7 1.2 BACKGROUND The Oklahoma City Public School District is the largest school District in the State of Oklahoma. The District has over 42,000 students (including charter schools) with an average daily membership of 36,000 students with approximately 6,000 full and part-time employees, including 3,500 certified staff members. The district has 78 school sites, 12 charter school sites, 14 satellite facilities and 5 support facilities. The District has converted its network to Microsoft s Active Directory. This has created an AD structure connecting all District sites through its Wide-Area Network (WAN). See Section for a description of the District s WAN. With the passage of MAPS for Kids, the Oklahoma City Public School District is receiving 52 million dollars to improve technology in its schools. These funds will be used to phase in technology over the 9 years of the MAPS for Kids project. With the passage of the 2007 District Bond Issue, the District will receive 21 million dollars for technology over 5-7 years. To stay current with technology the District has used and uses a variety of funds, including Title I, Title II-D, Carl Perkins (CTE), Special Education, ARRA, and others. 1.3 DISTRICT TECHNOLOGY PLAN Improved Technology Standards and Policies Standards have been developed and put into place; however, there is a need for continuous revision of standards and policies, as technology and performance constantly change. Technology Implementation Process The District will take input from stakeholders via the Technology Advisory Committee. All schools and departments construct a site or department-based technology plan that is incorporated into their Campus Improvement Plan. The plans must incorporate the technology focuses of the District s Technology Vision, Strategic Aims, Technology Goals, ISTE NETS for Administrators & Teachers, and PASS. Improved Access to Technology The Plan provides guidance for the District s Acceptable Use Policy and how the District will provide equitable access of technology to all students, staff, and administration. With the implementation of AD, access to network home directories and other services is provided over the District s WAN. Improved Technology Training The District must continually improve the technology proficiency of our students, teachers, and staff. This is accomplished by providing a cohesive, broad-based curriculum for all students, staff, and administration. Instruction is provided to ensure that all students access, evaluate, and use electronic information effective and efficiently. Improved Technology Integration, Support, and Security The Plan provides guidance on how to enhance the organizational support for the integration of technology via the Lead Technology Educator (LTE) program. Direction is given on how to maintain a collaborative support team consisting of the LTEs in the OKCPS District Technology Plan 2 Revised 3/25/2011

8 schools and the IT Department. The plan also provides measures on how to protect technology equipment. Improved Business and Student Systems The Plan establishes purchasing practices that meet the District s application-specific hardware, software, and database standards. It requires that all new district-wide applications be SIF compliant and be integrated into the District s Zone Integration Server (ZIS). Online access to the student information system (SIS) is provided as well as an automated notification system. The plan also sets regulations for a district-wide disaster recovery plan. 1.4 IMPLEMENTATION PLAN/OVERSIGHT Each school will create a Campus Improvement Plan, which will include technology implementation. These plans are reviewed and evaluated by the TAC and IT. Recommendations are made for improvements and assistance will be given to each site to follow the guidance of the District Technology Plan. Projects are created based on priority of the District and funding levels. The MAPS for Kids nine (9) years funding plan is included as an appendix and is reviewed yearly as changes in the District occur. 1.5 COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT Community involvement is imperative to the success of this technology plan. Community members serve on the TAC and are involved in the annual review of the District Technology Plan. The community is encouraged to form partnerships with its local schools in the utilization of technology and assist in acquiring requested technology. 1.6 FINANCIAL IMPACT Technology funding for the most part has been site-based, budgeted through a variety of funds. The MAPS for Kids bond issue and sales tax, a 9-year project, is providing 52 million dollars for the purchase of technology. This has allowed for improved technology at each site. Each site also uses its local funding (i.e., Title I, etc.) to supplement the MAPS for Kids funding. Each school should budget its funding and incorporate it into its Technology Plan. The District needs to address the inequality of technology funding for schools that do not receive Title I money. These sites need an annual technology budget to help them stay current with technology. An annual dedicated fund needs to be established for each of the technology functions i.e. networks, applications, District-wide instructional software, computers and peripherals. These funds need to be identified in the IT annual budgets. 1.7 COMMUNICATION OF PLAN The District Technology Plan is communicated throughout the District; it is also communicated to the patrons of the District. This is done by use of , internet meetings, and media. Once approved by the Board, an will be sent to all District employees with a link to the Technology Plan on the District s web site. Once school starts, a flyer will be sent home with all students with the link to the Technology Plan on the District s web site and OKCPS District Technology Plan 3 Revised 3/25/2011

9 notification that if a parent wants a copy he/she may request one from the school office. A notice will be sent to area media that the District has updated its Technology Plan and bullet details will be given. The TAC will hold a meeting open to all staff and patrons once per semester to present the Technology Plan and to gather input from the attendees. 1.8 CURRENT ASSESSMENT Computer Inventory The District has over 19,000 desktop and laptops computers, over 1500 LCD projectors, over 1600 Smartboards, over 900 printers, and 500 digital cameras Network Architecture The OKCPS Wide Area Network (WAN) consists of leased lines currently provided by Cox Communications. There is a 10 Gbps fiber connection and an OC-12 fiber connection providing a backbone between 2 main data centers. Each school site has a local area network (LAN) designed in a star topology with a 1Gbps Cisco switch and an B,G,or N wireless access point in every classroom that is connected back to a core switch located in the building s MDF. The core switch is connected to a Cisco router. The Wide Area Network (WAN) consists of a leased 1Gbps line at each Secondary School and a leased OC-3 line at each elementary school. The leased fiber optic lines from Cox Communication between each site are connected with an ATM or an Ethernet connection to the school s Cisco router. All traffic over the Wide Area Network (WAN) is routed back to the central office data center. Centralized Internet access is provided to all sites from the data center to Onenet, the district s ISP, via a 1Gbps connection. All Internet traffic is filtered at the central office through the use of a software product called M86. Barracuda appliances are also incorporated at the central site to provide SPAM filtering for all traffic Key Applications The following is a list of major core applications installed in the District.
