                                                  Executive Summary
In light of the new Long-Range Plan for Technology, 2006-2020 which directly supports the Mission of Texas Public Education by ensuring an engaging, relevant,
and future-focused system of education for young Texas learners preparing each student for success and productivity as a lifetime learner, a world-class
communicator, a competitive and creative knowledge worker, and an engaged and contributing member of the emerging global digital society.

The traditional model of schooling, with the teacher choosing what is to be learned and then serving as the source of knowledge and with the student acting as the
receiver of that knowledge, is not adequate for 21st Century, world-class education. This is especially true in light of Thomas L. Friedman's book,The World Is Flat.
Roles of teacher and learner must change and with this "flattening" of the globe it requires us to run faster in order to stay in place. In the Digital Age the sheer
volume of information means that our students must become active participants in the learning process.

The focus of La Pryor ISD is to prepare our students to be productive members of society and to be successful in life as is stated in the new LRTP. As one of The
Standard-Bearer Network of Schools we share the belief that the focus of any school reform effort must be on continuous improvement of the design of work
provided to students. The Standard-Bearer framework provides a means to unify on-going initiatives and to bring coherence to district efforts-where the core
business is providing students content-rich, engaging work every day.

The Schlechty Center for Leadership in School Reform is an organization that provides high-quality and responsive support to those who are leading school reform
efforts across the nation. The Center’s staff primarily works with public school leaders to transform schools from organizations that produce compliance and
attendance to organizations that nurture attention and commitment at all levels in the system.

In the high-tech climate we live in today, preparing our students to utilize technological resources is a major factor in their future success. With that in mind, we
have worked hard to focus our efforts with respect to technology in the schools by developing classrooms with out walls and teachers that meet the rigorous
content standards outlined in the State Board for Education Certification standards for what all teachers should know and be able to do using technology. The
purpose La Pryor ISD educational community, as it pertains to technology, is to develop a climate that seeks out the rewards and benefits that technology can
offer. La Pryor High School has initiated a 1 to 1 laptop initiative as part of this comprehensive school reform. When appropriate, we will adapt our processes to
available technology and require students, faculty, and staff to learn new ways to meet requirements. Adopting available technology and incorporating the tools of
technology into our processes will demonstrate the rewards and benefits technology can offer. As we improve our proficiency and build confidence in our ability to
use technology in our educational climate it will evolve into one that not only embraces, but seeks out new technology.

This plan is a reflection of our commitment to meeting the challenges of the Digital Age. The successful implementation of this plan will require the participation
and support of all administration and staff. We must remain focused on our purpose while incrementally implementing the various strategies. We must continually
monitor our progress and make changes to the plan as we go. As objectives are met, we will revisit our goals and establish new objectives as needed to ensure
progress.

Our goals are focused on developing more capable educators, providing the highest quality of education possible for the students, and improving the efficiency
and effectiveness of our work processes. Integration of technology into the curriculum is fundamental to reaching our goals for our faculty and students. Adopting
new technology and adapting our work processes around available technology will allow us to work more efficiently and effectively. With the support of our faculty,
staff, and students we will make our vision a reality.




                                                   Needs Assessment
Assessment Process:
"The mission of the public education system of this state is to ensure that all Texas children have access to a quality education that enables them to achieve their
potential and fully participate now and in the future in the social, economic, and educational opportunities of our state and nation. That mission is grounded on the
conviction that a general diffusion of knowledge is essential for the welfare of this state and for the preservation of the liberties and rights of citizens. It is further
grounded on the conviction that a successful public education system is directly related to a strong, dedicated, and supportive family and that parental involvement
in the school is essential for the maximum educational achievement of a child.

The Long-Range Plan for Technology, 2006-2020 directly supports the Mission of Texas Public Education by ensuring an engaging, relevant, and future-focused
system of education for young Texas learners preparing each student for success and productivity as a lifetime learner, a world-class communicator, a competitive
and creative knowledge worker, and an engaged and contributing member of the emerging global digital society."

La Pryor ISD identified lessons learned since LRPT 1999-2006 that pertain to the successful integration of technology into the schools. One of the primary lessons
learned was the lack of collaborative and thoughtful planning. We have taken action to prevent the same problems from happening again. We have put a great
deal of thought and effort into building a comprehensive plan. The planning process involved teachers, students, administrators, and other representatives from
throughout the district including our technology coordinator. Community members, parents and other technological specialists are also involved in developing the
La Pryor ISD Technology Plan. The strategic planning sessions were/will be conducted on the following dates:
September 27,2006
November 15, 2006
January 10, 2007 Meet for the purpose of evaluating vendors proposals for the upcoming E-Rate.
March 5-9, 2007 Teachers and Campus Administrators evaluate with their campus using the TEXAS STAR CHART.
May 16, 2007 Technology Committee will analyze the effectiveness of disbursement decisions in light of implementation priorities.
Sept. 27, 2007 Begin the new year planning process and review current District and Campus plans for new school year.
Sept. 28 through Nov. 14, 2007 Complete and submit Texas Star Chart.
November 15, 2007 Approve and file new E-Plan for 2008 - 2009 so we can file the E-rate form 470 and post RFP for E-Rate 11.

We have also taken action to ensure that our plan is deployable and our goals are attainable. These are the requirements we adhered to when developing our
plan:
it is focused on our mission
it is strategically sound
it is deployable
the timeline and milestones are achievable
it is a useable tool, not just required documentation
it is aligned with the LRPT 2006-2020
it is aligned with the "No Child Left Behind" requirement
it is aligned with the E-Rate requirements
it is evaluated by outside source needs assessment

Before we could identify what actions must be taken to move forward, we had to conduct an assessment of technology at LPISD. The key steps were:
- expressed and documented our vision of the impact technology will have on LPISD based on Teacher, Administrator, Student and Community Technology
Surveys
- defined our mission as it pertains to the use of technology
- assessed the current state of technology based on The TEXAS STAR CHART ( Campus and Teacher StaR Chart)
- conducted a needs assessment by an outside source
- identified known hardware and software requirements for the existing infrastructure
- outlined our budget strategies
- mapped out our current infrastructure
- conducted a hardware inventory
- established goals and objectives

Goals and objectives had to meet the following standards:
- goals and objectives are congruent with TEA/legal requirements
- goals and objectives are focused on helping us do our primary mission better
- goals are finite, obtainable on a 12 - 36 month timeline
- objectives are concrete and specific, obtainable on a 12 - 36 month timeline

We have also formed a Technology Committee to manage and direct the implementation of this plan. The committee will develop the specific methodology that will
be used to oversee the implementation of the plan. The foundation of their policy will be fact-based decision-making and adherence to effective school correlates.

Effective School Correlates that guide district and campus leadership.
- Instructional leadership
- High expectations
- School climate
- Instructional focus
- Measurement
- Positive home-school relationships
- Decisions will be made closest to the participants in the context of the problem.
- Decisions will be made based on an analysis of appropriate data.

The district will pursue continuous improvement in technology by using an improvement cycle that is focused on the mission of the district. This is a cycle of
planning, implementing, checking progress, and acting based on evidence of progress.

Develop a plan:
- Pick an area for improvement and determine what is desired
- Analyze where we are now and determine a probable cause
- Develop a strategy for improvement with a timeline based upon the most relevant research
- Determine the resources necessary to accomplish the strategy
- Assign responsibilities; determine what data will be used to evaluate the plan, and how it will be captured

Implement the plan:
- Try out the improvement strategy by implementing the necessary steps
- Capture the data for analysis
- Study (check) the results
- Evaluate the plan and see if the strategy works
- Check for unintended consequences
- Act on the results
- Decide to codify, modify, or abandon the strategy/plan.
- Begin the process again

As outlined in the correlates of effective schools, continued support from the faculty, administrators, and the entire learning community is a key to the success of
our students.
Existing Conditions:
Situated at the intersection of U.S. Highways 57 and 83, La Pryor ISD serves the community of La Pryor, Texas, with an approximate population of 2,500.
Covering 268 square miles, La Pryor ISD is identified as District 29A. Total student enrollment for the 2005-2006 School Year is 487 with an 82% socio-
economically disadvantaged population. La Pryor ISD currently has one elementary school which has grades PreK – 6th grade and one secondary school which is
a combined grades 7-12, all residing on the same physical campus. At La Pryor ISD, our goal is to put current and future technologies in the hands of our students
and faculty today, so that they will be prepared to face the challenges of tomorrow. Our information technology mission statement is clear: ―We will develop in our
students and faculty an appreciation for the value of technology and the impact it has on their quality of life‖.
The district currently supports 173 Apple laptops with Machine Model:iBook G4,CPU Type: PowerPC G4 (1.1), CPU Speed: 1.2 GHz, L2 Cache (per CPU): 512
KB, Memory:768 MB, Bus Speed: 133 MHz, Boot ROM Version: 4.8.7 and 217 PC workstations specifically deployed for instructional use, with the minimum
hardware requirements being an i586 CPU of no less than 450MHz with 128MB RAM. Current workstation requirements for newly purchased or built computers is
a minimum of an i686 CPU of no less than 800MHz and 512MB RAM, which will help to insure that the district maintains full compatibility with current and near-
future software requirements. Currently supported workstation operating systems are Windows 2000 Professional or XP Professional and Mac OSX. (Elementary
and Secondary Campus). All district administrative and support workstations run Windows 2000 or XP Professional as well. A 23-unit wireless lab, 30-unit Alpha
Smart Lab, and 95 Danas have been added to the campuses. In addition, the district also utilizes a distance learning and video conferencing facility in the
elementary (H323) and secondary campus (H323), and two portable Polycom video units at the high school accessible to both students for instructional purposes
and faculty for administrative training and continuing education.
The entire district backbone is networked via multi-mode gigabit fiber optic and 802.11b/g wireless technologies. The district intranet is serviced by a mix of
Windows 2000 and 2003 Servers, supporting a Windows 2000/XP Active Directory domain model. Publicly accessible Internet content is serviced by Symantec. All
district workstations have access to the Internet via Category 5E Ethernet or 802.11b/g wireless media and CIPA-required internet filtering is done with Symantec
Websense. District WAN connections are provided by ESC20 (San Antonio) and ATT Texas via two T-1 lines (ESC20 and 3.0 IMA with ATT). We also project the
need for 6.0 IMA for Internet traffic due to our 1-1 laptop initiative at LPISD. This prediction is based on bandwidth reports for ATT that shows 85 to 100%
bandwidth useage at all times.

La Pryor ISD employs a Technology Coordinator who is proficient in system, network, and information security administration to implement and oversee the
deployment and integration of technology in the district. La Pryor ISD also employees an Instructional Technology Facilitator that serves both high school and
elementary. Contracted services and network engineers are provided for the proper maintenance of some of the core network components and for the
maintenance of workstations and servers that were purchased with a support contract.


Technology Needs:
Network Assessment for LaPryor ISD
June 29, 2006

Executive Summary
GDS was commissioned by Lapryor ISD to review existing network configurations as well as troubleshoot issues with its installed base of wireless gear. LPISD’s
network consists of primarily (with minimal exception) industry-current Cisco equipment. The network is configured in a ―collapsed core‖ design with a Cisco
Catalyst 6509 switch at the core providing fiber connectivity back to remote buildings and closets, as well as layer three routing services for the environment.
Approximately 15 Cisco 1200 series wireless access points, as well as 2 Cisco 350 series wireless bridges comprise the wireless environment. Power for the
access points is provided by Cisco inline Power over Ethernet (PoE) switch ports in the local closets. Nearly all fiber runs back to the core switch are via multimode
Gigabit Ethernet connectivity.

Overall Findings
Review of existing configurations on the core switch as well as the edge switches proved consistent with both industry best practices as well as Cisco’s
recommended design criteria. Virtual LANs are configured on the core switch to route between functional units as well as a separate VLAN for the entire wireless
environment. Performance tests using extended pings resulted in very consistent results. As expected in this type of design, performance was consistent from
most any edge switch attachment point to the core of the network. GDS therefore does not recommend any changes in the overall design of the network at this
time. However, should the network grow proportionally larger in the future, we recommend investigating the insertion of a third layer (distribution) in between the
core switch and the edge switches. Additionally, to mitigate the risk of total network failure in the event of a core switch meltdown, we recommend LPISD
investigate the feasibility of purchasing a redundant core switch. Secondary fiber runs from each closet edge switch can then be utilized to further provide
resiliency in this type of design. GDS can assist with this design change as well as provide a bill of materials list along with estimated costs for professional
services should LIPSD so desire.


Wireless Bridges
LPISD utilizes an outdoor wireless bridge link between its administration building and its High School building to support the transport of data communications.
Additionally, the Superintendent’s home located directly behind the Administration facility utilizes an access point configured to communicate back to the High
School and attach to the network. When GDS arrived on site, all three of these facilities were experiencing very bizarre and erratic behavior relative to the wireless
bridge link, often requiring LIPSD personnel to intervene with manual up/down configuration changes to restore the links during and immediately after a power
outage or other disruption in service.

Upon further investigation and testing, GDS determined that a likely cause for these problems with the wireless bridge environment stemmed from having very old
and outdated software levels on the devices in question. GDS downloaded the latest revisions of software for each of the Cisco 350 bridges and reloaded the
devices. Upon reload, the wireless link between the two buildings as well as the Access Point at the Superintendent’s home returned to available status
immediately and the erratic behavior was no longer present.

GDS recommends the replacement of these two bridges as they have been End of Life’d by Cisco and will ultimately be dropped from technical support at some
time in the future. We recommend LIPSD replace these two bridges with the more current platform using Cisco 1300 series outdoor bridges.

Although the existing 15 or so 1200 series access points servicing the wireless environment inside each building are not experiencing issues at this time, GDS
recommends that LIPSD download the latest version of software (General Development – GD) available from Cisco, and apply to all access points. Doing so will
ensure that all bug fixes as well as overall support levels are being met and will ultimately protect LIPSD’s investment.

Recommendations
1. Core Switch – GDS recommends the purchase of a secondary core switch to protect LIPSD from a total network outage in the event of a primary switch failure.
We also recommend utilizing (and installing wherever needed) secondary pairs of fiber from each closet edge switch in this design, further providing network level
redundancy and resiliency.
2. Wireless Management – GDS recommends that LIPSD purchase a Cisco Wireless LAN Solutions Engine (WLSE) to help manage the current, as well as any
future, installed base of wireless access points. More specifically, the WLSE Express can be configured to provide high levels of security (utilizing Cisco’s ACS
Security Authentication Server built-in) for the entire wireless environment. Additionally, overall manageability and configuration of the devices is significantly more
robust using this solution. GDS can provide professional services to install and configure this unit, as well as provide knowledge transfer to LIPSD personnel to
assist in the transition upon initial installation and configuration.
3. Outdated wireless bridges – GDS recommends the replacement of the existing Cisco 350 series bridges with more current Cisco 1300 series bridges.
4. Security – Although LPISD utilizes some industry recommended components such as a Cisco PIX 506 firewall as well as URL filtering; overall security of the
entire environment is at risk due to the absence of intrusion detection and prevention technologies. GDS recommends a tiered approach such as that
recommended by Cisco in its ―Self Defending Networks‖ model. As such, GDS recommends replacing the existing PIX firewall in favor of the new Adaptive
Security Appliance (ASA) platform. The ASA supports firewall functionality as does the PIX, however, it also supports an Intrusion Prevention System (IPS) module
to help LIPSD guard against malicious or accidental threats from both outward facing connections like the Internet and the ESC connection points, but more
importantly, from internal risks posed by infected hosts within the network. Additionally, the ASA supports VPN connections, both from roaming users as well as
any point to point connections from outside entities requiring secure access. Cisco’s CSA (Cisco Security Agent) solution is also recommended to protect hosts
(both servers and individual host machines) from Day Zero virus and worm attacks. GDS can again provide consulting and professional services assistance to
LIPSD for the design and implementation of this system.
5. Network Management – GDS recommends the purchase of an SNMP based network management tool to assist personnel in the management and
troubleshooting aspects of the network. Several very cost effective tools are available from both Cisco as well as other vendors. GDS can assist with the
identification and configuration aspects should LPISD desire to pursue this.

The district currently operates a Gigabit multimode fiber optic network backbone with 100-Mbit Category 5e cabling drops in each classroom and office that can
already support multicast and H.323 protocols. Currently, the WAN connection to the Internet and distance learning services is a dedicated T-1 to ESC Region 20.
The district operates two separate networks: a Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) for public Internet services and a private intranet for students and faculty. The entire
Layer-2 topology is powered by Cisco Systems Catalyst Switches that provide each workstation with dedicated full-duplex access to a high-speed Gigabit fiber
optic network backbone and Gigabit Category 5e intranet server farm.
Currently, the district network server infrastructure operates on a mixed platform of Windows 2000 Server and Windows 2003 Server. The district intranet operates
a Windows 2000 Active Directory-based domain on two Dell PowerEdge servers that enforce user level authentication at each Windows 2000 Professional or
Windows XP workstations. Active Directory also allows for the control of individual workstations via Group and System Policies and enforces a highly customizable
security model throughout the intranet. Windows 2000 also natively supports ILS services that allow for point-to-point and point-to-multipoint audio and video
conferencing capabilities to every workstation on the local network. Two additional custom-built Windows 2000 member servers provide file sharing, backup, and
database services. Core intranet and public Internet services (i.e. DNS, DHCP, intranet and Internet E-mail, and Web services) are powered by one Dell
PowerEdge server and eight custom-built servers and administrative workstations.
Now our main goal is to provide a wireless environment and wireless laptops to all faculty and students. We are beginning with the High School faculty, then
students in grades 9-12, then grades 7-8. Elementary will be phasing in laptops for all teachers beginning with the 6th grade and working down. Student laptops
will be phased in beginning with the 6th grade and working down through 4th grade. Danas and Alpha Smarts will be used for the lower grades. Another goal is to
maintain a minimum of five workstations per classroom throughout the district until a one to one ratio is met. This will help to insure that all students have an equal
opportunity to become familiar with and learn to use technology to assist them in the classroom. Teachers will find it easier to convey their vision of learning to their
students through the use of instructional software programs and Internet-based research. Students will develop a better understanding of how technology can
assist them with learning at their own pace and on their own level. This will also bring programs like Lexia, SuccessMaker, LightSpan and Plato directly to the
student at point of need. This will also provide a more flexible schedule without having to take students to a dedicated lab where scheduling can become an issue.
The secondary school is redesigning how we do school, so that there is a clear focus on students and on the quality of the work provided to students—work that
students find interesting, engaging, challenging and satisfying which results in their learning what is expected.
A third goal is to strengthen the core server infrastructure of the district be adding four additional Dell PowerEdge servers to meet the needs of the growing
network. These servers can provide additional network-wide backup and recovery of data, intranet virus scanning, and secondary database services, increasing
the fault tolerance of the network as a whole.
The final goal is to continue to expand the physical topology of the network itself by adding additional 802.11b/g wireless access points where needed. The
802.11b/g wireless services will also be expanded, moving from a point-to-point mode to district-wide broadcasting capability. This would allow for the immediate
setup of a mobile lab anywhere in the district, at any time, without the worry of quantity of drops in a given area. Students could also participate in outdoor lab
environments, such as science or agricultural-based instruction. The Layer-2 switching fabric will also be strengthened with the deployment of additional Cisco
Catalyst switches where needed to provide for future growth. It is also necessary to increase the available WAN throughout by bringing in at least one additional T-
1 line to accommodate web hosting. This additional line would be used for dedicated access to the Internet, freeing up our current T-1 to be used strictly for video
streaming and distance learning. LPISD will also needs to have an IP/TV Broadcast Server to expedite the use of streaming video (POWERMEDIA Plus and video
on demand) in to the curriculum.




                            Goals, Objectives, and Strategies

Evaluation Process:
The evaluation of the elements of the plan will be ongoing as teaching and learning strategies utilize the technology to reach the educational goals of the district.

The plan itself will be evaluated and updated as needed by the Technology Planning Committee, Superintendent's Administrative Cabinet, District Improvement
Planning Committee and Campus Planning Committees. The technology committee will meet at least 4 times per year - September, December, January and May
of each year to monitor the progress of the program.


Evaluation Method:
Evaluation of the Technology Plan will be a systematic ongoing process. All aspects of the Plan will be evaluated formally four times each year: September,
December, January and May.
The Technology Committee and Administrative Cabinet will be responsible for the ongoing evaluation of this plan. The intention of the evaluation will be to make
decisions on the impact that technology has on the learning process for all students. A report will be given to the Superintendent and the Board of Trustees after
each formal evaluation occurs.
Texas STaR Chart results for each campus will be used to help assess progress made toward meeting the goals of the Long Range Plan for Technology. District
developed instruments will be used to assess their level of technology implementation and progress made.
Other methods used for evaluation will include but are not limited to:
· Surveys of the staff conducted yearly in regards to their use of technology in the classroom
. Data from the teacher appraisal system and the Professional Development and Appraisal System (PDAS) will be reviewed to monitor the percentage of teachers
demonstrating "proficient" or "exceeding expectations" on technology related indicators.
· Informal interviews conducted once a semester by the campus representative
· Records of staff member participation in technology training monitored by sign-in sheets and teacher professional development records.
· Integration of training into the classroom as measured by lesson designs and number and type of technology and distance learning projects.
. Student passing rate on TAKS increases for all sub-populations. SAT/ACT scores over the next five years should rise and the number of students taking these
test will increase with the changing of curriculum strategies which are engaging and embracing technology. Seniors and Juniors will be given the opportunity to
take practice tests before they actually take the SAT/ACT.
· Monitoring and documentation of community access to technology resources and information on the campuses and on the web site.
· Monitoring and documentation of community involvement
· Yearly inventory of hardware and software
· Support and maintenance of technology as documented by technical support logs.
