    use of technology to improve student achievement
    in the academic content areas specified in the
    Project Narrative.

7
EETT Competitive Program Goals
  • Expanded access to up-to-date technology and will
    have access to the technical support necessary to
    implement the EETT Competitive program.

  • Any Questions?

26
EETT Competitive Workshop
  • 10 Minute Break

27
Application Component Review
  • Now onto the heart of the program identified on
    Forms 3, 4, 5, and 7 and described in the
    corresponding sections of the Project Narrative
    beginning with
  • Form 3
  • Program Goals, Objectives, Benchmarks,
  • Data Collection, and Evaluation

28
Form 3
  • First Lets Tackle Known Issues with Form 3
  • Form 3 - Known Issue 1 Baseline data from
    actual student and teacher target groups will be
    difficult to obtain because the RFA was released
    on June 11, when school was out for the summer
    for most districts.

29
Form 3
  • Solutions for Known Issue 1
  • Estimate baseline of target group from a sample
    of similar participants for the application. Get
    written approval from the CDE to revise baseline
    data with data from actual participants after
    they are identified in the fall 2007.
  • Set realistic student and teacher growth targets,
    the achievement of which will determine whether
    the district will receive the 45 per student
    Follow_Up Grant.

30
Form 3
  • Form 3 - Known Issue 2 Given the fact that
    districts who are awarded the grant, will not
    receive their Award Letters until late September
    early October (see RFA pgs 14-15), the
    implementation time for the program in year one
    will be shorter than the year two program.

31
Form 3
  • Solutions for Known Issue 2
  • In the fall 2007, plan to
  • Establish record actual baseline data of
    participating teachers and students.

    implementation plan.

    reflect the shortened implementation time.
