Given time and the opportunity to interact, steering committee members will identify belief
statements that characterize technology’s central purpose in the school.
Given time and existing belief statements, participants will prioritize the statements from mostsignificant to least significant as they apply to the central focus of technology in the school.3.
Given prioritized belief statements, a writing committee will formulate a draft of the technologyvision and mission statement. The statement will be given to other steering committee membersfor further input and possible suggestions. The writing committee will be responsible forincorporating the suggestions into the final draft. This process will continue until all steering
committee members have come to a consensus concerning the content of the technology’s
mission and vision statement.
