Perth Amboy Public Schools – District Technology Plan 2007 – 2010                      10
     3. Assistive Technology Devices:
     The district employs a variety of assistive technology devices to augment, supplement
     and compliment the educational process for students with special needs. All computer
     systems have the ability to activate the “Accessibility Options” built in to the Microsoft
     operating system. Additionally, the district uses the “Jaws” application to provide
     assistance for the visually impaired. “Big Shot” is another application used to assist the
     visually impaired. Dynavox units are available for students with multiple disabilities.
     FM amplifications units are used assist students with hearing impairments. Computer
     based Braille devices are also available for students with severe visual impairments.
     Specialized keyboard devices are used in place of traditional keyboards & mice.

     4. Website Accessibility:
     The district is very cognizant that Access for disabled users is important, because
     disabled users actually use the Internet at twice the rate of non-disabled users. They are
     more dependent on this medium to gather information efficiently. Perth Amboy has
     implemented a web solution that is compliant with the requirements of Section 508 of the
     American’s with Disabilities Act. The Novus CMS product employs content templates
     that ensure content creators maintain the necessary standards so specialized devices, to
     assist the handicapped, will be able to interpret all of the information on our websites.

     5. Planned Obsolescence:
     The district has developed a cyclical process for replacing outdated equipment. Servers, PCs,
     Printers and Accessories will be replaced on a 5-year life expectancy cycle. When funds
     allow approximately 20% of the district’s hardware will be replaced on an annual basis. Perth
     Amboy has implemented a plan to distribute the outdated equipment to students for their
     home use. We have developed an incentive-based plan to select students who receive these
     systems. This solution not only provides a sensible means for disposing of old equipment, but
     also furthers the educational opportunities for students and parents.

B – Cyber Safety
1.   List the Filtering methods used.
     The district has implemented several products to protect its network, while filtering
     Internet & E-mail for inappropriate content. “School Secure” combines Internet filtering,
     proxy server, firewall, and several other functions to keep students and staff out of
     inappropriate sites. School Secure filters use multiple methods including: URL and
     Domain filtering; Content Phrase filtering; PICS Filtering; MIME Filtering; file extension
     Filtering; Inside and Outside Proxy blocking. In addition, the district uses two other
     products to further manage and control E-mail traffic. Products by SurfControl and
     Symantec work in conjunction to: block SPAM, Malicious E-mail, and inappropriate
     content within e-mails. Heuristic filters are used to comb e-mail content. Student e-mail
     can further be limited to specific sending & receiving groups.

2.   Identify the Acceptable Use Policies (AUP) used for students and staff.
     Include a copy of the AUP with the submission of this tech plan.
     Please refer to Appendix E for the district’s Acceptable Use Policies (AUP)



Perth Amboy Public Schools – District Technology Plan 2007 – 2010                      11
3.    Explain how students are educated about online safety awareness.
      Students are educated about cyber safety and online perils through direct instruction by
      the classroom teacher both prior to and during activities that involve technology and open
      access to the Internet. This formal instruction takes place as developmentally appropriate
      from the early elementary grades through adult settings.
      This anecdotal instruction is supplemented through the use of the District’s “Acceptable
      Use Policy” and the “Internet Safety For Teens and Parents” resource (available on the
      Perth Amboy Public Schools’ website) as instructional material.
      During AY2006-07, the district Supervisor of Technology and Technology Coordinator
      have been trained as trainers in the I-SAFE Internet Safety Education program.
      Consistent with the objectives of this program, separate courses of study will be
      developed for each of the following stakeholders: students (Pre-K through Adult),
      Teachers (Pre-K through Adult), district administrators, and parents / community
      members. The implementation of this program will begin during AY2007-08 and include
      a mechanism to perpetuate and adapt the curriculum as necessary for future needs.

4.    Provide information on how parental resources regarding online safety are
      made available to parents.
      To date, the District’s “Acceptable Use Policy” is provided (in English and Spanish) to
      all parents at the beginning of each school year. Internet safety and protocol are
      discussed at scheduled parent conference nights. Parents are also made aware of the
      “Internet Safety For Teens and Parents” resource available on the District’s website.
      During AY2006-07, the district Supervisor of Technology and Technology Coordinator
      have been trained as trainers in the I-SAFE Internet Safety Education program through I-
      SAFE inc. as part of a grant by the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention
      (Department of Justice). A formal course of study complete with curriculum will be
      developed specifically for parents and community members to be implemented during
      AY2007-08. This course of study will be evaluated and modified regularly to meet the
      dynamic needs of the community.

C - Needs Assessment
 1. Complete a needs assessment for educational technology in your school
district or charter school. Begin by determining current status. Afterwards,
determine the educational needs, prioritize the identified needs and establish
necessary changes through goals and objectives.
a.    Evaluate staff's current practice in integrating technology across the curriculum.
      Currently, all staff have adequate access to administrative and instructional technology
      consistent with goals I, III, and IV of the existing District Technology Plan.
      Additionally, consistent with Goal II of the plan, all district staff have been provided high
      quality professional development opportunities that focus on the appropriate selection
      and use of technology within and beyond instruction.



Perth Amboy Public Schools – District Technology Plan 2007 – 2010                        12
       To date, revised curriculum and planning guides include a resource section that identifies
       technology resources appropriate for the core and supporting material. To ensure that all
       curricular areas incorporate technology as per Objective 1.1c of the current plan, the
       District has convened a district-wide curriculum committee that is systematically
       reviewing all curriculum and planning guides (current and proposed) and targeting those
       identified as missing adequate technology resources for revision.

       In order to document the use of technology in the delivery of instruction and assessment,
       all administrators responsible for formative and summative evaluations of instruction
       have been trained on the identification and documentation of technology use during the
       observation / evaluation procedure. This is pursuant to Objective 2.2 in the District’s
       2004-2007 plan. A mechanism exists to provide similar training to all new administrators
       responsible for staff observation, evaluation, and development of professional
       improvement plans.

       Global needs are assessed in the spring of each academic year in preparation for the
       annual New Jersey Technology Survey. Results are used to identify target areas for
       universal training initiatives. Individual needs are assessed annually by the teacher in
       consultation with their department supervisor while developing the professional
       improvement plan. The areas identified are then targeted for individualized professional
       development opportunities within the District or through the use of New Jersey approved
       professional development providers as appropriate.

b. Provide a summary of teacher and library media personnel proficiency in the use of
technology within the district.

Perth Amboy Public Schools – District Technology Plan 2007 – 2010                       13
c.   Determine the current educational environment and barriers by describing how:

     i. staff are assured access to technology to facilitate technology integration,

     All district classrooms, offices, and preparation support rooms are equipped with
     multimedia capable workstations (as per New Jersey Department of Education definition)
     utilizing high-speed connections via LAN and WAN. Mobile wireless technology is
     available at all K through 12 locations. Remote access to district resources is available to
     all staff as is access to available district technology on “off-hours”.

     ii. often students have access to technology in their learning environment,

     Students are able to access technology as appropriate to support instruction 100% of the
     time within the learning environment. This is accomplished through the use of student
     workstations available in every classroom and support room. Additionally, to support
     technology access beyond the capabilities of the student workstations, wireless mobile
     carts are available for use in each K-12 location.

     Each school serviced by the LEA has maintained a student-computer ratio of <5:1 as per
     objective 4.1 of the existing plan. Additionally, all instructional and support rooms
     (media centers and computer labs) maintain access to technology for student use before,
     during and after school hours. Wireless technology supports student access and use of
     student laptop and PDA technology. All locations offer access to supervised technology
     use within and beyond the traditional school day.

     iii. the needs of staff are evaluated,

     The District employs a District-wide technology committee comprised of representatives
     from each school, discipline, and stakeholder group. The purpose of this committee is to
     identify areas of success and those in need of improvement in order to adequately prepare
     for future trends and initiatives. Each member of the committee serves as the liaison for
     their respective group. Subcommittees have been formed focusing on specialty areas
     such as: Technology Planning, Technology Assessment, Professional Development,
     Funding / Grants, and Infusion of Technology into Curriculum.

     Representatives meet with their respective constituency and report to the district
     committee as a whole on a monthly basis. Similarly, the subcommittees meet regularly
     and report back to the District Committee regarding their progress. The committee then
     makes suggestions based on the recommendations of these groups.

     iv. the needs of students are evaluated,

     School based Technology Committee members serve as the conduit linking student needs
     to the body capable of addressing those needs. District Curriculum Supervisors meet
     monthly (Department and Grade Level) and are represented on the District Technology
     Committee. Recommendations derived from those monthly meeting are provided to the
     committee as a whole and assigned to the appropriate sub-committee for further
     examination and recommendations.



Perth Amboy Public Schools – District Technology Plan 2007 – 2010                      14
     The District conducts an annual technology survey (site based) as per New Jersey State
     requirements. In preparation for this survey, the individual responsible for the
     completion of the survey maintains an open dialog with members of the respective school
     in order to assess the conditions particular to that site. The results of the annual survey
     coupled with the recommendations of the District Technology Committee are used to
     identify and address the needs of the student community.

     v. past professional development addressed the staff and students' needs for technology
     integration,

     Technology related Professional Development takes place via three general avenues:
     district provided (through LEA employed technology coordinators), in-house training by
     contracted professional development providers, and participation in workshops outside of
     the district. Each participant in in-district training is required to complete a Professional
     Development Evaluation form that critically examines the workshop for appropriateness
     of content, participant expectations, and overall quality of the experience. These
     assessments are reviewed by the person(s) responsible for providing the professional
     development opportunity and used to determine the direction of future experiences.

     Participants in workshops outside of the district are similarly responsible to complete a
     Professional Day Reporting form that assesses the qualities of the experience. In
     addition, material and knowledge acquired as a result of the experience are disseminated
     to others via department / grade level or team meetings. Results of these reporting
     measures are used in determining future participation with that provider.
     Agencies that the district contracts with annually are subject to an annual survey of
     participants in order to determine the future of subsequent contracts.

     vi. past professional development for all administrators was provided to further the
     effective use of technology in the classroom or library media center,

     Professional development for new administrators begins with a review of district policy
     and procedure as it relates to technology use and technology integration into instruction /
     assessment. Administrators are instructed in how to identify and document appropriate
     use of technology in the existing observation / evaluation procedure.

     All administrators are trained in the use of district technology resources (administrative
     and instructional). District initiatives that are technology rich include training for all
     stakeholders including district administrators.

     In addition to instruction on district administrative and instructional applications, the
     District has contracted with the Middlesex County Educational Technology Training
     Center (ETTC). This agency offers professional development opportunities that span the
     needs of the school community. Based on the individual administrator’s professional
     improvement plan and initiatives particular to the district, administrators are able to
     access training through this provider.

     Administrators who are responsible to implement and assess technology initiatives are
     provided specialized professional development in order to successfully accomplish this.



Perth Amboy Public Schools – District Technology Plan 2007 – 2010                       15
     For example, administrators have been provided professional development necessary to
     implement, manage, and assess applications such as Compass Learning benchmark
     assessment software and Study Island instructional applications.

     All professional development activities are logged and tracked using mylearningplan.com
     professional development software. District priorities are categorized in this application
     and all opportunities are disaggregated by category and examined to ensure adequate

     vii. ongoing, sustained professional development was provided in 2006-2007 for all staff
     to further the effective use of technology in the classroom or library media center,

     During AY2006-07 staff new to the district (veteran and novice) are provided a pre-
     service seminar prior to the start of the academic year. One component of this in-service
     is dedicated to an overview of instructional and administrative technology. Participants
     are introduced to the available technology, its uses, and available resources for training.

     The District also accommodates three formal staff development days per year. Topics
     presented include technology related to instruction and assessment. District initiatives
     such as content specific webquests and the use of available technology are provided to
     ensure proper, consistent, and efficient use of technology.

     In addition to in-district opportunities, district employees were able to access training
     with outside agencies. Eighty-six participants accessed training at the Middlesex County
     ETTC participating in over forty different topics. Topic categories included: production
     and assessment techniques / applications, adaptive technology, and Internet resources.

     To further support technology implementation, when purchasing an application or
     package sustained support and professional development is included in the contract.
     Pursuant to Title IID requirements, technology purchased through Federal funds includes
     a minimum of 25% reserve for professional development costs associated with that
     technology.

     All professional development activities are logged and tracked using mylearningplan.com
     professional development software. District priorities are categorized in this application
     and all opportunities are disaggregated by category and examined to ensure adequate
     progress in each.

     viii. ongoing, sustained professional development was provided in 2006-2007 for
     administrators to further support the effective use of technology in the classroom or
     library media center,

     During AY2006-07 district administrators new to the position were provided professional
     development experiences related to district administrative and instructional applications.
     This professional development is furthered to include ways to identify, assess, and
     document appropriate uses of technology in educational settings.
     Veteran administrators are included in planned professional development experiences to
     support district and state initiatives. Examples of this training include: the use of Clarity,

     ix. supports were provided for staff other than professional development,
     Positions are filled by fully certified and experienced teachers whose qualifications
     include a strong background in technology and the integration of technology into
     instruction.
     In addition to the use of technology coordinators for instructional support, the district
     computer center employs technicians and specialists whose primary function is to
     maintain the functionality of hardware and network connectivity. The district technology
     center maintains a telephone hotline manned by a qualified technician to provide remote
     support as needed.
     Media Specialists are housed at each location to provide support for the inclusion of
     educational media into instruction. Each media center is equipped to serve as a
     traditional academic library while providing the infrastructure to support contemporary
     electronic research and presentation. The media specialists are certified teachers whose
     qualifications include specialization in educational media and related services.
     x. professional development needs and barriers related to using educational technology
     as part of instruction have been identified
     The District conducts annual professional development surveys designed to both identify
     areas of need as well as to establish a framework for the District Professional
     Development Plan. Results of these surveys are scrutinized to determine what obstacles
     exist in the acquisition and delivery of sustained, high-quality professional development
     (in general). Specifically, technology related professional development needs and
     obstacles are assessed by the District Technology Committee.
     In addition to the regularly conducted professional development surveys, the district also
     uses results obtained from the Professional Development Reporting Forms to identify
     obstacles and areas of future need. The information acquired via these instruments is
     then reviewed by the Professional Development subcommittee and recommendations are
     offered to the District Technology Committee for action.

2. Based on the answers given above, indicate the needs of the district to improve
academic achievement for all students through the integration of technology.

The Perth Amboy Public Schools recognizes the need to increase the effective and efficient use
of technology in instructional settings. Our infrastructure and support services are sufficient to
provide all students with the tools and resources necessary to allow students to successfully
compete in both academic and vocational settings. Future professional development
opportunities must focus on using technology constructively across disciplines to ensure that
students learn technology skills while using those skills to increase their mastery of core content.

 A fundamental need beyond the use of technology in direct instruction is the use of technology
as a diagnostic planning tool by educators to track student performance and alter instruction to
address student needs empirically. Future efforts will focus on student data analysis applications
and the proper interpretation of results (quantitative and qualitative). The development of a
student data warehouse coupled with extensive staff training on the interpretation and use of
collected data will ultimately result in greater student motivation and performance.

3. Prioritize the identified needs

Priority I:
Continue to emphasize the infusion of technology into all curricular areas. Recognize
technology as a component of a complete education rather than an autonomous class.

Priority II:
Continue to provide professional development opportunities linking technology to
interdisciplinary studies. Technology will be used to connect content in core areas resulting in
continuity among disciplines.

Priority III:
Continue to develop the student data warehouse. Provide ongoing rigorous professional
development in the analysis and interpretation of data to effectively alter instruction. Data
driven decisions need to be made and delivered by professionals trained in the interpretation of
quantitative and qualitative information.

                           2360 - Use of Technology


The Board of Education recognizes that the use of technology in the educational
process is essential as part of the schooling experience. Technology is to be
viewed as a tool to enhance the learning process among other tools that are
required for teachers and students to fully explore the curriculum. In addition,
technology can be used to enhance the administration of the schools and the
district. In order to provide direction and meaning to the use of technology as an
instructional tool, the Board directs that the Superintendent and the teaching and
support staff use technology as a regular part of the learning process in every
area of the curricular area.

For purposes of this policy "technology" means the use of computers and
computer peripherals, communications networks, access to databases and
libraries of information and the integration of audio, video, multimedia devices
Interactive Television (ITV) and media for purposes of teaching and learning.

The Superintendent in consultation with the teaching and support staff shall
recommend to the Board the acquisition of appropriate technology to best
implement the curricular, instructional and administrative program of the school
district. The Superintendent shall prepare a technology plan for the school
district, which shall encompass the following:

Curricular Instructional and Administrative Need
The technology plan shall define the curricular, instructional and administrative
need for technological equipment and media for each area of instruction and
shall project the need to the extent possible for a five-year period.

In-Service Education
The Board shall provide opportunities to participate in in-service programs for
employees on all hardware or software programs to be used in the execution of
educational and administrative tasks. In-service programs may be provided on
or off site. The cost of tuition for in-service programs may be reimbursed by the
Board.

Standard, Codes and References
All technology installations shall conform to the following standards, codes and
references N.J.S.A. 18A, N.J.A.C. 5:23 and 6:22, BOCA National Building Code,
