District Promotion of Technology…

Posted: May 3, 2013 in Uncategorized

What district policies, procedures, and resources support use of technology to enhance teaching and promote student learning, and to support efficient district/school school management and operations, fiscal management, and staff productivity?

The district has in place a staff technology usage agreement form, and wireless technology usage agreement form, and an iPad usage agreement form for all staff to complete. Students also complete a student technology usage. All these foms are part of the Board policy for use of technology.
Resources used to support technology come from e-rate funds, general funds, Title IA & Title IVB grants, and section 31a funds. Title IIA funds and general funds are used to pay for professional development in the use of technology in instruction, including some instruction given by staff members to their peers.
The technology director works closely with the business manager and superintendent to allocate general funds and e-rate funds, and additionally with the curriculum director on the Title and 31a grants. Allocations are based on a needs assessment performed annually by the technology committee and school improvement committee.
