These are the steps:
- Step 1 ~ Email to Inquire about the Availability of a Stipend
To support qualifying CA state LEAs in adopting TED, there are a limited number of $600 stipends available this fiscal year, on a first come first served basis. Email or call Marin Brown firstname.lastname@example.org or 707-481-9139 to inquire about the availability of stipends, and to have her reserve one while you complete the Adoption process.
- Step 2 ~ Choose Your TED Configuration
Page 2 provides a worksheet for deciding which TED configuration (single computer, server, or hosted on a network) will work best for your organization, to help determine the Filemaker licenses that will need to be purchased for running TED.
- Step 3 ~ Apply for a Stipend
Pages 4-10 provide the stipend instructions and forms, including an MOU, License Agreement, Invoice, and W9. Print and complete these forms. Send in the originals.
- Step 4 ~ Purchase Filemaker Software
Use your TED Configuration sheet and the details on page 3 to determine which Filemaker licenses to purchase. Place your order.
- Step 5 ~ Preparing for TED's Arrival
Get out the popcorn and have your staff watch two movies and fill out the 3 Things to Do Before TED Arrives worksheet on pages 11-12. Meet as a group and finalize your Funding Sources, Topics, and Roles choices, so you’re ready to customize and optimize TED for your organization.
