The Maine Learning Technology Initiative Agreement with Apple Computer, Inc. is in the final stages of review. We recognize that we are much later in the calendar year than we had hoped to be at this stage of the new deployment. We appreciate your patience and attention to this information and these required actions. In order for the Department and Apple Computer, Inc. to prepare, deliver, and implement the next phase of the program, it is imperative that the local coordination and State coordination work be closely integrated to prepare for the Fall. Please review the materials below and return the necessary forms and paperwork by no later than July 7, 2006. 

For all Public Grade 7 & 8 Schools, please download “MLTI Grade 7 & 8 Packet” at: http://www.maine.gov/mlti/deployment/  

For MLTI Expansion at Local Cost: public grades K-6, 9-12, or all non-public schools, please download “MLTI Expansion at Local Cost Packet” at: http://www.maine.gov/mlti/deployment/

If your SAU has an outstanding balance with Apple Computer, Inc. from the first MLTI program, you must address this with Apple Computer, Inc. prior to July 7, 2006 to participate in this program for the next four years.

The MLTI Project team at the Department of Education will be hosting several one-hour conference calls for any questions around this process. Please call the following number during one of these times:
