NYSED Technology Funding Updates

As a follow up to the January online testing (OLT) memo, the New York State Education Department (NYSED) will email schools this month with an FAQ about the New York State School Technology Voucher Program. There is no action required in response to the announcement at this time. Note the following:
  • Schools that had 50% or more students who received free or reduced lunch in the 2011-12 schools year are eligible for funding.
  • Although eligible schools will have access to the vouchers during this school year, they will not be able to receive the reimbursements before this year’s budget deadlines (the reimbursements would be considered unspent funds) These funds will instead be used to plan for next year; communications to facilitate this planning will be sent in the spring.
  • Schools that wish to make technology purchases using their current budgets are encouraged to invest in devices for student use and to consult the NYSED and PARCC guidance.
  • Although eligible schools will have access to the vouchers during this school year, they will not be able to receive the reimbursements before this year’s budget deadlines (the reimbursements would be considered unspent funds). These funds will instead be used to plan for next year; communications to facilitate this planning will be sent in the spring.

The DOE will provide more information about the OLT memo in Principals’ Weekly in the coming weeks; additional guidance about the Technology Voucher Program will be shared with schools in the spring.
