Additional Elements:
The No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB) states that districts must have long-range education technology plans to apply for program
funds and that the plan address specific evaluation requirements. Describe the process and accountability measures the district will
use to evaluate the extent to which activities funded by an NCLB program are effective in integrating technology into curricula and
instruction, increasing the ability of teachers to teach, and enabling students to reach challenging State academic standards.
The District Technology Committee will meet yearly to monitor progress of the technology plan. Progress measurement tools
identified with each objective will be used to review and evaluate the status and effectiveness of technology in each of the five
Technology Focus Areas. The following process and accountability measures will be used to monitor and evaluate this plan: 1. Each
objective and strategy have a projected 'Progress' and 'Target' percentage of completion. The person(s) responsible for each
objective and strategy will provide progress reports to the District Technology Committee. If the projected 'Progress' and 'Target'
are not met the responsible person(s) will meet with the Technology Committee for reevaluation of the Objective and/or Strategy
to determine steps needed to meet the 'Progress' and 'Target'. 2. The Technology Committee will yearly review the curriculum for
integration of technology skills. Any skills not met will be reevaluated for integration. 3. The Board of Education is updated yearly
on the implementation of the tech plan with this information available for employees, parents and the community through the
district web site.




The Universal Service Fund E-rate Program states that district long-range plans must address five essential elements. The district
provides assurances to DESE that the technology plan contains the following:
• Clear goals and realistic strategies for using telecommunications and information technology to improve education services;

• Professional development strategies to ensure that staff know to use these new technologies to improve education services;

• Assessment of the telecommunication services, hardware, software, and other services that will be needed to improve education
services;

• Sufficient budget to acquire and support the non-discounted elements of the plan: the hardware, software, professional
development and other services that will be needed to implement the strategy; and

• Evaluation process that enables the school to monitor progress toward the specified goals and make mid-course corrections in
response to new developments and opportunities as they arise.
