Grants

Thank you for your interest in an OETT grant for your school.  The information below provides an at-a-glance overview of our process.  

 

Phase I - Leadership Training

To start the process, interested schools need to successfully complete Leadership Training offered in partnership with the K20 Center for Educational and Community Renewal at the University of Oklahoma.  Participants will explore the IDEALS for Student Achievement and how they relate to technology use in the classroom. Click here to learn more and to register for the next session

 

Phase II - Grants to Schools

Having successfully completed Phase I, superintendents or administrators in Oklahoma public schools become eligible to apply for Phase II.  This competitive grant awards individual schools and/or district sites with up to $40,000 of education-targeted technology (granted by OETT) and $25,000 of professional development (provided by K20 Center/OK-ACTS). Grant recipients are required to provide a 10% match ($4,000) that can be used for technology equipment, substitutes, or stipends for staff.
