If we have a school that had to get internet for their students but had to use operational funds to pay for it can we apply for this grant and do a journal entry to put the expense in the grant?
Dolores Fuentes
31:34
Can this information and application be sent directly to our Principal? I'm not sure if she has this information or not, but I am only the Tech Coordinator and do not have the authorization to fill this out.
Jeff Gephart
34:15
I apologize if this has already been answered, but will the State take a credit for a portion of these funds against our SEG similar to what happened with the CARES Act funds?
lbarraza
35:38
Can this be utilized for services\devices already purchased for students?
Rob Hunter

Thanks for streamlining this app and making it intersect with CARES/ESSER.

What about answering the six questions in the directions? Do we need to upload our responses?
Kathy Weinman
38:23
What about students whose homes may have internet, but the internet is inadequate to support their online learning? Can we use these funds to help these students to obtain adequate internet access?
Dr. McConnell

Can you just give a quick definition of "indirect cost"?
Diane Gunn Miles
39:10
Charter schools fill this out themselves, it is not filled out by their authorizer (APS) correct?
Dixie Vejil
39:28
Can we use our usual consultation form that we normally use.
Laura Adkins
41:19
Directions Page 7, #3 - says to enter the Child Count from low-income families residing in participating Title 1 school attendance areas with public or non. So I need to put the district Title numbers in the child count box?
Sylvy Galvan de Lucero
41:19
Can this be used for Monitoring programs for safe internet usage being installed on all computers or is it just internet connectivity?
gauthierv

Can you please talk about Broadband 4 Students and what that site is used for ?
lblanco

Can you please review on how an invoice would be paid from a student who attends a private school? I understand the district cannot reimburse the school. Please clarify.
Carol.Culver
43:02
@Dixie -- you are not required to use the consultation form attached to the application. You can use a district form as long as it includes the same information as the PED form. Thanks!
Tamara Allison
43:04
I have the same questions as Ibarraza...Can this be utilized for services\devices already purchased for students?
mcarrara
43:06
Do the hot spots have to be CIPA complaint?
Carol.Culver
43:06
@Laura: we recommend that you use the same ChildCount and private school low-income student numbers as in your CARES and Title I applications. Call me if you have questions 505-490-5918. Thanks!
mcarrara

Are we required to purchase through the portal?

has anyone had issues with the budget on zeroing out?
Jessica Gutierrez
51:09
When is the deadline to submit application
Delton Martin

Yes, I believe it's not supposed to as no other allocations boxes are available.
lbarraza
52:13
what if the monitoring is included with the hotspots
Delton Martin
52:25
It does zero out if you click on update.
Carol.Culver
52:35
@LIsa B: For private school students, the LEA would arrange service directly with the Internet service provider (ISP), and would pay the ISP directly.
Dr. McConnell

May we provide internet or hotspots to homeless shelters, motels, etc…where students are living? May we provide hotspots for students to use at daycares? Lastly, can these funds be used to add access points to the front of school buildings so that homeless students can connect from the parking lots if necessary?
Sarah Tario
58:00
I always have tons of trouble with SharePoint and getting in - does anyone have advice for how to convince it to let me in?
Jvanna Hanks II
