National Trends: Enhancing Education through Technology--No Child Left Behind Title II D--Year One in Review

State Educational Technology Directors Association
In the fall of 2003, the State Educational Technology Directors Association (SETDA) commissioned the Metiri Group to conduct a national survey on the first year of implementation of the No Child Left Behind, Title II, Part D, Enhancing Education through Technology program. The findings in this report represent 46 states and the District of Columbia, representing 92% of the federal dollars allocated across the United States in 2002-2003. The critical role of NCLB, Title II, Part D funding in advancing the effective use of technology in student learning is striking, as evidenced by the state technology directors' comments. For 25% of respondents, these funds were literally the "only game in town"; their school districts had no other funding earmarked specifically for technology in schools. The findings from SETDA's national survey are intended to inform education technology policy leaders on three important questions: (1) How are grant recipients across the nation structuring programs to meet Title II D goals?; (2) What administrative approaches by states are most effective in guiding and supporting LEAs?; and (3) Is the program, with its current structure, likely to lead to the achievement of Title II D goals? Appended are: (1) Representative Projects Matched to NCLB Purposes; and (2) Survey Instrument. (Contains 7 tables and 5 charts.)
