Section 16-61C-6

Superintendent to allocate grant funds; recoupment of replaced state funds.

In the event that in any fiscal year prior to the complete expansion of the ASIM Program, grant funds are received as funding support for the ASIM Program, the State Superintendent of Education shall allocate the grant funds in an equitable manner among the several ASIM Program networks to replace a like amount of state funds. The state superintendent shall also recoup the replaced state funds previously allocated among the networks and deposit the state funds to the credit of the Education Technology Fund, to be expended at the recommendation of the superintendent upon the approval of the State Board of Education for further expansion of the ASIM Program, according to the approved schedule.

In the event that grant funds are received after the expansion of the ASIM Program is completed, the recouped state funds shall be deposited to the credit of the Education Technology Fund to be expended at the recommendation of the state superintendent upon approval of the State Board of Education for any purpose stated within an approved statewide plan for the acquisition and use of advanced technology in the public schools.
