Existing law creates the California Technology Assistance Project
administered by the State Department of Education to provide a

consortia that work collaboratively with school districts and county
offices of education to meet locally defined educational needs that
can be effectively addressed with the use of technology. Existing law

school district or county office of education in each region of the
California Technology Assistance Project to act as the lead agency to
administer the services of that region, specifies duties of the
department for this program, and authorizes school districts, county
offices of education, and state special schools to participate in
grant programs related to education technology. Under existing law,
these provisions remain in effect only until January 1, 2014.
This bill would extend that date to January 1, 2017.
