Grant Description
Grants to Los Angeles County, California schools to invest in instructional technology resources to improve classroom education. Schools must provide a matching investment in education and professional development in order to receive the technology items, such as laptops, tablets, carts, and other devices.

The purposes of this grant are to encourage innovative uses of instructional technology, promote collaboration between schools around the use of instructional technology, and invest in schools that have not yet received devices.

Schools must make investments in instructional technology in order to receive matching devices from the District. These investments can be anything that compliments the use of the matching devices and promotes student learning. A few potential examples include supplemental instructional content, a learning management system, instructional technology support staff, or additional devices, although there are many other creative possibilities.

Pre-Application Information
To prevent funds from depleting too quickly, a matching cap will be set in the amount of $200 for every student enrolled in the school(s) submitting the proposals, based on Norm Day counts. For example, if a school with 1,000 students submits a proposal that is accepted, the District will match every dollar they invest, up to $200,000.

Schools that submit collaborative proposals will have the same cap, but will benefit from the higher ratio. For example, if two schools with a combined enrollment of 1,000 students submit a joint proposal that is accepted, there will still be a cap of $200,000. However, those schools will only need to invest $100,000 to receive $200,000 in equipment from the District. If they invest more than $100,000, the District will still provide $200,000 in equipment.

The submission window for these applications opens on Monday, November 16, 2015 and closes on Friday, January 8, 2015, as shown in the timeline below:
