In September 2012, the Information Technology Planning Committee on plan revision undertook thechallenge of revising the district’s technology plan. Committee members focused on ICT standards, professional development, media and library skills and information literacy, using technology, disaster recovery and preparing the network and infrastructure to meet all standards of a 21
century equippededucational environment.Professional Development is key in this plan in order to continue to advance skill levels and movingthe district forward with a 21st century focus. The goal for technology training for teachers for the next3 years is to not only to learn important skills but to also demonstrate technology embedded teachingand learning in the classroom. The Technology Planning Committee, along with input from the Staff Development Committee, has developed a new approach for delivering technology professionaldevelopment. Beginning with summer 2012, technology training will consist of "tour packages" or three separate, leveled sessions on a particular topic or focus. Stipends will only be awarded after attending the three separate sessions with a resulting technology endeavor or "project.” TheTechnology Committee recognizes that staff development opportunities for all staff is essential inhelping students secure the skills and knowledge needed to demonstrate ICT competency.Strategies to continue building upon our infrastructure to support a 1:1 and a BYOD model continuesthroughout all Attendance Areas, Schools and Buildings of the Fall Mountain Regional SchoolDistrict. Upon reviewing all key elements, the Technology Committee sets forth the revised DistrictPlan for 2012-2015.
