Division Technology Plan- 2018 Update

RATIONALE

     At present, the Virginia Department of Education is preparing guidelines for technology planning that will cover years 2017-2022.

 

     VDOE has developed an addendum to the current plan and school divisions were encouraged to do the same for the time span through 2018.

 

     By planning through 2018, ACPS will have one year between the time the state technology plan is approved (2017) and the date that we will need to have a new division plan aligned to the state’s plan.

 

     Revisions reflected in the 2018 update include:

a.     The executive summary, vision statement, and mission statement have been revised.

b.     Content has been added that is specific to the one-to-one initiative. The planning process’ description has been updated and the “Connection to The Division’s Mission” section has been modified.

c.      A new Needs Assessment was conducted and a number of conclusions that were drawn from the assessment have been included.

d.     The existing plan’s Goals section has been updated in order to include the one-to-one initiative’s goals.

e.     The budget section has been updated to include expenditures related to the one-to-one initiative.

f.       The Acceptable Use Policy section has been updated.

g.     The Internet Safety section has been updated. Inactive URLs have been removed.

h.     A Graphical Summary of the Needs Assessment data has been added.

 

     Members of the 1:1 committee volunteered for several subcommittees that completed a variety of tasks toward the preparation of the technology plan.  Subcommittee members advised final edits by May 19.

 

     The 2018 Technology Plan update is presented for your consideration and approval.
