2 III. SYSTEM-WIDE GOALS AND OBJECTIVES Instructional Technology A. GOAL I: Goals and Strategies Objective 1.1: Technology will be used to improve teaching, student learning, and analyze data. Students and teachers will be better prepared to internalize technological skills. The plan for integrating technology into schools is aligned with Tennessee Technology Standards, the school and or district's vision for technology education. In addition, these goals and objectives are a significant part of the district Strategic Plan. Goals having objectives of this plan are designed to improve the academic performance of all students. This district plan includes any additions or revisions as required by the Tennessee State Department of Education. The Office of Technology resources provide an electronic capability that meets local, state, and federal requirements. The Office of Technology will assure processes that allow sharing of information with all constituency groups through a contract with ENA (Education Networks of America) Familiarize staff with Tennessee Technology Standards that are the foundation for the implementation of technology into the curriculum. These standards are available online and accessible to every teacher at Explore education technologies and utilization of technologies that enhance existing curricula and promote targeted advanced thinking skills Provide a technology-rich learning environment that is viable within schools.
3 Assure that all classrooms have adequate access to computers and Internet capability to enhance a technology curriculum that emphasizes higher order thinking skills, complex problem solving, and cognitive research Assess student scores by employing software that encourages improved student performance. Benchmarks and Technology Standards identify success provide benchmarks for appropriate levels of proficiency Utilize Thinklink software three times during the school year to benchmark student performance in reading, math, and science content in order to provide interventions relative to result of these test administrations Use student performance on benchmark tests to promote active learning and individualize instruction Enhance coursework through active student use of technological resources, such as Internet and multimedia experiences when appropriate. Objective 1.2: Educators, parents, students, and community members support the schools' initiatives in the uses of technology Each school is encouraged to implement technology programs designed to complement each school's improvement plan. ].2.2. Work collaboratively among teaching staff to design technologysupported projects. This collaboration is reflected at an appropriate time as an element of the model for Teacher Evaluation Utilize software accompanied by training and implemented systemwide, such as A+, Aimsweb, ThinkLink, and Discovery Education Reflect authentic uses of technology in lesson plans.
4 Include strategies for implementing Tennessee Technology Standards into appropriate elements of the Teacher Evaluation model Connect technologies programs to the curriculum of feeder schools through software such as ThinkLink. Objective 1.3: TCAP testing results are the benchmark for evaluation of the effectiveness of technology integrated into the curriculum. Although this is difficult to measure, we believe the integration of technology is significant in schools that show improvement in student academic performance and migration toward proficiency in major content areas Analyze Adequate Yearly Progress in major content areas and among targeted populations to serve as one indicator for evaluation of technological success. The district Technology Director determines what most appropriately describes technological proficiency since there are no well-defined measures of success in this area, other than TESS (Technology in Education System Survey). Objective 1.4: Title II, Ed Tech funds and E-rate discounts are used to improve the academic achievement and technological literacy of all students, and to improve the capacity of all teachers to integrate technology effectively into curriculum and instruction and analyze data Apply Title II, Ed Tech funds to provide performance measurement systems at each elementary school and provide opportunity for district coaches/teacher leaders to attend technology conference Technology Director, elementary and high school supervisors collaborate to acquire curriculum software, such as Aimsweb, A+, and Thinklink.
5 Apply E-rate funding to establish a firewall that greatly diminishes infiltration of patterns related to virus activity. This firewall protects all schools and Central Office computers by shutting down infected computers that interfere with processes throughout the district's network Establish a Tech User Group training program which would afford teachers with an opportunity to experiment with new technology, create and share technology resources, and foster a technology professional learning community within schools Objective 1.5: The school district takes a proactive approach to ensure that all students and teachers have increased access to technology.

These schools are Title I schools that also receive grant funds for equipment in addition to local and Title I funds. These schools are identified through the STaR (School Technology and Readiness) Chart reports located at in addition to progress relative to TESS (Technology in Education System Survey) results as they compare to State performance goals Schedule workshop sessions beginning SY 09 (continuing) relative to training on Activ Inspire Promethean software which promotes the use of innovative strategies for the delivery of specialized curricula through the use of technology Hire an instructional technology coach in It remains desirable to hire additional coaches as funding is available.
6 Purchase additional high-capacity computers, tablets, and interactive boards for K -12 Special Education classrooms through a partnership between Office of Technology and Office of Special Education. Objective 1.6: The district promotes and encourages the development and use of innovative strategies for the delivery of specialized curricula through the infusion of technology Continue scheduled meetings of Career Technical Advisory Board that brings together business decision makers, elected officials, and education personnel who know the influence of this program Explore and identify research-based technology strategies and programs based on an annual Teacher Survey that reflects areas to be strengthened and that are related to goals, objectives, and strategies of the district Strategic Plan and Tennessee Technology Standards. These programs are implemented once exit outcomes are established and costs are defined Reflect innovative uses of technology through Teacher Evaluation components and lesson plans. Principals in this district require staff members to continuously associate technology skills within curricula. ].6.4. Combine school efforts to encourage the in-house sharing of strategies and programs. This collaboration extends into Teacher Evaluation components Schedule ongoing system-wide staff development opportunities each year that allow professional staff to accelerate every level of technological skill Implement Assistive Technology when appropriately determined through the Office of Special Education Incorporate technological literacy skills across the curriculum.
7 Implement Distance Learning, expected to begin service during the school year. Seek funding for virtual field trips and seek additional equipment through the RUS Grant Provide wireless capability to be utilized in all schools as e-rate and local funding become available. l Continue to deploy fiber connectivity to all schools as infrastructure and funding become available Install Promethean Boards per request of schools. An increase of these systems is prevalent in Monroe County.
