Why are we qualified to help you?

The DLA process is based on the successful Utah model that began in 1990, and has led to dozens of #1 ranking in economic and education standings over the past 23 years.

Utah passed 67% of digital learning legislation in 2013, compared to 22% nationally. And DLA is positioned to help you by providing research, succesful bill templates, model RFP’s, and policy advice.

  • DLA has the most comprehensive knowledge of emerging education technology through our strategic partnerships and association members. With this clearinghouse of knowledge, we help lead your state to better education outcomes with the most ROI for your state budget.
  • Legislators who use the formal DLA roadmap get support on the most important education issues in their respective states with concise explanations, analyses, and prioritizations of key education and workforce issues. This saves legislators’ valuable time as you  work to draft and sponsor legislation.
  • DLA gives you the Cliff’s Notes version and Angies list of fast-changing technology that can be made available to the key stakeholders: students, educators, and employers.
  • DLA research exposes state education and economic rankings on issues that are of importance your constituents.. This is important to prioritize what education initiatives will contributed to your state’s current economic growth.
  • DLA informs legislators of new, emerging opportunities to most effectively include digital learning in education and workforce development, and spells out the ROI to states after redirecting education investments.
  • Legislators are assisted in choosing by issue topic which legislation is most important to introduce. DLA then helps legislators identify the best digital learning solutions to solve your issue.
  • Built on the 20-plus-year success of the Utah Model, legislation assisted based on a “scarcity and competition” among schools. With a limited number of technology licenses, and an open RFP competition process among vendors, all parties take ownership and deploy the new educational learning tools at an optimum level.
  • DLA establishes third party assements of products to monitor student outcomes. This includes managing and crafting RFPs with statewide departments who are tasked with creating RFPs and implementing new systems. Legislation should identify a team overseeing governance and accountability, with STEM and technology driven company CEO’s, State Economic Development leaders, and legislators.. This governance modelwill include oversight on how funds are used and allocated, the RFP process, implementation, accountability, assessment, and transparency.. Measurements for education outcomes include graduate employment that is aligned with employer workforce needs.
