CA Races to the Top - CUE at the starting line....

CUE was present at today's regional CA Race to the Top meeting. State leaders shared application goals and strategies, most notably that any District or County LEA may participate if they complete a Memorandum of Understanding with the state, as long as it is signed by their Superintendent, School Board President and Teacher's Union President.

CUE is pleased to offer its services as a partner in any and all of those districts interested in participating. Contact CUE Executive Director, Mike Lawrence, if you are interested. The application should be available from ed.gov in the next few weeks.

CUE Continues the Call for Distribution of Stimulus (ARRA) Funds
June 2, 2010 UPDATE:
As of now, the EETT/ARRA funds are still being held back by the California Legislature....[but] the issue of the distribution of the EETT/ARRA competitive funding is now to be resolved by the budget conference committee representing the
Senate and Assembly Education Finance Committees. Read the details....and send your own letter!

California's great 'Bait and Switch' trick:
California directed schools and districts across the state to spend millions to support Educational Technology, then failed to distribute the over $72M in stimulus funds to pay for it! Now legislators want to create a whole new program that doesn't conform to state or federal guidelines and would delay getting the money to districts until 2011! CETPA, CCSESA, ACSA, the Children's Partnership and others have joined CUE
in this months-long effort to immediately release these funds for their intended purpose. CUE urges its membership, and all Californians to join
us by contacting your legislator TODAY and end this reproachable delay in
distributing funds to our cash-strapped school districts.
