NCLB Title IID Grants to Districts in 2007-08


The Enhancing Education through Technology grants to districts (commonly known as No Child Left Behind, Title II-D Grants) will be issued in four phases during 2007-08. Each phase will have a separate application process and separate due date. Release of funds is contingent on receipt of the federal funds award notice from the U.S. Department of Education, which we expect to receive on or about July 1, 2007. The Local Educational Support Center Network (LESCN) will be involved in varying degrees in all four phases. The four phases are briefly outlined below:


Phase I Digital Portfolio Series



This is an opportunity for districts to send school teams to a series of digital portfolio professional development institutes beginning in the fall 2007 and continuing throughout the 2007-08 year. This opportunity is designed to assist NH schools to address the digital portfolio component of their ICT Literacy Programs while deepening understanding of the power of portfolios to engage students and assess learning in multiple ways. All districts, regardless of high need status, are encouraged to submit team applications. While participation cannot be guaranteed until all applications have been received, every effort will be made to accommodate as many teams as possible. Teams should review the description of the digital portfolio series prior to submitting their application. The online application is brief and is available through June 30, 2007 at


Phase II Technology Integration Mini-Grants



High need school district teams will be able to apply for $5,000 mini-grants to improve the level of technology integration within classrooms in core content areas. Approximately 30 mini-grants are expected to be awarded in this phase. Funds may be used for hardware, software, and professional development. Additional professional development will be provided through LESCN sites to support specific team needs. Each grant must identify a primary and secondary content area of focus. The application and a more complete description will be posted by early September at An informational meeting is scheduled for 9/25/07 in Concord. Watch this site for more details.


Phase III Digital Tools Grants



High need school district teams will be able to apply for grants ($10,000 minimum, based on district size and poverty percentages) to improve the level of technology integration within their districts. Between 20 - 40 grants are expected to be awarded in this phase. Due to competing deadlines, the original target date for posting the application has been delayed. The final application is being edited now and a new target date for online posting is set for November 9th. Watch this site for the application guidance, application format, and more relevant links.


Phase IV LESCN Continuation Services



LESCN sites will be able to apply through sponsoring districts for continuation grants to support delivery of technology enhanced professional development services. Application details will be posted in December at
