         8) Goal 4, Strategy 1 - maintain three-year computer replacement schedule.
         9) Goal 4 Strategy 2 – maintain and upgrade network and Internet and
              classroom operations.
         10) Goal 4, Strategy 3 – increase the availability of technology tools for
              teachers and students for instruction, independent study, and research
              meeting the needs identified by teachers, librarians and students when asked
              about obstacles to using technology.
   c. A strategy to improve education or library services
       After discussions with librarians across the county, the addition of a computer
         each year for the next two years in each library in the county will greatly
         improve access to services for students. In addition, a decision to allow access
         to card catalogs across the network will give student access to library
         information in each classroom. These action steps are located in Goal 4,
         Strategy 3.
   d. Steps to increase accessibility
       Lowering the computer to student ratio in each classroom and maintaining
         computer labs will increase accessibility. Better training for teachers will affect
         student learning. These action steps are located in Goal 1, Strategy 1; Goal 2,
         Strategies 2 and 3.
       Recent EdTech awards and other grants will be used to address accessibility
         first in Target Schools. Those schools are Martin Primary, Martin Elementary,
         and Greenfield Elementary. Funds will be used to lower computer to student
         ratios and provide teacher training on better utilizing technology in the
         classroom.

2. Telecommunications assessment
       Assessment was accomplished by discussion with librarians, students,
         technology staff and staff at Education Networks of America. The addition of
         computers in the libraries and additional T1 lines will increase the usage and
         effectiveness of library services. Formal assessment will be accomplished
         during the 2004-2005 School Year.

3. Promotion of curricula and teaching strategies that integrate technology
       The plan encourages the use of technology through proven software programs
          already in use in most schools in Weakley County Schools and through pilot
          programs several other schools. EdTech grants at Martin Primary School and
          Martin Elementary schools are providing experimental programs to determine
          best practices to model in future years.
   a. Is based on a review of relevant research
       Accelerated Reader is in use in all schools in the district. One school is piloting
          Accelerated Math and two schools are testing Fast Forward. Follow the Leader
          programs at five schools and training in proven technology integration
          techniques complete the research based programs in use.
       As other research becomes known through websites, teacher referral, and best
          practices highlighted at conferences like the Tennessee Educational Technology
          Conference and the National Educational Computer Conference, teachers will
          be asked to share with their colleagues at workshops. Technology will be
          explored as an avenue of support for this new research.
   b. Is aligned to Tennessee Instructional Technology Standards
       The above programs are aligned to the Tennessee Instructional Technology
          Standards.
   c. Will lead to improvements in student academic achievement
       All programs have proven track records improving student academic
          achievement and will be monitored for effect on student scores during the
          2004-2005 School Year.
   d. Includes a timeline for this integration
       The process for integration began several years ago with workshops on “One
          Computer Classroom”. They have continued for the last three years with
          productivity tools workshops. Last year, Weakley County Schools held a
          system-wide workshop on specific tools to be used with technology in the
          classroom. The program was aligned with the Tennessee Technology
          Instructional Standards and based in the state’s curricula for students. The new
          timeline is listed in the Action Steps for Goals 1 and 3.

4. Professional Development
       The Technology Plan includes sustained, ongoing professional development for
          educators. The training will include instructional tools and
          administrative/productivity tools. Assessments will be performed annually
          using the Tennessee STaR Chart to ensure that professional staff members
          continue to improve technology skills. A variety of resources will be utilized
          including regular in-service, special education in-service and voluntary
          workshops. Funding sources will include EdTech Grants (at two schools), Title
          II, Part D funds (consistent with the expenditure plan and goals of that
          program), and local funds. All of the strategies in Goal 3 are directed toward
          the professional development of our staff in Weakley County Schools.

         often include the principal of the school.
       Additional expenditures for technology in the schools are made each year by
         the building principal from school funds, the Supervisor of Special Education
         from Special Education funds, the Director of Vocational Education from
         Vocational Education funds, and the Supervisor of Adult Education from Adult
         Education funds. Local organizations like the Rotary Club and the Pilot Club
         donate funds to the local building principal for technology expenditures. All
         expenditures are coordinated through the Technology Coordinator in an attempt
         to increase student learning and facilitate the daily integration of technology
         into the curriculum of the school.
   c. Supporting resources
       Sufficient licenses have been purchased from local funds for Microsoft Office
         to allow all personnel to have the same programs on all computers. Office
         supplies are budgeted from local funds based on student enrollment and include
         paper and printer ink. Maintenance technicians are in each school each week.
         During the first semester, technicians visit schools more than once each week to
         address problems associated with technology.

6. Evaluation and Accountability
   a. Monitoring progress
       Each action step has an evaluation component. The technology coordinator and
         supervisory staff will meet no less than quarterly to determine progress and
         make any corrections that opportunity presents.
   b. Evaluate effectiveness
       TCAP and Gateway scores are monitored annually to determine progress
         toward the goals of the Weakley County Schools.

7. Parental Involvement
       Several parents serve on each school’s advisory committee and on the Title
         advisory committee. Their counsel has been utilized in developing this plan
         and will continue to be sought as the plan moves forward. Specific details for
         parental involvement can be found in Goal 2 Strategy 2 and Goal 3 Strategy 3.
