The non-public worksheet is included on the Program Specific Page to determine the non-public schools’ equitable share of Title IID funds. April, 2008

31 eGMS NCLB Title IID The primary goal of Title IID is to improve student achievement through the use of technology in elementary and secondary schools. Additional goals include helping all students become technologically literate by the end of eighth grade. This goal is accomplished through the integration of technology in classroom instruction. Teacher training focuses on using research-based instructional methods and curricula. April, 2008

32 eGMS NCLB Title IID By federal law, a district applying for a Title IID grant must have a current and approved technology plan as well as an acceptable use policy in place at ISBE to receive funding. If the district does not have an approved technology plan, please check the “District is not applying at this time” check box on the District Info tab. The Title IID application is submitted through the same process as with all other grants. April, 2008
