Idaho Technology Pilot Grant

The 2014 Idaho Legislature has appropriated $3 million to be made available to schools in multiple districts across Idaho for periods of up to two years in duration for technology pilot projects designed to improve student academic growth as well as financial efficiencies through a full integration technology model. It is the intent of this grant to focus on technology implementation at a single school building that will be scalable to other schools and sustainable statewide after the technology pilot period. In many situations across Idaho, the state recognizes that school buildings are severely lacking in technology that can enhance and maximize learning opportunities for students and changing instructional practices for educators. In the 21st Century, every student and teacher in every school in Idaho should have access to the necessary technology, tools, and knowledge to create a next generation learning environment.

The Education and Research Transfer Program (ERTP) allows schools within the state of Idaho to apply for computer and non-computer surplus equipment from the Idaho National Laboratory (INL). The surplus equipment is free for the schools, but the school is responsible for either picking up the equipment or paying for shipping.

Computer Equipment - To apply for computer equipment the school must submit a proposal to the SDE or directly to the INL contact found HERE. Proposals are accepted any time and are processed within the INL for approval.  The same INL contact link above can assist with logistic options that best meets the needs of the school. Generally there is a three to four week processing cycle for computers.  For more questions contact Todd Lawrence at SDE below.
