EXECUTIVE SUMMARY
Purpose
Data-driven decision making is key to a successful school district. Technology provides the means for collecting and analyzing financial, employee and student data. Technology is critical to the daily operation of our district. It is the backbone of our financial and student management systems, our libraries, our food service and teacher administrative tasks (grades, attendance, lesson plans). Most importantly, it is a powerful tool for improving instruction and student achievement. Callisburg ISD has prepared this Long-Range Technology Plan to articulate a common vision for technology in the district and identify the strategies that will help us to use advanced technology to improve the academic achievement, including technology literacy, of all students, to develop critical thinking skills that are essential for academic and workplace success and to build the capacity of all teachers to integrate technology effectively into curriculum and instruction. This plan provides for appropriate maintenance and use of existing technology in the District, as well as for the purchase, training and integration of emerging technologies.
Background
This plan is based on information drawn from many sources including:
• A review of the literature to identify best practices
• A survey of school site hardware and instructional media
• Teacher interviews
• Interviews with site and district administrators and representatives from the Callisburg community
• District and campus improvement plans
• Texas Campus STaR Chart
Parameters
This Long-Range Technology Plan is driven by the state curriculum standards and supports the educational mission and instructional goals of Callisburg ISD and by 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 describe 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 at 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 also is consistent with the recommendations for 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 SBEC Technology Applications Standards for Beginning Teachers.

In designing this plan, the committee made several assumptions about elementary vs. secondary classrooms:

Elementary Classroom Secondary Classroom
Multi-tasking Self-contained
Small groups of Mostly large group activities
different activities
going on at once
Single teacher or a Single teacher
team of teachers Traditional classroom

For the purpose of this plan “secondary” is defined as grades 6-12.

NEEDS ASSESSMENT
Assessment Process: A comprehensive needs assessment utilizing teacher/student interviews, District and campus improvement plans, inventories and the Texas Campus STaR Chart was conducted to analyze the current status of technology in the district and determine future needs. Items analyzed included: increasing bandwidth due to teacher needs, wireless access needs, providing mobile learning devices at all campuses, the need for additional student workstation and/or mobile learning devices, hardware and software needed to provide a virtual classroom setting, change in Technology Application TEKS, new course offerings for high school, student achievement, technology resources, staff development, allowing students to bring their own devices to school and technical support.

EVALUATION
Evaluation Process:
Evaluation of the Technology Plan will be a systematic ongoing process. All aspects of the Plan will be evaluated formally two times each year in December and May.

A report will be given to the Superintendent and the Board of Trustees after each formal evaluation occurs.

Evaluation Method:
STaR Chart results for each campus will be used to help Callisburg ISD assess its progress toward meeting the goals of the Long Range Plan for Technology.

Other methods used for evaluation will include:
State Assessment Results
• Surveys of the staff conducted twice yearly in regards to their use of technology in the classroom.
• Informal interviews conducted once a semester by campus Technology Plan Committee representatives.
• Records of staff participation in technology training monitored by attendance and professional development records.
• Integration of technology training into the classroom as measured by lesson plans and number and type of technology.
• Yearly inventory of hardware and software.
• Support and maintenance of technology as documented by technical support records.
