Secure PDN Grant Equipment

Over the last two years schools have received a significant amount of technology hardware.
Please incorporate this equipment into your school’s inventory. Your school’s inventory should be completed annually. Please make every effort to secure and maintain the Title IID PDN equipment, as it will continue to be used for grant activities. If the equipment is lost or stolen then it must be reported to the police and copies of the report need to be presented to our office. We will be conducting an inventory of equipment distributed through PDN Title IID Grant Funds during the 2011-2012 school year.
