    Rural Technology Pilot (RTECH)

     

    Purpose 

    HB 2864 establishes a pilot program for a state grant to finance technology-based supplemental instruction to students at the sixth through 12th grade levels at participating campuses.

    The grant funds must be used to provide technology-based supplemental instruction for eligible students. Permissible expenditures under the program include costs incurred to provide: research-based instructional support; teacher training; academic tutoring or counseling; distance learning opportunities that use the Internet and are aligned with the essential knowledge and skills adopted under Section 28.002 for the subject areas of English language arts; social studies; mathematics, science, and languages other than English, as applicable; and distance learning opportunities that enable students to earn college credit in the subject areas of English language arts; social studies; mathematics, science, or languages other than English.

    In the past, R-Tech was funded as a rider to the General Appropriations Act. Additional funding for future R-Tech grants is subject to appropriations by the Legislature.
