The District of Columbia, Hawaii, and U.S. territories will have their plans approved under the U.S. Department of Education's Enhancing Education Through Technology (EETT) program.
The U.S. Department of Interior's Bureau of Indian Education (BIE) is the preferred approver for BIE contract and grant school technology plans, and it will use the criteria and standards outlined in Technology Planning and Tech Plan Scope and Timeframe to approve individual BIE school plans. BIE-operated schools can be covered by a plan written by the BIE and approved by the U.S. Department of Education. Any BIE school with an approved technology plan under the EETT program has an approved technology plan.
An individual BIE contract or grant school with a BIE-approved plan may choose to participate in the Schools and Libraries Program in its own right independently of the BIE, if the BIE-approved technology plan supports and validates the use of the contracted telecommunications services for educational purposes in that school in a manner consistent with the criteria and standards outlined in Technology Planning and Tech Plan Scope and Timeframe. If an individual BIE school, or any other school or system serving Indian students, develops a technology plan that is not covered by BIE approval, USAC will consult with appropriate entities to establish an alternative approval procedure.
