Educational technology foundations. Provides local school boards with the authority to establish, by themselves or with other parties or as regional efforts with other school boards, educational technology foundations. These foundations will be for the express purpose of implementing a public/private partnership to expand access to and improve the quality of educational technology in a school division. Certain precautions must be taken, e.g., the school board must review and approve the articles of incorporation and bylaws and establish a system of accounting to protect public funds. Education technology is defined to include any software, hardware, or other equipment, or technical assistance or instruction in the use of any software, hardware or other equipment which is required to implement a local school board's approved plan for educational technology or the Board of Education's Six-Year Educational Technology Plan for Virginia. This bill is a recommendation of the Commission on Educational Infrastructure.
