• EQUIPMENT:

     

     

    Purchasing equipment - can we buy computers? Can we buy computers for every student at our school?

    Yes, you can purchase computers, but ONLY CTE students in the course sequence can use the equipment. This is not negotiable and is a requirement of the grant program. Funding/Equipment cannot be used in Math, English and other non-CTE classrooms for students who are NOT participating in the CTE pathway and course sequence. Additionally, the equipment requested must make sense for the CTE pathway sequence implemented at your site. Mismatched equipment to your pathway will not be funded.

     

     

    Can CTEIG funds be used to purchase teacher instructional equipment and/or supplies?

    No. Teacher instructional equipment/supplies are not allowable expenses with CTEIG funds.

     

     

    Can funds be used in the Marketing Sales and Service sector and Entrepreneurship pathway to purchase large format and vinyl printers to make posters to advertise their virtual business products?       

    Pathways making requests for equipment that directly aligns with the CTE course sequence and classroom instruction in a priority/growth industry sector will be funded first. If you can demonstrate a clear connection to your CTE course sequence and classroom instruction, this would be allowable. Capital equipment must be reviewed and approved by CDE prior to purchase. .

     

     

    Can funds be used in the Marketing Sales and Service sector and Entrepreneurship pathway to purchase a silk screen T-shirt printer for CTSO t-shirt making as well as in the Virtual Business selling t-shirts?  

    Equipment must align with the course sequence and content being taught, not for the CTSO.

     

     

    Can funding be used in the Marketing Sales and service sector and Entrepreneurship pathway to purchase still and video cameras to produce commercials and advertisements for Virtual Enterprise businesses? 

    There does not appear to be a direct alignment of the equipment request to the CTE course sequence. Pathways making requests for equipment that directly aligns with the CTE course sequence and classroom instruction would be funded first.

     

     

    Can funds be used in the Marketing Sales and Service sector and Entrepreneurship pathway to purchase large format printers to make posters of their virtual business products?    

    Pathways making requests for equipment that directly aligns with the CTE course sequence and classroom instruction would be funded first. If you can demonstrate a clear connection to your CTE course sequence and classroom instruction, this would be allowable.

     

     

    Would the CTEIG fund security door or security alarms for rooms where expensive CTEIG equipment is stored?         

    No, security of equipment purchased with CTEIG, as with Perkins, is the responsibility of the school and district. If security systems are not in place, the items should not be purchased.

     

     

    Or if a school requests funds for 30 desktop computers for a total of $60,000. The school then must fund $60,000 for that CTE pathway just for computers for the next 5 years?         

    Equipment expenditures do not require annual match, but the upkeep of the equipment and funding to support the pathway should be provided.

     

     

    Or instead does it mean that the school must keep that CTE pathway open and computer equipment in use by CTE teachers and CTE students for the next 5 years?     

    This is accurate. If any of the computers stop working, it would be the responsibility of the school to replace that single item.
