic content standards, student academic achievement standards,
and state assessments. Please describe how these activities will contribute to closing the
achievement gap. Key activities that will be supported with ARRA funding should be clearly
identified and described.

Response: Through an aggressive capital projects program with a five-year
upgrade/replacement cycle, the School District of Palm Beach County (SDPBC) has been
successful in providing modern hardware and software in an equitable manner to all schools,
including those designated as low-performing or high-need. However, it is well documented
that the original purchase price accounts for only 25 percent of technologyʼs total cost of
ownership with training, maintenance and support comprising the other 75 percent (Gartner,
2003). It has long been the Districtʼs goal to provide quality staff development that equips
participants with both technical and curriculum integration skills. However, due to the size of
the District, the number of teachers to be trained, and limitations of both budget and staff,
training has often been focused on the basic use of application tools and the meaningful
integration of technology into the curriculum has been limited.

The SDPBC will use FY10 No Child Left Behind:Enhancing Education Through Technology
(NCLB:EETT) entitlement funds to address this issue and help schools to attain target level
on the STaR Chart by establishing technology integration specialists/mentors at all
participating District public (and eligible private) schools, and by equipping them with the
appropriate technology tools, training and support to develop, integrate, share, and model the
use of curriculum-based digital content.

Achievement of the NCLB:EETT program goals will be supported in the following manner: 1)
Student academic achievement will be improved through the development and delivery of
engaging, content-rich, technology-enhanced lessons that are aligned with the Florida
Sunshine State Standards (SSS), 2) Student and teacher technological literacy will be
promoted through the alignment of all projects with the International Society for Technology
in Educationʼs (ISTE) National Educational Technology Standards for students (NETS-S) and
teachers (NETS-T) and/or the Districtʼs Student Technology Educational Performance
Standards (STEPS), and 3) the effective integration of technology resources will be
encouraged through intensive, targeted, sustained technology integration training and
support.

ELEMENTARY TECH AMBASSADOR INITIATIVE:

Each Palm Beach County public (and eligible private) elementary school has been invited to
identify two teachers (one primary-grade and one intermediate-grade) to serve as Tech
Ambassadors. Ninety-five public and private schools are actively participating in this project.
These Tech Ambassadors will serve as facilitators for the integration of technology at their
respective school sites, and will utilize new instructional technology methods to teach literacy
skills through modeling and the creation of dynamic digital learning environments. They will
