Incentives

Based on these final numbers, the incentive per mobile device (notebook, chromebook or tablet) is $51.05 and the incentive per desktop is $25.53.

Incentive checks were distributed by Copper Country ISD the week of 11/24/2014. Incentive funds can be spent on any technology-related purchases and must be spent by 6/30/2015. To see the letter that went out with the incentive checks that contains examples of allowable expenditures, click here. For questions about what the funds can spent on, contact Tim Hall at thall@gomasa.org .

Regarding the revenue source, districts need to record the revenue in the general fund under major class code 317 (state restricted grant funds received from other public schools), because you received it from another ISD who received it from the State of Michigan. As with any TRIG-related accounting, make sure to use the State Grant Code 210x.
