Tex. Educ. Code Section 32.301
Establishment of Program


The commissioner may establish a grant program under which grants are awarded to school districts and open-enrollment charter schools to implement a technology lending program to provide students access to equipment necessary to access and use electronic instructional materials.


A school district or an open-enrollment charter school may apply to the commissioner to participate in the grant program. In awarding grants under this subchapter for each school year, the commissioner shall consider:


the availability of existing equipment to students in the district or school;


other funding available to the district or school; and


the district’s or school’s technology plan.


The commissioner may determine the terms of a grant awarded under this section, including limits on the grant amount and approved uses of grant funds.


The commissioner may recover funds not used in accordance with the terms of a grant by withholding amounts from any state funds otherwise due to the school district or open-enrollment charter school.
