-Mobile device management to support tracking and usage of devices;
-Security software to protect access, safety and security of students;
-Solution integration for schools, to support device configuration, logistics and care services; and

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

-Applications may be submitted for Middle Schools and High Schools only.

-Consortium applications (i.e., multiple school districts represented on a single application) will not be accepted. However, smaller school districts that are located in roughly the same geographic area that wish to collaborate with one another to reach the target award size may do so by submitting their own individual applications and indicating a desire to collaborate in their responses to the first narrative question on the application.
