INTRODUCTION

The Enhancing Education Through Technology (EETT) Program was established as a part of
the federal No Child Left Behind, Public Law, 107-110, Title II, Part D, section 2401. Under this
program, the Arkansas Department of Education will award federally-funded grants to eligible
local entities and consortiums. Governed by the guidelines from the federal No Child Left
Behind, the purpose of this competitive grant is to improve student academic achievement
through the effective integration of technology. It is also designed to assist every student,
regardless of race, ethnicity, income, geographical location, or disability, in becoming
technologically literate. EETT grant proposals should emphasize the effective integration of
technology resources with professional development to promote research-based instructional
methods that can be widely replicated.



PROGRAM GOALS

The major purpose of the Enhancing Education Through Technology program is to assist school
systems in improving student academic achievement. Grant funding will serve to enhance
ongoing efforts to improve teaching and learning through the use of technology. In particular,
attention should be given to:
     improving student achievement through the use of technology;
     assisting every student to become technologically literate by the end of the eighth grade;
        and
     encouraging the effective integration of technology.

District Performance Goals
To receive EETT competitive funds, LEAs must develop a process and accountability measures
that will be used to evaluate the extent to which activities funded under the program are
effective in:
     integrating technology into curricula and instruction;
     increasing the ability of teachers to teach; and
     enabling students to meet challenging State standards, including technology literacy.


District Technology Plan
Ark Code 6-5-401 states that each school shall develop a long-range school improvement plan
focused on student achievement. Local school districts must also have a comprehensive, long-
range, district wide technology plan for implementing educational technology initiatives that
support the school improvement plan. The district technology plan should be closely aligned
with the school improvement plan. The local school district technology plan must be
approved in order to receive state or federal technology funds. Your technology plan will
be reviewed to ensure that whatever you are proposing for EETT grant funds is reflected in your
plan. If necessary, you may amend your technology plan.



Enhancing Education Through Technology Competitive Grant                                     1
OVERVIEW

Eligible Applicants
An eligible local entity is either a “high-need local educational agency” or an “eligible local
partnership.” Only eligible local entities may receive competitive EETT funds.

High-need local educational agency is an LEA that
       is among those LEAs in the State with the highest numbers or percentages of
         children from families with incomes below the poverty line (See Appendix A) AND
       serves one or more schools identified for improvement or corrective action under
         section 1116 of the ESEA, OR has a substantial need for assistance in acquiring
         and using technology. ‘Substantial need’ is defined as the school districts that have
         a greater than 5.0 student to multimedia computer ratio. (See Appendix B)

For the purposes of this program, the term “poverty line” means the poverty line (as defined by
the Office of Management and Budget and revised annually in accordance with section 673(2)
of the Community Services Block Grant Act) applicable to a family of the size involved (ESEA
Section 9101 (33).

In Arkansas, the median percentage of children from families with incomes below poverty line is
20.7%. The definition for “highest numbers or percentages of children from families with
incomes below the poverty line in Arkansas is:
        The LEA has 20.7%, or more, of children from families with incomes below the
          poverty line living within the LEA (See Appendix A)


What is an “eligible local partnership”?
An “eligible local partnership” is a partnership that includes at least one high-need LEA and at
least one of the following:
     An LEA that can demonstrate that teachers in its schools are effectively integrating
        technology and proven teaching practices into instruction, based on a review of relevant
        research, and that the integration results in improvement in classroom instruction and in
        helping students meet challenging academic standards
     An institution of higher education in full compliance with the reporting requirements of
        the Higher Education Act of 1965, as amended, and that has not been identified by the
        State as low-performing under that act.
     A for-profit business or organization that develops, designs, manufactures, or produces
        technology products or services or has substantial expertise in the application of
        technology in instruction.
     A public or private nonprofit organization with demonstrated expertise in the application
        of educational technology in instruction.

The partnership may also include other LEAs, educational service agencies, libraries, or other
educational entities appropriate to provide local programs.

The majority of the eligible local partnership’s services must focus on the needs of the
“high-need” LEA.

Focus of Competitive Awards

For the grant cycle, July 1, 2004-September 30, 2005, there are two categories of competitive
awards:

I. State Professional Development Initiative - Proposals must address on a statewide basis
the technology professional development and technical assistance needs of LEA’s that qualify
for competitive grants in this Request for Proposals. The proposals may also offer similar
services for LEA’s that received Ed Tech formula grants of insufficient size to be effective. The
proposals may originate from either a consortium of Educational Service Cooperatives or local
school districts but the scope of the proposal(s) must be broad enough to provide direct services
to qualified districts throughout the state.

II. Local Education Agency Proposals
Proposals should be based on a local school/district technology plan and on strategies
developed as part of the school’s Arkansas Comprehensive School Improvement Plan (ACSIP).
All proposals should address the five strategies listed on Form 6 of this application.


Allocation of Funds and Eligible Expenses

The EETT Competitive Grants are made available through the U.S. Department of Education’s
Enhancing Education through Technology program and are distributed on a competitive basis to
public local education agencies (LEAs). Approximately $2.5 million is available to LEAs in
Arkansas for EETT Competitive Grants during this funding cycle. To submit a competitive
proposal, an applicant must meet the definition of high-need LEA or eligible local partnership. If
a partnership is established, the goals of the proposal must meet the needs of the high-need
LEA.

To meet the statutory requirements of No Child Left Behind legislation, the Arkansas
Department of Education will use a monitoring and program review instrument to determine
compliance with the law and regulations in the funded projects. This process will also evaluate
the extent to which activities funded under the EETT are effective in (1) integrating technology
into curricula and instruction; (2) increasing the ability of teachers to teach; and (3) enabling
students to meet challenging State standards.

Each EETT recipient must use at least twenty-five percent (25%) of its funds to provide ongoing,
sustained, intensive, and high-quality professional development. Professional development
must be research-based. The remaining funds may be used to carry out other activities
consistent with the purposes of the program and the district’s technology plan and school
improvement plan. A recipient of EETT funds may support activities such as:
    Integrating technology into curriculum and instruction
    Using technology to create new learning environments
           o Accessing data and resources to develop curricula and instructional materials
           o Enhancing communications
           o Retrieving internet-based resources
           o Improving classroom instruction and assessment in core academic areas

Length of Funding

All competitive awards will be one-year awards. Funding begins at the time of official grant
award notification. Unless an LEA receives prior approval from the Arkansas Department of
Education, all funds should be expended by September 30, 2005.

Funding and Instructional Priorities

In determining a funding and instructional focus, each eligible LEA should develop a proposal of
appropriate size and scope to best facilitate the grant’s goals: to (a) improve student academic
achievement through the use of technology in schools; (b) assist all students in becoming
technologically literate by the end of the eighth grade; and (c) encourage the effective
integration of technology in teacher training and curriculum development to establish successful
research-based instructional methods. Additionally, the focus of a grant proposal should be
consistent with the specified priorities of the particular category of award and meet all minimum
requirements.

Also, Enhancing Education Through Technology legislation mandates specific criteria to be
used in considering funding:
    Focus of the grant must be on addressing the needs of the high-need LEA
    Priority to LEAs that are eligible for competitive, and received insufficient amounts under
       the formula award
    Program must be of sufficient size, duration, scope, and quality
    Equitable rural/urban distribution
    ‘High-need’ LEA must serve as the fiscal agent
    At least twenty-five percent (25%) of the funds must be allocated to provide ongoing,
       sustained, and intensive, high-quality professional development that is based on relevant
       research.


Applicant Responsibilities and Commitments

Superintendents of participating LEAs must agree to all assurances and provide the necessary
signatures. It is required that all applicants demonstrate an increasing commitment to achieving
the federal grant goals that extend well beyond the boundaries of this application. In particular,
LEAs are expected (a) to demonstrate increased coordination of federal (e.g. Title I, II, VI) and
state funds to support teaching, learning, and technology; (b) to increase the ability of teachers
to teach; and (c) to enable students to meet challenging State standards, including technology
literacy. Superintendents must agree that financial resources provided under the EETT grant will
supplement, not supplant, state and local funds.

A requirement of receiving EETT funds is evidence of compliance with the Children’s Internet
Protection Act (CIPA). LEAs must provide the Arkansas Department of Education with a copy
of their CIPA certificate as proof that schools have adopted and are enforcing Internet safety
policies, including Internet filtering.

Review Process

ADE will employ a review procedure that is based on an evaluation of the written proposals and
interviews of the prospective staff by a review team that will include out-of-state reviewers.

The steps in the review process are outlined below.
       1. Proposals will be sent to the review team prior to their arrival at the Arkansas
           Department of Education Technology Center.
       2. The review team will interview key project personnel involved in proposals under
           review. A consensus report will be written by the review team that will:
           a. separately assess each proposal according to the criteria identified in this RFP;
           b. recommend improvements in proposals where appropriate; and rate each
               proposal in one of the following categories: “Approved for Funding,” “Not
               Approved for Funding.” Proposals recommended as “Approved” may require
               certain modifications and/or contingencies to be addressed as identified by the
               reviewers.

Note: The Department of Education may reject applications that do not conform to the
requirements of the RFP. Applications may be rejected for reasons that include, but are not
limited to, the following:
         application is incomplete or contains irregularities that make the application indefinite
             or ambiguous;
         authorized representative of the applicant has not signed the application;
         application contains false or misleading statements or references; or
              application does not meet all minimum technical requirements of the RFP.

Evaluation

To be considered for an EETT Competitive Grant, applicants must have completed all required
End-of-Year Reports for technology grants awarded in previous years. Additionally, all EETT
Competitive Grant awardees are required to participate in evaluation efforts related to the
technology initiatives implemented.

              Technology Training Evaluation - must be completed by every participant in all
               training sessions funded by EETT funds.
              End of Project Evaluation - should reflect how districts obtained their goals and
               target indicators that were established in the grant application.

Guidelines for Completing Application Components

Abstract & Contextual Background (Form 4)
The Abstract, not to exceed 250 words, is an overview of the application. It should concisely
summarize the more detailed information presented in the proposal - a brief description of the
project, goals, and expected outcomes.

The Contextual Background, not to exceed 250 words, should assist the reviewer in
understanding the context for your proposal. It should speak to the needs of the applicant’s
district/school and the resources currently available to support the work of the proposal. The
applicant should also include what has been previously accomplished with technology grant
funding and demonstrates effective and successful use of previous technology awards.

Accountability Measures (Form 5)
The applicant must provide a detailed description of the process and accountability measures
that will be used to evaluate the extent to which activities funded under this subpart are effective
in integrating technology into curricula and instruction, increasing the ability of teachers to teach,
and enabling students to meet challenging state academic content and student academic
achievement standards.

The Project Accountability Measures/Evaluation chart, Form 5, must be completed and must
define what the applicant proposes to achieve and measure if funds are awarded for the
proposal. The Enhancing Education through Technology (EETT) program, of the No Child
Left Behind legislation, identifies specific performance goals for districts receiving funds
through EETT. The EETT goals reflect overall statements of expectations arising from the
purposes of the No Child Left Behind legislation. Each district and/or school applying for a
proposal shall adopt these goals:
    1. Student achievement, including technology literacy, of all students is improved through
       the use of technology.
    2. Teachers effectively use technology and research-based practices to support student
       learning.
    3. Technology is integrated throughout the curriculum.

LEAs are to use performance indicators to measure their progress in meeting performance
goals. Along with requiring LEAs to adopt the three key performance goals identified above, the
Department requires each district to adopt, at a minimum, (a) the Department’s core set of
performance indicators for these three performance goals and (b) additional performance
indicators that are appropriate to the particular program and district. It is expected that for each
performance goal a minimum of three performance indicators would be identified. For
competitive awards, the performance indicators should be linked to the specific type of
competitive award being sought.

As an example, relative to the first performance goal, “Student achievement, including
technology literacy, of all students is improved through the use of technology,” the department
would require all districts to use the following indicator:
         Performance Indicator 1.1: The percentage of students by end of grade 8 that meet or
         exceed state standards for student literacy in technology.
The Sample Performance Indicators chart, located in Appendix B, provides additional guidance
in the identification of other possible performance indicators.

          For each performance indicator, the district/school must provide a specific Performance
          Target that defines the progress a district/school expects to make at specified points in
          time with respect to each indicator. For example, for performance indicator 1.1, the
          district/school might adopt as a target: The percentage of students by end of grade 8


Enhancing Education Through Technology Competitive Grant                                         7
          that meet or exceed state standards for student literacy in technology will increase from
          “x” percent in 2003-2004, to “y” percent in 2004-2005, to “z” percent in 2005-2006.

While each district/school is required to adopt the core goals and performance indicators that
the department has established, the district would define and adopt its own performance
targets. See Appendix C for the EETT goals and indicators that the department would require
districts to adopt and some examples of additional performance indicators and some examples
of performance targets that districts might choose to use.

Finally, the accountability system must provide for appropriate collection of data that will explain
how well districts are succeeding in meeting their performance targets. Districts/schools would
describe the timelines and benchmarks for securing these data, as well as the data sources.
Districts/schools must also provide “baseline data” in the context of the defined performance
target; that is, for each performance target, a number must be provided for the baseline year.

In short, the project Accountability Measures/Evaluation Chart (Form 5) provides the
entire context for the remainder of the application. Performance goals, performance
indicators, and performance targets must drive all proposed strategies and activities.


Strategies (Form 6)
The Strategies form (Form 6) identifies the “how” and the “what” of the proposal. In this section
of the application, the applicant must identify the specific actions and strategies that will be
implemented to reach the performance goals. In addition to targeting performance goals, the
identified actions and strategies should (1) reflect the district’s overall strategic plan for
technology, (2) speak to strategies required by the EETT legislation, and (3) address the
minimal components defined for the particular type of competitive award being sought.

The Arkansas Educational Technology Plan provides a resource for possible local strategies.
For each area below, describe what activities and actions will be employed within the context of
the particular grant proposal. Applicant must address each strategy area – access to
computers, professional development, student achievement, integration of technology, and
parental involvement – in the context of the particular category of grant.

     1. Strategies to increase access to computers and internet connectivity
          In this section, describe what the district will do to assure that the appropriate level of
          computers and connectivity is available in the schools and classrooms to accomplish the
          goals of the proposal. The applicant must include a description of the steps that will be
          taken to ensure that all students and teachers in the schools served by the LEA have
          increased access to educational technology. At a minimum, these actions should speak
          to how school and classroom connectivity will be improved, how the number of
          computers available in actual instructional classrooms will be improved, and how the
          number of schools in which all students are able to work from a networked computer will
          be increased, including how the applicant will use funds under this grant to help ensure
          that students in high-poverty and high-needs schools have access to technology.

     2. Strategies to provide ongoing professional development for teachers, principals,
        administrators, school library personnel
          In this section, identify the comprehensive professional development program that will
          support the proposal and further effective use of technology in the classroom or library
          media center, including a list of any entities that will be involved in providing the ongoing,
          sustained professional development. In particular, the applicant should describe how
          professional development initiatives will be utilized and to what extent.



Enhancing Education Through Technology Competitive Grant                                           8
          Note: a recipient shall use not less than 25% of EETT funds to provide ongoing,
          sustained, and intensive high-quality professional development that is based on relevant
          research.

     3. Strategies to improve student achievement, including technology literacy
          In this section, spell out the actions (e.g. teaching practices, instructional strategies,
          curricula materials, etc.) that will be implemented to increase student achievement and
          technology literacy through the effective use of technology. The applicant could include
          in this discussion, identification of ways that the district might capitalize on the potential
          of distance learning to meet the curriculum needs of students, particularly for those
          areas that would not otherwise have access to such courses and curricula due to
          geographical isolation or insufficient resources.

     4. Strategies to ensure integration of technology into curriculum and instruction
          In this section, describe how you will identify and promote curricula and teaching
          strategies that integrate technology (including software and other electronically delivered
          learning materials) effectively into curricula and instruction, and a timeline for such
          integration. As in previous sections, the applicant should identify ways that other
          resources will be utilized. Applicants may identify ways in which they will prepare and
          compensate one or more teachers in schools as technology leaders who are provided
          with the means to serve as experts and train other teachers in the effective use of
          technology in the particular school.

     4. Strategies to ensure the effective use of technology to promote parental involvement
        and increase communication with parents
        In this section, include a description of how the applicant will ensure the effective use of
        technology to promote parental involvement and increase communication with parents,
        including a description of how parents will be informed of the technology being applied
        in their child’s education. Applicants can explore ways that technology can develop or
        expand efforts to connect schools and teachers with parents and students to promote
        meaningful parental involvement, to foster increased communication about curricula,
        assignments, and assessments between students, parents, and teacher.

Budget Summary & Budget Detail Narrative (Form 7)

Budget Summary Form
The applicant should provide a complete budget summary of all expenditures related to the
project. LEA’s whose proposals are approved for funding may be required to submit a revised
budget after final approval. The Department of Education must approve final budgets before any
grant funds are released for disbursement. Unless prior approval is obtained, all EETT monies
awarded should be expended by September 30, 2005.

Budget Detail Narrative
Reviewers will carefully examine all the budget materials to assess whether the budget is
appropriate to the tasks you propose in the Strategies section of the application. In the budget
narrative, the applicant must fully explain each budget item included on the Budget Summary
form. The budget must be reasonable for the tasks proposed, and the relationship of items in
the budget to the Accountability Measures and Strategies must be clearly evident. Clarity and
