(1) Existing law creates, until January 1, 2014, the California Technology Assistance Project administered by the State Department of Education to provide a regionalized network of technical assistance to schools and school districts on the implementation of education technology. The California Technology Assistance Project is composed of regional consortia that work collaboratively with school districts and county offices of education to meet locally defined educational needs that can be effectively addressed with the use of technology. Existing law requires the State Board of Education to award grants to fund a school district or county office of education in each region of the California Technology Assistance Project to act as the lead agency to administer the services of that region.
Existing law requires grant funding to be provided through the annual Budget Act.
This bill would provide that these provisions would remain in effect until January 1, 2019.
(2) Existing law requires the State
Department of Education to administer specified provisions governing education technology and authorizes school districts, county offices of education, and state special schools to apply to the State Board of Education to participate in grant programs related to education technology. Existing law requires funding to be provided through the annual Budget Act to the Superintendent of Public Instruction to provide centralized statewide educational technology services that address locally defined needs and are more efficiently and effectively provided on a statewide basis. Under existing law, these provisions remain in effect until January 1, 2014.
This bill would instead provide that these provisions would remain in effect until January 1, 2019.
