This was a competitive grant process for the first $5 million of $38 million in state technology bond funding.
Districts and schools marked as finalists have qualified for state funds in the first round of Digital Connections Partnership Schools Grant funding.
Districts and schools marked as semifinalists may be funded when additional state bond funds become available. It is possible semifinalists may be asked to edit their proposal before they are awarded funding. Some semifinalists may be eligible to receive funding if the final infrastructure costs for finalist districts are less than projected or if one or more finalists are unable to meet the local match obligation.
The proposals of districts and schools identified as candidates require further revision before they can be recommended for funding.
