Goal 1

  1. 1. Technology Plan Casey County Schools Liberty, Kentucky http://www.education.ky.org/ http://www.casey.k12.ky.us/content_page.aspx?cid=2 Prepared Date: 11/13/2009 Update to Plan Date: Plan Start Date: July 1, 2010 Plan Expiration Date: September 30, 2011 Approved Date: Pending Commonwealth Approval
  2. 2. Acknowledgments There are many who contributed data, gave directional input, agreed to monitor and evaluate, procured funding, and participated in the creation of this technology plan. The persons listed here represent special contributors in our efforts to enhance quality of service and affect student learning. This plan does not list or otherwise cover all aspects or acknowledge every effort of our technology program. It does highlight major support structures to address functional needs of the district and schools.

The majority of workstations falling below standard generally fell into one of three categories: 1) were slated for replacement within 6 months; 2) insufficient RAM; 3) inadequate HDD. All new workstations are ordered with upgraded RAM and HDDs which should extend the fullest potential of the workstations for the entire life cycle. Several file servers are nearing replacement.

  4. 4. Executive Summary We have used the KETS Master Plan as a guide for successful planning and implementation strategies since 1993. The 2007 - 2012 Education Technology Master Plan is the third major plan and we still use it to guide, plan and budget overall operations. The initiatives and programs identified within this plan support the Kentucky Board of Education goals of (1) High student performance, (2) A strong and supportive environment in each school for every child, and (3) High-quality teaching and administration in addition to the Casey County Board of Education Commitment to Student Achievement. The focus of this plan is to identify and ensure the infrastructure necessary to support those identified goals and commitment, provide the necessary tools to identify student needs via formative and summative assessments, and to have properly trained teachers and staff to intervene on the students’ behalf to help them achieve their highest potential. 1
  5. 5. Planning Process / Methodology This technology plan was devised by (1) identifying student educational need(s); (2) setting a plan of action where technology can server to address those needs; (3) setting success goals with oversight; and (4) procure funds to support the action plan. The tools and guides associated with infrastructure, learning devices, software and services are the 2007 – 2012 KETS Master Plan and the budget for the plan years. 2
  6. 6. Technology Vision and Goals We envision technology defining our school district. Every aspect of the educational process from administrative to student evaluation requires expert command of its use. The ability to focus efforts on specific learning needs and the latitude for self-directed learning are achievable through the use of technology; therefore, we will adapt our methods and tools to advance education and cultivate devotion to learning. Goal 1 Provide network infrastructure capable of delivering reliable, high-speed access to teaching/learning resources. Action Plan: Strategies/Activities Strategy/Activity Instructional Evaluation Timeline Person(s) Funding Source Outcome Responsible High-speed network Students will Network uptime 7/1/10 – 9/30/11 CIO/DTC Formula Title IID connectivity access learning $16,536 annual resources, research and communication tools Maintain routers Students will Network uptime 7/1/10 – 9/30/11 CIO/DTC KETS and switches access learning $16,100 annual resources, research and communication tools 3

  9. 9. Student Technology Literacy Skills [The plan must have clear goals and a specific implementation plan detailing how students will acquire technology and information literacy skills as adopted by the Kentucky Board of Education in the Program of Studies for Kentucky Schools Grades Primary-12. The plan must also have a specific implementation plan detailing how students will become technology literate by the end of the 8th grade. Use format shown below. Insert additional goals as necessary.] Link to the Program of Studies: http://www.education.ky.gov/kde/instructional+resources/curriculum+documents+and+resources/program+of+studies/default.htm Goal 1 Students will use technology to learn, to communicate, increase productivity and become competent users of technology. Students will manage and create effective oral, written and multimedia communication in a variety of forms and contexts.

  12. 12. Despite current economic trends that may continue into the next two years, we are positioned to not only maintain current levels of technology but plan to meet the growing needs of our district through server virtualization and the new Microsoft LIVE site with extended collaboration tools. IT staffing is set at a most crucial point where we can sufficiently support the technology for the coming year. While we have added one more full time technical position at the district level, mobile communication devices and mobile computing have most certainly required additional support. The number of teacher and administrator workstations lacking technology hardware items such as DVD readers and writers is a great need at this time. While 95% and 91% of the teacher and administrator workstations respectively met minimum standards, other hardware needs were not part of the standard. The most recent Technology Tools Readiness Survey shows that the percentage of student workstations that meet the minimum standards was 93% overall. The majority of workstations falling below standard generally fell into one of three categories: 1) were slated for replacement within 6 months; 2) insufficient RAM; 3) inadequate HDD. All new workstations are ordered with upgraded RAM and HDDs which should extend the fullest potential of the workstations for the entire life cycle. Several file servers are nearing replacement. One in particular hosts our KET Encyclomedia as a “local host”. We are planning to further consolidate our services using virtualization. The installation of “smart-classroom technology” products and services such as projectors, document cameras, personal response systems, and locally hosted Encyclomedia adds to the tools requiring maintenance and replacement at various intervals. A ten-year minimum operations report has been presented to the CEO and CFO with projections for annual maintenance and replacement that will enable the district to predict operation/ownership costs. 9
