Title IV Technology Waiver

The Tennessee Department of Education is seeking a waiver from the requirements in section 4109(b) of ESSA. Tennessee requests this requirement be waived and allow LEAs to utilize more than 15 percent for technology, where appropriate, beginning with funding for the 2019-20 school year. This change would impact Title IV programming among LEAs in Tennessee in purchasing devices, equipment, platforms, and software applications in order to address technology readiness shortfalls and in carrying out blended learning projects. The complete Title IV waiver can be found here. Public comments may be sent to by January 17.
