            2009 – 2012 Long Range Technology Plan (Updated Oct. 2009)

                                          Executive Summary
Over the past several years, Castleberry Independent School District (CISD), one of the smallest geographic
districts in Texas, has worked in tandem with TEA and the Texas Legislature to achieve the vision of the
current Long Range Plan for Technology, 2006-2020. Community support of a bond issue in 1996 provided the
funding for beginning the process of removing asbestos, adding classrooms, renovating other classrooms, and
providing the hardware and wiring for the technology that was to come, thus laying the technological
infrastructure. The first district technology plan, developed in February 1997, emphasized providing equitable
access to technology by connecting each classroom, library, and computer lab to the Internet. The main thrust of
the plan was to equip the district with the technological infrastructure that would connect computers to the
district’s local area networks (LAN) and wide area network (WAN).

Along with the successful implementation of three Telecommunications Infrastructure Fund (TIF) grants, (PS-
09, PS-10, and PS-11), and annual E-rate discounts beginning in 2000, every classroom has been equipped with
at least one computer or laptop connected to the Internet through the district’s LAN network.

Ele mentary
In the initial year of the Reading First grant, all kindergarten through third grade classrooms were equipped with
three additional networked computers for student use. Cycle two of the Reading First grant supplied Palm Pilots
for each kindergarten through third grade teacher to use for Texas Primary Reading Inventory (TPRI) testing.
In addition, the Limited English Proficient Student Success Initiative (LEP SSI) grant provided the funding for
three additional networked computers in every fourth and fifth grade classroom. Campus general supply funds
and money from the 411 technology allotment were equally allocated to purchase projectors for all core
teachers. Elementary campuses continue to purchase several document cameras annually. Using Title funds, all
4th and 5th grade classrooms were equipped with a SMART interactive whiteboard in the summer of 2009. This
completed phase 1 of the whiteboard implementation plan. In phase 2, all second and third grade classrooms are
scheduled to be equipped with SMART Boards by the end of 2010. A mobile laptop cart of Acer Netbooks has
been purchased for each elementary campus using American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) funds.
Also, through the use of ARRA funds, in 2010 the installation of a secure wireless network will be completed
on each elementary campus to support the use of netbooks and other wireless technology.

Secondary
Irma Marsh Middle School received the School Improvement Resource Center (SIRC) grant which provided a
projector to each teacher in grades sixth through eighth. The grant also funded the purchase of twelve
Classroom Performance Systems, a device which assesses and provides immediate feedback while checking for
understanding. In the summer of 2008, replacement plan money was used to install a secure wireless network
targeting core instructional classrooms. Additional SIRC funds were used to equip every classroom with a
SMART Board in the summer of 2009. Several classrooms were also supplied with Airliner Slates and SMART
document cameras.

In April 2004, Castleberry High School was awarded the Texas Accelerated Science Achievement Program
Grant which provided 15 laptops stored in a wireless cart equipped with a projector, printer, and document
camera. After receiving the High School Allotment, Castleberry High School was able to purchase document
cameras along with projectors for Language Arts teachers; 8 Classroom Performance Systems (CPS) including
Exam View software with the Learning Series for TAKS practice and review; and 90 wireless laptops, stored in
                                                        8

3 carts, each equipped with a wireless network printer. To support the wireless features of the laptops,
replacement plan money was used to install a secure wireless network throughout the high school campus.

Allotment funds, received the second year, were used to purchase 60 wireless laptops stored in 2 laptop carts,
each equipped with a network printer. In 2006 through 2009, campus general supply funds and money from the
411 technology allotment were equally allocated to purchase projectors for all teachers. In addition, Bluetooth-
enabled Interwrite boards were purchased for math classes. Carl Perkins funds were used to purchase a laptop
cart and Interwrite boards for Career Technology Education (CTE) classes. In 2009, Carl Perkins funds have
been earmarked for the installation of SMART Boards in all CTE classes.

REACH High School also received High School Allotment money, and they were able to purchase 3 document
cameras, 3 projectors and 1 Classroom Performance System (CPS).

2001-2005 Technology Plan
The second district technology plan, the 2001-2005 Castleberry Technology Plan, was modeled after Dr. Larry
Anderson’s Guidebook for Developing an Effective Instructional Technology Plan. The emphasis of the 2001-
2005 Technology Plan was on how the technology would be utilized and how to provide suitable professional
development and state-recommended numbers of technological and instructional support. Therefore, it was
proposed to construct a new district technology training facility, so the district could provide local technology
support and technology training opportunities for all employees and eventually extend training to community
members. Staff development was aligned with the standards established by the School Board for Educator
Certification (SBEC) and the International Society for Technology Education (ISTE). The desired outcome was
for teachers and administrators to achieve the technology skills needed to perform with proficiency so that
technology would improve job efficiency and increase student performance on TEKS and TAKS objectives.
Currently, teachers are using classroom computers for taking attendance, posting grades, requesting substitute
teachers and time off, creating and updating teacher websites and online classrooms, accessing applications and
online programs relevant to their teaching, increasing interactive learning with students, and communicating
with parents. The district offers a varied approach to training staff by employing an elementary and a secondary
Instructional Technologist, who provide ―just- in-time‖ workshops, new teacher technology orientation sessions,
face-to-face or online Technology Proficiency Modules which are aligned with State Board of Educator
Certification standards.

With the implementation of the No Child Left Behind mandates (NCLB), the 2001-2005 Technology Plan
needed to be assessed and updated to reflect the NCLB requirements and new E-rate guidelines. In March of
2004, the CISD Technology Department evaluated and updated the second Technology Plan to align with No
Child Left Behind, E-rate, and the updated Texas Long Range Plan for Technology.

2005-2008 Technology Plan
Faced with funding limitations, the 2005-2008 plan focused on overcoming the difficulty that schools face with
maintaining the existing technologies, infrastructure, and support while striving for the goal of a one-to-one
student to computer ratio. To maintain current technology standards, the school board approved a plan and
allocated money which replaced computers annually based on a five year refresh plan. The Technology Plan
outlined how the district budgeted local funds for maintaining its existing condition, aligned objectives with all
new technology mandates, and provided strategies to achieve such goals.

             2009 – 2012 Long Range Technology Plan (Updated Oct. 2009)
2008-2011 Technology Plan
The 2008-2011 plan addresses the needs of beginning the implementation of a one-to-one student to computer
initiative. First, the updating of the existing network and infrastructure was approved by the school board in
March of 2008 in order to support the additional network usage that is to come as additional electronic devices
are added to the network. Fourteen physical servers were virtualized to 2 servers in order to utilize the district’s
technology investment to its greatest possible value by reducing overall server sprawl, easing management,
lowering warranty costs, and by reducing power requirements so that network resources are used most
efficiently. Implementing a new back-up and centralized storage system that allows recovery of electronic e-
mail and documents was completed in the spring of 2009 to meet storage and retention guidelines. In addition,
developing a plan for deployment of laptops/netbooks with filtered wireless internet access to students and
providing adequate technical and instructional support will be the primary goal of this plan.

Conclusion
The district’s vision encourages the shift from teacher-directed learning to student-centered learning
emphasizing students working collaboratively in communities of inquiry to propose, assess, a nd implement
solutions to real world problems. CISD commits to using technology to virtually bring the world to the student
by providing a depth and richness of instructional approaches to reach students of all learning modalities
anywhere and anytime. In addition, the CISD Technology Department is dedicated to working with its
surrounding community to nurture strategic partnerships through the Castleberry Technology Alliance and to
share its electronic resources with community members by providing community training opportunities.

Purpose
Castleberry ISD has prepared this three-year Technology Plan to articulate a common vision for technology in
the district. In addition, the plan will identify the strategies that will aid in using advanced techno logy to
improve the academic achievement, including technology literacy, for all students with rigorous curriculum
standards, the development of critical thinking skills that are essential for academic and workplace success, and
the capacity of all teachers to integrate technology effectively into curriculum and instruction.

Parameters
This Long-Range Technology Plan is driven by the state curriculum sta ndards and supports the educational
mission and instructional goals of Castleberry ISD and the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001. Specific attention
is given to addressing student standards for technology as defined by the Technology Applications Texas
Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS), required in the Texas Education Code, Section 28.002. The
Technology Applications TEKS, found in 19 TAC Chapter 126, detail what students should know and be able
to do using technology. As a part of the enrichment curriculum, these TEKS are to be used as guidelines for
providing instruction. The goal of the Technology Applications TEKS is for students to gain technology-based
knowledge and skills and to apply them to all curriculum areas in all grade levels.
The plan stresses the importance of ongoing and sustained staff development in the integration of technology
into the curriculum for teachers, principals, administrators, and school library media personnel to further the
effective use of technology in the classroom or library media center. It is consistent with the recommendations
for Local Education Agencies (LEAs) as defined by the Texas Long- Range Plan for Technology in the areas of
Teaching and Learning, Educator Preparation and Development, Administration and Support Services, and
Infrastructure for Technology, as well as the E-rate applications guidelines, and other state standards, such as
the adopted Technology Applications Standards for Beginning Teachers.

                                          General Introduction
Castleberry ISD is located five miles north and west of downtown Fort Worth, Texas. Castleberry ISD has
seven campuses: Castleberry Elementary PK-1 and 2-3, Joy James Elementary, A.V. Cato Elementary, Irma
Marsh Middle School, TRUCE Learning Center, REACH High School, and Castleberry High School. The
district serves 3,517 students living in River Oaks, Sansom Park, and Fort Worth. There are 465.9 staff
members, including 217.6 teachers, at the seven campuses. The district is 5.4 square miles in area, making it
one of the smallest geographical school district in Texas.
Castleberry ISD began in 1898 with a one-room frame building on the site where Castleberry Elementary
school now stands. In 1919, a red brick building was constructed and called Castleberry Common School
District, named after Zack and Fanny Castleberry because they furnished water from their well for school
purposes.
The communities of River Oaks, Sansom Park, and a small portion of northwest Fort Worth are ethnically and
socio-economically diverse. The communities are located next to the Fort Worth Naval Air Station and consist
primarily of inner city suburbs with very few industries. The tax base is predominately residential. Property
values in many parts of the school district are declining, providing little new sources of tax revenue for the
district.
From 1999 through 2008, the district’s percentage of Hispanic students has risen by approximately four percent
each year. In 2003, the student population changed from predominately white to majority Hispanic. The
district’s percentage of economically disadvantaged and ―at risk‖ students are also at their highest levels in nine
years.

Even with the decrease in economic development and changing demographics in the community, the district is
dedicated to sustaining and improving their technology program because CISD believes that our students,
teachers, and community deserve the same opportunity that larger and wealthier districts provide. Castleberry
ISD will continue to support the use of technology in achieving high standards of teaching and learning in all
classrooms for all students.

                              Technology Belief Statements
                       What needs to happen for the vision to become a reality?

                                          We believe that…

1. All staff should be empowered to reach their technological potential through an individualized
    professional development plan encompassed by appropriate training and technical support. Students will
    increasingly use technology effectively and productively when teachers themselves model its use.
2. All students should use technology as a tool to foster expanded thinking processes enabling them to
    solve ―real world‖ problems.
3. The technology scope and sequence should integrate the technology TEKS into the core curriculum,
    drive technology, and emphasize inquiry and project-based learning.
4. Technology presents new legal and ethical issues that should be addressed through instruction,
    organization, personal responsibility, and policy.
5. It is imperative to develop and nurture strategic partnerships with businesses, universities, and civic
    organizations to take advantage of shared resources.
6. Students, staff, parents, and the community should be supported in their quest for lifelong learning.
7. Student, staff, and administrative needs should drive all of our decisions concerning hardware and
    software acquisitions.
8. Our district should stay abreast of emerging technologies that support administrative and instructional
    objectives.
9. Technology, in every aspect of this education/business environment, should be inventoried,
    maintained, upgraded, integrated, and monitored so that every teacher and student has equitable
    access to technology in order to achieve instructional objectives established by the state and
    district.
10. Teachers should be provided with technical support that responds quickly to solve problems and
    prevents the breakdown of instruction and curriculum plans.

            2009 – 2012 Long Range Technology Plan (Updated Oct. 2009)

                            Imagine an education system where . . .
Students can expect higher performance and deeper engagement in academic, real world endeavors by
accessing digital tools and resources available twenty- four hours a day, seven days a week (24/7) appropriate to
individual strengths, needs, and learning styles. Students know they will be prepared to thrive in a global
workforce with changing economic implications.

Parents can expect not only to participate more directly in their children’s education but also to improve their
own knowledge as parents and citizens. Communications increase as parents have 24/7 access to learning
resources and student information such as achievement, attendance, and discipline.

Educators can expect to access and use student information on demand in order to individualize instruction.
The use of digital tools and resources and 24/7 professional development opportunities transform the educators’
role in the educational process. Increased communication will enhance collaboration between school, home,
and community.

Community and school board members can expect more effective and efficient use of fiscal resources and
human capital. Increased communication and participation in the educational decision- making process is
enhanced through the use of anytime, anywhere digital tools and resources.

A comprehensive needs assessment utilizing the Texas Campus and Teacher STaR Charts, technology ratios,
structure of the technology department personnel, network and infrastructure drawings, hardware/software
inventories, equipment standards, computer replacement plan, 5- year server replacement plan, and storage and
recovery abilities was conducted to analyze the current status of technology in the district and deter mine future
needs. Items analyzed included: infrastructure, server capacity and life span, hardware, software programs,
course offerings, student achievement, technology resources, staff development, and technical support.
Findings from this needs analysis are as follows:

                      A Tool for Planning and Assessing CISD Technology and Readiness

The Texas STaR Chart is designed to help districts determine their progress toward meeting the goals of the
Long Range Plan for Technology as well as meeting the goals of their district. The STaR Chart identifies the
following:
     Current educational technology profile
     Areas that CISD should focus on to improve its level of technology integration to ensure the best
       possible teaching and learning
     The District’s progress in meeting the goals of the Long Range Plan for Technology

                           Asset Replacement and Reallocation Plan
Factors affecting the retirement of technology assets include: the availability of funding; student instructional
needs; software demands and compatibilities; age of assets; upgrade ability; hardware warrantees; job duties;
and availability of technical support. The Castleberry ISD Replacement and Reallocation Plan is based on each
of these factors.

In general, Castleberry ISD anticipates an average of five years of use for most technological equipment before
retirement; therefore, replacement calculations are based on a five-year life span. This includes network
equipment, servers, workstations, and printers.

The following guidelines will be used during reallocation/retirement decision- making:

Annually, the Technology Department will meet as a group to:

   1. Estimate the cost of replacing 20% of the technology equipment. The Associate Director will submit
       this amount to the Superintendent in February of each school year to include in the budgeting process
       for the next school year.
   2. Identify instructional software that will be required to deliver the technology curriculum so that CISD is
       preparing students for real world technology applications.
   3. Identify administrative software necessary to perform daily job descriptions.
   4. Establish district software standards based on steps 2 and 3.
   5. Identify minimum hardware requirements for newly established software standards.
   6. Determine if the software requires the equipment be upgraded or replaced.
   7. Determine how many computers can be replaced with amount of funding approved in the budgeting
       process.
   8. Identify equipment needing to be retired to reduce maintenance costs or improve reliability.
   9. Make a computer purchase/deployment plan and timeline based on:
           a. Age of computers
           b. Job requirements/instructional needs
           c. Teacher computer replacement formula (Years of service and Tech Academy completion)
   10. Make a reallocation plan and timeline that includes the following parameter: Secondary teachers that
       have completed Tech Academy and have been with the district will have a choice between a laptop and
       a desktop. Elementary teachers that have completed Tech Academy and have been with the district will
       have the opportunity to receive a netbook in addition to a desktop and three N-Computing stations.
   11. Explore possibilities to deploy retired computers to the community.
   12. Estimate approximate equipment replacement for the next three years and apply for appropriate grants
       that can supplement the replacement budget.

                                  Software Installation Procedure
Purpose

The purpose of the software installation procedure is to address all issues relevant to software installation and
deployment on Castleberry ISD computer systems.

Authority

This procedure has full support from the Castleberry ISD Technology Department. The Associate Director of
Technology Services administers this procedure. This procedure is currently effective for all Castleberr y ISD
employees and computer systems.

Work in Progress

This guideline is a living document and may be modified at any time by the Superintendent and the Associate
Director of Technology Services.

Mission

Castleberry ISD’s Technology Software Objective is to enable the Technology Department to install and deploy
appropriate software that meets the needs of all students and employees.

Proble m

Historically, we have not had staff consistently follow procedures for how software is to be deployed to
Castleberry ISD’s computer systems. This lack of following standard procedure has adversely affected the
technology mission at times. This guideline will set protocol on how to distribute software, enabling the
Technology Department to achieve its objective of delivering stable, well-performing technological solutions.

Software Licensing

Many of the software titles and web applications on Castleberry ISD’s current software list are not freeware;
therefore, the cost and compatibility of software are considerations for most titles and their deployment.

It is the goal of the Technology Department to keep licensing accurate and up-to-date. To address this, the
Technology Department is responsible for purchasing software licenses for the following software categories:
      Desktop operating system software
      Productivity tools package
      Application software
      Internet software
      Accessories
      Technology Applications Software
      Virus protection
                                                        49

                   Castleberry Independent School District
            2009 – 2012 Long Range Technology Plan (Updated Oct. 2009)

The other software categories (workgroup-specific titles) are the purchasing responsibility of the workgroup in
which they serve. However, the application(s) are installed and supported by the Technology Department.
To control costs, licensing costs are a factor in the decision- making processes that go into client software
planning and request approval. All purchases of software must be pre-approved by the Technology Department
to ensure hardware and software compatibilities.

Software Requests

If a user requests currently approved software for their computer, the procedure is to fill out a technology work
request. If a user requests to purchase new software, the procedure is to fill out a software evaluation form and
submit it to the Associate Director of Technology Services for approval. After approval and upon the receipt of
purchased software, the purchaser must forward sealed software to the Technology Department. All software
and licensing including original CD’s are stored and maintained at the Technology Center.

Installation and Support of Castleberry ISD Software

The Castleberry ISD Technology Department is exclusively responsible for installing and supporting all
software on district computers. This responsibility set includes:

      Desktop computers
      Laptop/Netbook computers
      Computer lab desktop computers
      Wireless mobile computer labs

The Castleberry ISD Technology Department provides software and hardware installation for Castleberry ISD
students and employees. In order to offer the quality support, the Castleberry ISD Technology Department, in
coordination with all other departments, has decided upon the following software standards:

                   Data Storage, Back-up, Archiving, and Retrieval Plan
The purpose of establishing data storage, back- up, archiving, and retrieval guidelines for electronic data on the
Castleberry network is to establish the ability to store and retrieve critical data and ensure compliance with data
retention guidelines. To ensure the storage and safety of electronic data created by the district, the back-up
procedures are: All data, server settings, server system states, and Exchange e- mail are backed up every Friday
beginning at 6: 00 P.M. to the CommCell/Media Server Disk pool. Backing up to the disk pool will allow
concurrent streams decreasing the time needed for back-up. Data that has been backed up on the CommCell
will be copied to tape once the back-up jobs are completed. This will reduce the amount of traffic on the
network. Three copies of all data will be sent to tape: one copy for onsite recovery, one copy for offsite disaster
recovery (DR) storage, and one copy for historical storage. Full back-ups will be run every Friday and
incremental back-ups will be run each Wednesday thereafter. The last Friday of the month, the full back-up
will be archived as the monthly back-up. The monthly back- ups will be archived for one year. At the end of the
year, an annual back-up will be archived indefinitely. Additional mission critical data will be backed-up at least
once a day and stored offsite. Mission critical data will be stored each day for 30 days. At the end of 30 days, a
monthly back-up will be made and stored for 12 months. After 12 months, an end of year back-up will be made
and stored indefinitely. Mission critical data will be defined as all Financial and Student data. Mission critical
data will be stored offsite on the CISD_ARCHIVE server.

                            Sustainability and Supporting Resources

Castleberry ISD is committed to sustaining and improving technology to improve the instructional resources for
educators and increase the academic performance of all students.

The technology staff works to ensure that all technology equipment purchased is compatible, functions
efficiently, and is included in a long range replacement plan.

In addition to the state technology allotment, the district allocates local funds each year for replacement plans
and network enhancements.

The school district has built a robust network that is sustained by participating in the E-rate program and has
applied for and received approximately $717,418.90 in telecommunications discounts over a 9 year period.

Since 1999, the Technology Department has received approximately $1,995,461.90 in technology funding
through discounts and grants.

Additional support is provided by 18 technology alliance members who offer expert advice in their field and in
planning for new technologies.

In the future, Castleberry ISD will strive to increase the number of computer workstations for students until the
Texas Long Range Plan for Technology target ratio of 1:1 is met. The district will seek to purchase additional
workstations from a collaboration of district, campus, and department funds, grants, and business partnerships.


                                                 Legal Issues
The CISD staff adheres to the provision of the Children’s On- line Protection Privacy Act (COPPA), the Family
Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), the Children’s Internet Protection Act (CIPA), State Statues,
Education Code and Board Policies concerning the collection, storing, utilization, and distribution of student
information. The District will not share personally identifiable information of any student with any parties
unless parents/guardians of each student have given the required prior approval to release information. The
District website and all websites developed/maintained by any individual CISD staff member and/or
organization affiliated with CISD will provide the privacy policy statement.

                                                   Security
The purpose of establishing and maintaining good security of the Castleberry ISD network and computer
resources is to be responsible to our students, staff, parents, and community. Castleberry ISD ensures that all
users of technology resources are protected from persons outside and inside the District network who may wish
to modify files or gain unauthorized access to private information. Castleberry ISD works to protect the
accuracy and safety of required electronic student and staff records. Student Internet access and activities are
age appropriate and monitored. Censorship decisions about filtering online content are made by the Castleberry
ISD Technology Department and the subscription to Lightspeed filtering. Inappropriate use of the Castleberry
ISD network will be disciplined as outlined in the Student Code of Conduct, Board Policies and Procedures, and
the Responsible Use Agreement. Students, staff, parents, and community members who use the district network
must sign the Responsible Use Agreement every year at the beginning of the school year before gaining access
to the District network and Internet.

Sources of security measures include network security through the use of hardware and software to ensure that
only authorized users of the District network have access to electronic information. Annual training for
students, staff, and the community is conducted to keep users of District electronic equipment informed of
security and adherence to the Responsible Use Agreement and the Internet Safety Procedures. In addition, the
District has installed and uses a network firewall to block unauthorized access to District resources. If required,
the District can produce a log of all websites that each network user account has vis ited. As part of the
Microsoft School Agreement, the District receives automatic Windows and Office updates, and distributes them
to user workstations through the Active Directory service to maintain the highest level of operating system and
software security. In compliance with government mandates, the District uses an Internet filter to block user
access to inappropriate websites. Each network server is attached to an uninterruptible power supply, and files
on the network server are backed up according to the Back-up Plan. Antivirus software is installed on each
network server and workstation connected to the District network, and virus definition files are automatically
updated by the antivirus program.

Information technology offers both students and educators vast new resources for research, collaboration, peer
support, and exploration. Castleberry ISD encourages these pursuits while maintaining the highest levels of
security necessary to ensure safety for all stakeholders.

                                                Evaluation
The technology department/committee meets once a month to discuss ever- increasing technology needs and to
monitor the progress of meeting timeline deadlines as outlined in the 3 year District Technology Plan and the
District Strategic Plan. Both planning documents have been approved by the school board. In the Technology
Plan, a comprehensive technology equipment replacement plan is included for technology infrastructure,
computer labs, and desktop computers to guarantee technology sustainability in the district. Also, a framework
for staff development and administrative use of the equipment is included. In October and March of each year,
the 3 year Technology Plan will be updated to reflect the new goals, objectives, and timelines established by the
Technology Department with input from the Technology Alliance members. The Technology
Department/Technology Alliance members will be responsible for the ongoing monitoring/evaluation of this
plan while focusing on the main purpose of this plan, which is to make decisions on the impact that technology
has on the learning process of all students. In addition, a technology evaluation will be reported to the school
board each year in which the success/progress of the overall technology program is determined using the
following tools:

Dear Parents/Guardians and Students:

Your child has an opportunity to be given access to the District’s electronic communicat ions system and needs
your permission to do so. Your child will be able to communicate with other schools, colleges, organizations,
and individuals around the world through the Internet, video conferencing, and other electronic information
systems/networks.

The Internet is a network of networks. Through the District’s electronic communications system, your child will
have access to hundreds of databases, libraries, and computer services all over the world.

With this educational opportunity also comes responsibility. It is important that you and your child read the
enclosed agreement for responsible use of the electronic communications system, the rules for appropriate use
and inappropriate use, and the consequences for inappropriate use. Inappropriate system use will result in the
loss of the privilege, or suspension to use this educational tool.

While the District is required by federal law to use technology protection measures to limit access to material
considered harmful or inappropriate to students, it may not be possible for us to absolutely prevent such access.
The district is in compliance with the Child Internet Protection Act (CIPA) and is taking reasonable steps to
prevent access to such material.

Please return the agreement form, found in the front of the Student Handbook and Code of Conduct, indicating
your permission or denial of permission for your child to have access to the District’s electronic
communications system.

Sincerely,



Renee Smith-Faulkner
Associate Director of Technology

                                   Employee E-mail P rocedures
General Guidelines

      When sending important information, do not assume your recipient will read it imme diately. E-
       mail is best used for sending information that can be digested by readers at their convenience, and
       should not be used for same-day meeting notices and other urgent business. The telephone is the
       preferred communication mechanism for urgent information.

      Use “read” or “return” receipts sparingly. Receipts have their place and can be useful, but the prolific
       use of receipts can tax the company e-mail system. Receipts may also annoy or insult the reader. Use
       receipts only when there is a real need.

      Use judgment in distributing large enclosures. Huge documents tax the system and can disrupt the
       operation of the recipients’ accounts. Sometimes a paper copy still makes more sense, even if it requires
       more effort to distribute.

      For a large enclosure, there may be a better electronic distribution method. A ―pull‖ system is one
       in which the e- mail message references the document and identifies how it can be retrieved from a
       folder or website, if the reader wishes to do so. Reference documents in the public folders or workspace
       in Sharpschool instead of attaching large enclosures.

      Do not use enclosed documents for very-short messages. Document enclosures take time to open and
       read, and they occupy space on the system or the recipients’ hard drive – so they should be sent
       sparingly.

      Do not share confidential information in an e-mail that is sent to a distribution list. Think of using
       a distribution list in the same way you would use verbal forms of communication. If you would not
       announce the information to a crowd of people, then do not send it to a crowd via e-mail. Student
       information regarding grades, discipline, and attendance is to be kept private. Be aware that COPPA
       laws and standards may be violated each time personal information is shared via e- mail. An open
       records request for these e- mails could require the district to make them available to the public.

Sending Messages

      Don’t copy your administrator or other staff on unnecessary messages. Most administrators receive
       a tremendous amount of e- mail and can’t possibly read, much less respond to, each message they
       receive. Unless your administrator has requested it, don’t copy them for ―FYI‖ purposes or just to show
       that you are busy. Your messages may actually be having the opposite effect. Also observe the proper
       ―chain of command‖ when addressing messages. Send information only to people who really need it.




                                                      124

            2009 – 2012 Long Range Technology Plan (Updated Oct. 2009)

      When replying, leave only the important parts of the original message(s). People need to know what
       you’re replying to, but they don’t always need to see the entire message string. Long message strings
       consume a lot of space on our system, which translates directly into cost and waste. People will
       appreciate it if you delete unnecessary material

      Don’t use the REPLY ALL function unless every person on the original list really needs to see
       your response. A response to the sender is often sufficient.

      Avoid long distribution lists. Instead, focus on individuals who actually need and will utilize the data
       you are sending.

      Don’t send messages just to say “thanks,” “o.k.” and things of that nature. It takes less time and
       effort and is more people- friendly to say these things in person, when you see the person.

      Be judicious in the use of “high importance” flags on outgoing message. If all your messages are
       sent with ―high importance‖, your audience will eventually ignore that flag. Only the messages that are
       of real importance should use the ―high importance‖ flag.

      Think about what you’re doing whe n you communicate with other e mployees by e -mail. If the
       recipient is only two rooms away, it is unproductive to ―discuss‖ an issue via a chain of e- mail. Practice
       ―open communication‖ and try talking to each other!

The Subject

      Use a descriptive subject title with each message. The subject should summarize the point of the
       message. This will also assist your reader in locating your message q uickly in his or her inbox. Blank
       subject lines can cause your message to be deleted by spam or virus filters.

      Don’t make the title too long. Long titles are not fully visible when mail is delivered and may cause
       confusion. On the other hand, mail sent with no title may be treated as junk mail.

      It is an excellent practice to label your message’s title with one of the following categories: “For
       Action,” “Response to Action” or “Information Only.” This will allow recipients to scan their
       messages and rapidly determine if you are seeking guidance and/or timely action, as opposed to
       communication for informational purposes. The CC address is informational by definition.

The Body of the Message

      Be direct, and get right to the point. Many people receive dozens of e- mail messages daily and will be
       grateful if you say what you need to say with few words. An e- mail message should look more like a
       telegram than a doctoral dissertation.

      Choose your words carefully. E- mail has a tendency to be misunderstood more than other written
       forms of communication. Your sarcasm, humor or seriousness may be misinterpreted in the flatness of
       the e-mail message. If you want to convey emotion or strong convictions, it is probably better to say it in
       person or use the telephone. In general, observe good ―e-mail etiquette.‖ For example, MESSAGES
       WRITTEN IN ALL CAPS ARE OFTEN CONSIDERED RUDE by the reader.

      Use new paragraphs to show a change of direction in thought. Don’t use on long paragraph. It makes
       the message hard to read and it’s tough for the reader to find the key points inside a huge mountain of
       text.

      Separate paragraphs with a blank line. This makes the whole message easier to read.

      Watch that punctuation!!!! That sixth or seventh extra exclamation point or question mark at the end
       of your sentence won’t add any more emphasis and may clutter up your message.

      Don’t get too “creative” with text or graphics. Script and other ―fancy‖ typestyles are hard on the eye
       when viewed on a computer screen. In particular, don’t add bitmap ―. BMP‖ or ―. TIF‖ signatures to
       your messages – they are unnecessary and can burden the capacity of the system and/or people’s
       accounts.

      Never put anything in an e-mail message that you wouldn’t put in a me mo. Inappropriate remarks,
       district gossip, and other unsavory or controversial subjects that end up in e- mail can hurt both the
       district and employees. E- mail can be forwarded and can travel anywhere inside or outside the district. It
       is backed up and can be restored either inside or outside the district, even after being deleted. E- mail
       becomes a written record that can be used in a court of law. Be professional and careful in what you say
       to and about others.

      Check your message before sending. Always check your spelling and grammar. Our Outlook e- mail
       system provides a spell checker. You can make a poor impression very quickly by sending out a note
       with bad grammar and/or misspelled words.

      Take a breather before you reply to an e-mail that elevated your blood pressure. Otherwise you
       may regret your response later. Discretion is often the better part of valor.

Additional E-mail Information

      The district e-mail network is provided for school use. It is inappropriate and against district
       policy to use the system to send jokes, information pertaining to non-school related activities,
       chain letters, and political opinions, etc. Use of the system for jokes or inter-office banter may seem
       like a small matter, but the net loss in productivity can be high when repeated or multiplied across the
       district. Remember, there is an electronic record of everything you create on e-mail, whether you delete
       it or not.
      Always delete unknown e-mail attachme nts before opening the m. They can contain destructive
       viruses.

            2009 – 2012 Long Range Technology Plan (Updated Oct. 2009)

      Don’t forget to delete unneeded messages and othe rwise “clean” your account periodically. It will
       improve the functionality of your account, especially if people have sent you presentations and or other
       large document packages.

      Request for broadcast “all users” message should be made to the appropriate administrator. Send
       your request to your administrator if you would like to request an all–users message. The Technology
       Department limits the number of these messages and may suggest your announcement appear on the
       school website or in an electronic newsletter instead.

      Use the e-mail file manage ment options to help sort incoming mail. You can probably improve your
       handling of received messages by learning to use the available ―inbox assistant‖ options and
       customizing your inbox.

      Be aware that e-mail accounts aren’t “free.” The number of e- mail accounts at Castleberry continues
       to increase, even though staffing hasn’t increased. Each account costs the district because the district
       must supply virus protection software, application software, computers, and personnel to set up
       passwords and maintain the account. Employees should have a valid need before being assigned an
       account; if the need is only for occasional training or similar use, a shared account may be an option.

      The district provides a web mail portal. Therefore, the district does not provide access to outside e-
       mail accounts such as AOL, Yahoo, or Hot Mail.

Note: Additions to the e- mail procedures may occur to align with ever changing technological advances.

                        Student E-Mail Procedures/Safety Tips
                           Student E-Mail Responsible Use
1. Students will use SharpSchool as their school e- mail provider. SharpSchool allows website
    administrators to regulate access, intercept inappropriate e- mail, monitor individual student e-mail
    accounts, and determine user privileges.
2. If a teacher intercepts inappropriate e-mail, the SharpSchool administrators will terminate the student’s
    e-mail account, and the teacher may mark a zero for all assignments which require e- mail use.
3. Students may not access any other existing or home e-mail accounts from school.
4. Keep e-mail passwords private. Do not give an e-mail password out to a friend.
5. Online services will never ask for passwords, so neither should anyone else.
6. If a student shares his/her password with another person, he/she is still responsible for what happens
    with his/her personal account.
7. Not everyone is as nice as they may sound online. Never make plans to meet an online "friend" in
    person.
8. If someone online asks for a password or to meet in person, notify your teacher immediately, so he/she
    can document the incident.
9. Never give out personal information like name, address, or phone number.
10. Remember that nothing a person writes on the Web is completely private (including e- mail), so do not
    say anything inappropriate or unkind in e- mail.
11. Always delete unknown e-mail attachments. They can contain destructive viruses.
12. Using bad or obscene language violates responsible use.
13. Refrain from writing in capital letters because readers might perceive it as "SHOUTING."
14. Keep messages short and to the point.
15. Always include a brief subject in the subject line.
16. Do not "flame" (say something malicious) in an e- mail.
17. Using e- mail to threaten, intimidate, embarrass, or with intent to harm another is a class ―C‖
    misdemeanor. (HB 2003)
18. Do not post or attach hotlinks or pictures that are inappropriate.
19. Do not send "spam." Spamming is sending the electronic equivalent to junk mail. (advertisements, jokes,
    chain letters, or things that are of no real value to the individual)
20. Follow the Responsible Use Policy.

                             Castleberry Internet Safety P rocedures
It shall be the policy of Castleberry ISD to institute an Internet Safety Procedure. This procedure affects the use
of technologies in place at Castleberry ISD. This procedure will be presented to all students and staff and posted
on our website. A public forum concerning the Internet Safety Procedure will be held to inform parents and
concerned community members. This procedure will accomplish the following tasks:

      Block or filter access to visually obscene material from the Internet, or other sources
      Block or filter access to child pornography from the Internet or other sources
      Block or filter access to material and resources harmful to minors
      Prohibit the use of technology for illegal, immoral, or unethical reasons
      Comply with all state, federal, local and district guidelines regarding the use of technology

Access by minors and staff to inappropriate matter using the Inte rnet or other technologies
No student or staff member shall access inappropriate material via the Internet while using school resources
and/or equipment. This includes, but is not limited to, pornographic sites, child pornography, visual depictions
of pornographic acts, racist sites, illegal activities, and any other site that is unlawful, immoral, or unethical.
This procedure includes all technology resources such as computers, phones, handheld devices, VCRs, TVs or
any digital media.

Access to chat rooms, instant messaging, forums, “blogging” sites, and Usenet groups
No student will participate in any chat room, instant messaging, podcasting, forum, ―blogging‖ site or listserve
group without the prior approval of the teacher and administration, and then only to accomplish a recognized
educational objective. Students and staff will not use phones or other communication technologies to call 900 or
other numbers that are pornographic or unethical in nature.

Carrying out "hacking" or other unlawful/unethical activities
No student or staff member will engage in computer sabotage, hacking, or the generation of computer viruses,
worms, or Trojan horses. This includes the release of software known to be harmful to other computer systems.
No student or staff member shall use Castleberry ISD technology resources in an attempt to defraud or extort
others.

E-mail use
No student or staff member shall use e- mail to send or receive pornographic/obscene material. No student or
staff member shall engage in intimidation, spamming, racism, inappropriate language, or any other
unlawful/unethical activity using e- mail. Third party e- mail accounts, such as "Hotmail", will not be used by
students at Castleberry ISD; instead, SharpSchool will be used to provide each student a monitored e-mail
account.

Disclosure of pe rsonal information
No student shall disclose personal information about themselves or others over the Internet or through the use of
a fax, telephone, or e- mail account. No staff member shall disclose personal information about a student or
others over the Internet or through e- mail. This includes medical, academic, or personnel data, unless required
by law or the appropriate party signs a written release.

             2009 – 2012 Long Range Technology Plan (Updated Oct. 2009)

                                    Specific Protection Measures
Filtering software
Filtering software will be used to block and filter access to the Internet. Castleberry uses Lightspeed filtering
software to block access to pornographic and obscene sites. This feature is in place and active at all times
Internet access is available. All computers connected to the Internet will be required to access it through the
filter in place at the District. New sites will be added and blocked as needed. It is the responsibility of the
Network and Infrastructure Director to carry this task out as soon as he receives written notification of new
sites.

Use of a Sonic Wall
If a site is found to be objectionable and not blocked by the Lightspeed filtering software, the school will use
the Sonic Wall as a secondary firewall to block access to that site.

Logging of Internet use
Inappropriate use of the Internet can be recorded in a log file in Lightspeed. Any person wishing to use the
Internet must logon using a valid username and password. Internet access will be denied if a valid username and
password is not supplied. The technology staff will periodically check the log for unauthorized site access by
students or staff.

Responsible Use Policy
Annually, all students and staff will sign and date a responsible use agreement before being allowed to use the
Internet and e- mail system. This agreement will list various activities prohibited in the use of technology and
explain some possible consequences of misuse. There will be a training sessio n in which students will go over
the contract and be made aware of the consequences of violating the agreement. Teachers will also be trained
during new teacher orientation.

E-mail protection
The use of e-mail by students and staff will be primarily used for educational purposes. The staff and student e-
mail systems are filtered prior to delivery to individual accounts.

Training sessions
Castleberry will hold at least two responsible use training sessions per year. A student session will occur at the
beginning of the year and attendance will be mandatory. After the training session, students will receive access
to the network. In addition, each required computer class will include curriculum units on Internet ethics and
use. New staff will also participate in training which includes guidelines and policies, and strategies to use in
the classroom to promote technology and Internet ethics and use for students.

                     Castleberry ISD Web Page Publication Guidelines
           Procedures for Creating and Placing Web Pages Using SharpSchool
The District's Web site provides information to the world about school curriculum, instruction, school-
authorized activities, and other general information relating to our schools’ and our District's mission. Internet
access privileges for the creation of Web pages are provided to the Campus, Department, and Teacher
Pagemasters, and the District’s Webmaster Team. The District’s Webmaster Team is made up of Instructional
Technologists, Technology Secretary, and Associate Director of Technology Services.

Content Standards

The District’s Webmaster Team is responsible for campus Pagemasters and Web page approval. Campus
principals may recommend staff members as Pagemasters, who prepare Web pages for publication for specific
student or teacher groups, curriculum resources, school organizations, campus newsletters, calendars, etc.
Pagemasters must attend webmastering training, which includes sessions on district webmastering software
applications, District Web Page Responsible Use Policies, and procedures for publishing. Pagemasters will
publish their page in SharpSchool after ensuring that the content meets district Web page guidelines.

Each campus will use the approved district template. Pagemasters will adhere to the technical standards as
stipulated in this document.

Subject Matter

All subject matter on Web pages should relate to curriculum, instruction, school-authorized activities, general
information that is appropriate and of interest to others, or it should relate to the school district, or the schools
within the district. Therefore, neither staff nor students may publish personal home pages as part of the district
Web site, or home pages for other individuals or organizations not directly affiliated with the district. Staff or
student work may be published only as it relates to a class project, course, or other school-related activity. All
campuses are required to include the following information on their site: campus address, bell schedule,
dismissal times, staff listings (limited to name, conference times, and phone extension), attendance, school
supplies, registration information, contact information, and campus calendar. This information must be
updated on a regular basis.

Quality

All Web page work must be proofed for spelling and grammatical errors prior to publication. Documents may
not contain objectionable material or point (link) directly to objectionable material. Objectionable material is
defined as material that does not meet the standards for instructional resources specified in district policies.
Regarding the question of quality or propriety of Web page material, appearance, or content, the judgment of
the District Webmaster Team will prevail.

The District Webmaster Team will review the website regularly to ensure accuracy and t imeliness of
information listed.

            2009 – 2012 Long Range Technology Plan (Updated Oct. 2009)
Ownership and Retention

All Web pages of the District are property of the school district. Student work included on pages will be deleted
when a student graduates or moves.

Copyright

Whenever a student or staff member wishes to "re-publish" someone’s writing or graphics on a Castleberry ISD
Web site, explicit permission must be obtained from the owner of copyright or evidence must be provided that
the materials are "in the public domain."

Every Web page containing such items must provide full credit to the source, indicate that permission was
granted and include a notice clarifying that all rights are still reserved by the copyright owner.

The documentation granting permission should be printed out and presented along with any Web pages being
submitted for publication to the Webmaster team, Pagemaster, or teacher.

Student Safeguards

To ensure the safety of our students, the following guidelines have been set for publishing student information
on the web:

      Web page documents or pictures may include only the first name and the initial of the last name of a
       student.
      Documents may not include a student's phone number, address, names of other family members, or
       names of friends.
      Published e- mail addresses are restricted to staff members or a general group which reports under a
       supervising teacher.
      Student pictures (video or still) can be published by a teacher unless parents have objected to such
       publication through the Castleberry ISD Parent/Student Acknowledgment Form outlined in the Student
       Handbook and Code of Conduct, which is updated and signed each year by the student and parent. If a
       student is clearly identifiable on the home page of any campus or teacher Web page, the Pagemaster
       must also obtain additional written permission (Release Form for the Display of Personal Information)
       from a student's parent before allowing a photograph of a student to be posted on the home page. Such
       permission forms must be sent to a Webmaster team member prior to publication. Large group pict ures
       such as band, football, classes, etc. can be published without the Release Form of the Display of
       Personal Information if the parents have not objected to such publication through the Castleberry ISD
       Parent/Student Acknowledgment Form.
      Web page documents may not include any information which indicates the physical location of a student
       at a given time, other than attendance at a particular school, or participation in activities.

            2009 – 2012 Long Range Technology Plan (Updated Oct. 2009)
Technical Standards

Each Web page added to the District Web Site(s) must contain certain elements which will provide general
consistency for District Web Pages.

      Suggestion for revision: All pagemasters are expected to go to Advanced>Page Properties to check the
       date that the page was last modified to keep the Web page current.
      Dark blue, black and gray are the designated font colors used for homepages and sub-pages which are
       managed from the homepage.
      Formatting the font to a selection from the format menu will maintain the appropriate font style when
       the page is published.
      Maroon shading with white font are the designated colors used for the header of a table.
      Additional consistency standards will be developed by the District as the need arises.
      Pagemasters are given permission to publish updates to their page(s) as needed. However, if guidelines
       outlined in this document are not followed, an approval process will be put in place
      Users will not be allowed to add clipart on the campus or teacher homepage or sub-pages which are
       managed from that homepage. (Page Properties>Manage S ub-pages…)
      The Pagemaster will proof and test the page(s) for accuracy of links, and check for compliance with
       standards outlined in this policy prior to publishing.
      Web pages may not contain links to other Web pages not yet completed. If a webpage is ―under
       construction,‖ it should be hidden or archived until it is ready for publishing. (Page Properties>Manage
       Sub-pages…)
      All Web pages must be given names which clearly identify them. The names of all documents shall
       coincide with current District naming practices and structures. Do not include spaces in the names of
       documents or files. An underscore can take the place of a space if desired.
      Teacher Web pages may contain educational forums, blogs, or chats that the teacher creates in
       SharpSchool. The teacher will monitor all activity in accordance with the teacher and student
       Responsible Use Policies. Entries must be related to the instructional curriculum. Permissions must be
       set so that only designated students can respond, comment, or participate.
      Web page links may not include entities whose primary purpose is commercial or biased political
       advertising.
      Final decisions regarding Web pages for editing content or organization will rest with the district’s
       Webmaster Team.
      Changes to the template style sheet will only be made by the district’s Webmaster team.

            2009 – 2012 Long Range Technology Plan (Updated Oct. 2009)
Photograph Guidelines

      The message you want to send in your photos will exemplify district excellence in academics, adherence
       to the district’s mission, and ethnic diversity.
      As much as possible, photographs should show active interaction between subjects, and should not be
       posed.
      All photos will display adherence to the Student Code of Conduct and the Teacher Handbook.
      One or two photos may be included on the homepage. Photos of current events on the main subweb
       pages will be displayed for a maximum of four weeks.
      A Photo Gallery page is included in the teacher webpage template. Pagemasters will organize each
       collection of appropriate photos within an album. Albums can stay active throughout the school year. At
       the beginning of each year, the albums from the previous year will be removed.

Due to the rapid change in technology, some of the technical standards outlined in this guideline may require
change throughout the year. Such changes will be made by the Webmaster team.

I have read and understand the guidelines for creating a web page to be published on the CISD web site. I agree
to stay within these guidelines and understand that my rights as a Page Master will be relinquished if I do not
follow the guidelines.

Sample voice message in case of emergency evacuation:

       You have reached the voice mail for <Location Name>. We have evacuated the building, and all
       students are being safely transported to <location of emergency evacuation>.

       Students will only be released to persons listed on the emergency contact form. Please be prepared to
       have each emergency contact provide a driver’s license or other photo identification when they pick up
       your student. Also be prepared for a delay in checkout as we confirm the release of each individual
       student.

       Students will be kept in a safe location until they are picked up by the appropriate emergency contact.

(* Identify where to pick up the students, when to pick up the students, who may pick up the students, and how
to pick up students—bring photo i.d.)

                             Technology Alliance Invitation Letter

Dear ____________:

Castleberry Independent School District, located north and west of downtown Fort Worth, is pleased to
announce the formation of the Castleberry Technology Alliance. The Technology Alliance is a partnership of
business and community members as well as individuals who are interested in promoting the use of technology
in education for students, staff, parents, and members of the community.

This venture brings together the resources of people, equipment, software, and finances to increase the use and
understanding of technology. We are looking to promote strategic partnerships with se veral members so that
use of technology can be advanced for educational purposes.

Partnership means equal status. We plan to share our knowledge and resources with our partners. Those
resources may include volunteer help as a consultant or trainer, donations of equipment or software,
opportunities for student internships in work settings, use of equipment/facilities for training during non-work
hours. Castleberry ISD has an experienced staff of people who are capable of sharing their knowledge with
children and adult students.

Since 1997, Castleberry ISD has invested hundreds of thousands of dollars in computer equipment, software,
and networking that can be used to further education of children and adults. We invite you to participate as a
partner with us to increase our use of technology for lifelong learners.


Since rely,
