Long-Range Technology Plan


Funding Program:Computers For Learning

Funding Source: U. S. Federal Services Administration




About the program


In order to advocate and promote the reuse of computers, GSA is proud to sponsor the new re-engineered Computers for Learning (CFL) website. The CFL program assists federal agencies to meet the requirements of Executive Order (EO) 12999, "Educational Technology: Ensuring Opportunity for All Children in the Next Century".




Schools and educational nonprofit organizations located in the United States, the U.S. Virgin Islands, American Samoa, Guam, the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, or the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, can receive computer equipment through the CFL Program. A school is eligible to participate if it is a public, private, or parochial school serving some portion of the pre-kindergarten through grade 12 population. Day care centers must provide a state approved preschool curriculum in order to participate.


An educational nonprofit organization must meet four criteria in order to participate. First, it must serve some portion of the pre-kindergarten through grade 12 population. Second, it must give evidence of its nonprofit status by being tax exempt under section 501(c) of the U.S. tax code. Third, it must operate primarily for the purpose of education. If an educational nonprofit organization is "riding" on the 501(c) certification of a parent organization, the parent organization must meet these criteria. Fourth, it must be approved, accredited, or licensed.

Description of project to be funded


As part of the Long Range Technology Plan development, one of our goals at IDEA Public Schools is to increase the current ratio of students per computer in the classroom. Currently, students can access computers in the computer laboratory, but they do not have any computer in the classroom for student use, unless the teacher previously request some laptops.


This Long Range Technology Plan was developed based on the Star Chart for the campus. The objective is as follows:




Our vision for the Infrastructure for Technology key area is:


The IDEA Frontier Academy campus is equipped with the adequate bandwidth for Internet

connection inside all rooms. Computers in the classrooms are available just when a previous

request is made by the teacher. The average students per computer connected to the Internet

is 8. In our vision all classrooms have a ratio of 4 students to 1 access to Internet-connected
