District Technology Plan   

arrow Previous bar Next arrow

The Board of Trustees recognizes that technological resources can enhance student achievement by increasing student access to information, supporting teacher effectiveness, and facilitating the administration of student assessments. Effective use of technology can also increase the efficiency of the district's noninstructional operations and governance.

(cf. 6162.51 - State Academic Achievement Tests)

The Superintendent or designee shall develop, for Board approval, a comprehensive three-year technology plan based on an assessment of current uses of technology in the district and an identification of future needs. The Superintendent or designee may appoint an advisory committee consisting of a variety of staff and community stakeholders to assist with the development of the technology plan.

(cf. 0400 - Comprehensive Plans)

(cf. 1220 - Citizen Advisory Committees)

(cf. 9140 - Board Representatives)

The plan shall be integrated into the district's vision and goals for student learning and shall contain research-based strategies and methods for the effective use of technology. When required for state or federal grant programs in which the district participates, the plan shall also address all components required for receipt of such grants.

(cf. 0000 - Vision)

(cf. 0200 - Goals for the School District)

(cf. 0460 - Local Control and Accountability Plan)

(cf. 6000 - Concepts and Roles)

The Superintendent or designee shall ensure that any use of technological resources in the district protects the private and confidential information of students and employees in accordance with law.

(cf. 4112.6/4212.6/4312.6 - Personnel Files)

(cf. 5125 - Student Records)
