ESEA Title II, Technology Literacy Challenge Fund

Technology Literacy Challenge Fund (TLCF) Performance Report

According to the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, no persons are required to respond to a collection of information unless it displays a valid OMB control number. The valid OMB control number for this information collection is 1810-0608. The time required to complete this information collection is estimated to average 40 hours per state education agency and 5 hours per subgrantee. These estimates include time to review instructions, search existing data resources, gather the data needed, and complete and review the information collection. If you have any comments concerning the accuracy of the time estimate or suggestions for improving this form, please write to: US Department of Education, Washington, DC 20202-4651. If you have comments or concerns regarding the status of your individual submission of this form, write directly to: Technology Literacy Challenge Fund, US Department of Education, Washington, DC 20202-6100.

The authority for requesting a performance report is contained in the Education Department General Administrative Regulations (EDGAR, 34 CFR Part 76.720-722 and 80.40) which requires States to file reports on program performance annually.

Consistent with the common reporting deadline for Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) formula grant programs, TLCF reports are due the December 1 following the end of the reporting period.

The Companion Document provides instructions, additional examples, and directions for the report. Underlined words are defined in the glossary at the end of the companion document. The Performance Report and the Companion Document are intended to be read side-by side.

Technology Literacy Challenge Fund
Performance Report

The Technology Literacy Challenge Fund (TLCF) is one important part of a range of public and private sector resources available to help States and communities achieve their educational technology goals. The TLCF offers States an opportunity to provide school districts — especially those with high rates of poverty and a great need for technology — with funds that will help them meet their most important technology needs. The intent of the TLCF is to help States, at whatever stage in education reform, to effectively increase the capacity of schools to integrate educational technology into daily teaching and learning. Ultimately, the goal is to make a connection between the State goals for educational technology and integrating technology into teaching and learning to transform and change learning opportunities that will lead to increased student achievement.

This performance report is intended to collect annual information that is reliable and of high-quality regarding the use of funds under the Technology Literacy Challenge Fund and the progress of each State towards meeting its goals for educational technology. We intend this performance report to serve as one instrument to collect information that will inform and provide an understanding of the national picture of educational technology as well as the impact of the TLCF. The explicit purposes for the performance report are:
