2 REQUIRED SUBSTANTIVE COMPONENTS OF THE LOCAL SCHOOL DISTRICT TECHNOLOGY PLAN Schools, school districts, and libraries that want to apply for Schools and Libraries support, commonly referred to as "E-rate," must first prepare a technology plan. Beginning with FY2011, technology plans are required only for Priority 2 services (Internal Connections and Basic Maintenance of Internal Connections). An approved technology plan sets out how information technology and telecommunications infrastructure will be used to achieve educational goals, specific curriculum reforms, or library service improvements. A technology plan designed to improve education should cover the entire funding year (July 1 to June 30) but not more than three years. The plan must contain the following elements: Goals and realistic strategy for using telecommunications and information technology A professional development strategy An assessment of telecommunication services, hardware, software, and other services needed Ongoing evaluation process Policies The technology plan must be approved by a USAC-certified technology plan approver before discounted services can begin. The state is the certified technology plan approver for libraries and public schools. August,

5 CASWELL COUNTY SCHOOLS Technology Plan Vision Statement Vision Statement The development and implementation of a district wide Technology Plan will support and enhance the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction strategic priorities of Shared Services Model, Universal Access to Personal Teaching and Learning Devices, Access to Digital Teaching and Learning Resources, Model of Technology-Enabled Professional Development and 21 st Century Leadership. Our plan will greatly impact the structure of education and administrative practices in our schools. All these areas will be carefully coordinated to take the best advantage of this investment of funds, work and energy. Improving student learning is the main reason to have instructional technology in today s schools. The goal of supporting learning with technology cannot be based on an event, but rather on a coordinated evolutionary continuum. We further envision all students possessing the individual and collaborative skills necessary to be successful in a technologically rich society where information in content areas is changing on a regular basis. The goal of Caswell County Schools is to create a technology rich environment and to facilitate experiences in each school and department that enhance student learning and increase staff efficiency. This environment and these experiences will provide all students and staff with the communication, information, and lifelong learning skills necessary to become effective and productive members of an increasingly complex global society. 5

6 CASWELL COUNTY SCHOOLS Technology Plan - Strategic Priorities With the guidance and support of the Information Technology Department and the implementation of the Technology Strategic Plan, Caswell County Schools has been able to incorporate a constantly increasing amount of technology infused in the work of administrators, teachers, and students, as indicated in our last State Annual Media and Technology Report, collected in July of 2013, where the computer ratio per student as well as the number of resources at the schools continues to improve. With this reality, it is our responsibility to provide the best strategic plan to ensure equity is achieved using State School Technology Funds, other state funds, federal funds, and local funds as the Constitution of the State of North Carolina, in Article VII, mandates that...equal opportunities shall be provided for all students. Equal access to technology and 21st century opportunities are critical to ensuring the success of our students. The integration of 21st Century tools will prepare students to be career and college ready. Research shows that students exposure to various technologies is directly correlated to improved literacy and leads to growing confidence in their abilities to use technology in a meaningful way. Access to teaching and learning technologies does not necessarily lead to equity for staff and students. These technologies must be accompanied by ample professional development. Likewise, high quality 21st century school and district leadership must also be our priority to fulfill the promise that all students graduate career and college ready. Caswell County Schools recognizes the importance and necessity of the five over-arching priorities that the State Commission on School Technology has identified for all students to be future ready, to possess equal opportunities for taking full advantage of information and technology resources and tools, and to be taught in a way that maximizes the effective use of these technologies: Shared Services Model Universal Access to Personal Teaching and Learning Devices Access to Digital Teaching and Learning Resources, Including Digital Textbooks Model of Technology-Enabled Professional Development 21 st Century Leadership for each LEA These five priorities will be addressed in the following plan. 6

7 Strategic Priority 1: A Statewide Shared Services Model Current Status and Moving Forward Caswell County Schools has been able to develop the needed infrastructure to allow users access to multiple technologies, educational and administrative resources through the school network. The Wide Area Network, formed by point-to-point microwave signals, has been increased in the past year to 150 MPS to each one of the remote sites. This increase in the speed translated in an actual reduction of costs for the lease of the WAN, of which, e-rate funds paid ninety per cent. We have also increased the speed to the Internet Connection to 100 MPS and reduced costs of management for these services by becoming direct customers of the North Carolina Research and Education Network (NCREN) who is now our Internet Provider. Caswell County Schools has relied upon hosted cloud services; these services include Learning Management Systems and Renaissance Products for reading and math, Web Hosting, professional development, media and library databases and more. These new forms of applications and services have shown the advantages of recent advances in virtualization and cloud computing. From our previous 2-year Tech Plan the following goals have been accomplished for this area in our School district: 1. Goal: Implement the use of Windows based ISIS System in 100% of schools for budgeting management, purchasing and reporting that allows blending of funds and planning. Responsible: IT and Finance Directors. 2.

12 Strategic Priority 3: Statewide Access to Digital Teaching and Learning Resources, Including Digital Textbooks Current Status and Moving Forward In Caswell County Schools, teachers and students have been provided access to digital online resources such as Study Island, Renaissance Learning Application for Reading and Math, Education City and the repository on NCWiseOwl where students access quality research tools, periodicals and curriculum support materials. In addition to these, LEARN NC has also been implemented for several years as part of the Staff Development and classroom digital resources for all areas. Discovery Education videos have also been a part of the materials provided for the teachers use in the classrooms, particularly in the middle and high school levels. Digital Textbooks have not been within the financial reach of our district; however, one of the driving forces behind making digital textbooks affordable is the Open Education Resources movement. A technology-enabled initiative, the OER movement is an effort to create and share teaching and learning content that is free and open on a global level. Another way for us to have access to more affordable resources in the near future will be NC Education Cloud, which will include a platform to enhance access to digital resources and content. From our previous 2-year Tech Plan the following goals have been accomplished for this area in our School district: 1. Goal: Provide resources for Media and Technology Staff and some teachers to participate in at least 6 hours of training for the use of any digital content aligned to Common Core and NC Essential Standards.

18 Strategic Priority 5: 21st Century Leadership for All Schools and Districts Essential Questions Are your LEA/Charter leaders prepared to lead and create a vision for 21st century education? Are mechanisms in place for school leaders to create 21st century learning cultures? Are professional growth programs/opportunities available to prepare teachers and administrators to lead 21st century learning environments? Current Status/Moving Forward Creating 21st century learning environments is not about investing only in technology but also investing in people and creating a culture appropriate for 21st century learning. Caswell County Schools leaders have laid the foundation for 21 st century learning by establishing and maintaining technology programs, resources and support, but there is still a lot to accomplish. We, as a district, must work together with the State in order to continue planning and implementing a successful education program grounded in the elements of 21 st century skills and aligned with high-tech work environment and global economy. Our mission in this area is to assure that our schools create a culture that embraces change as dynamic continuous improvement. In this direction we could, with the support of DPI, promote and participate in the ISTE National Education Technology Standards for all educators: provide professional development opportunities for increasing the skills of our principals, directors and administrators to facilitate teaching, learning, and working in a 21st century education environment; determine and promote techniques and practices for transforming the interpersonal skills necessary to nurture and grow productive and balanced workplace relationships in virtual, high-technological environments; and, identify and promote opportunities for educators to upgrade professional skills and certifications and develop skills needed for participation in the online learning community.
