  • Technology Purpose Statement and Organization Princeton ISD envisions an educational environment in which technology is integrated seamlessly into the curriculum. In order to support our general mission and more specific mission for educational technology, Princeton Independent School District will utilize instructional technology in the classroom for teaching and learning and in administrative tasks for the efficient operation of the school. This long range technology plan is meant to guide and facilitate the visioning, scope of the educational objectives and consistent implementation across the district of technology integration strategies in support of all students, their development of critical thinking skills through the execution of rigorous curriculum standards. To accomplish this goal, Princeton ISD educational technology is organized into four areas: Classroom Integration to Support Teaching and Learning, Professional Development, Infra Structure and Equipment, and Support/Management. 1. Classroom Integration to Support Teaching and Learning Principals at each school are ultimately responsible for: A. Integrate TEA required TA TEKS into the classroom curriculum. B. Continue teacher technology “skills and integration competencies” based on the 8th grade TA TEKS. C. Continue/modify/evaluate technology integration teacher mentoring program. D. Monitor/Measure the success of TA TEKS integration. E. Provide district wide technology integrated electronic curriculum guides. F. Utilize content software, e.g. video streaming, TAKS tutorials, Inspiration, KidPix, Credit Recovery. G. Principals will create, modify and implement Campus Technology Integration Action Plans to increase campus technology integration 2. Professional Development A. Application Skills: Educate teachers at a level of technology skills sufficient to implement TA TEKS. B. Integration Skills: Educate teachers to integrate TA TEKS into the classroom curriculum. C. Continue to offer quality staff development through programs like Intel Teach to the Future, LOTI... D. Train technology staff in existing and emerging technologies. E. Technology integrated electronic curriculum F. Video Conferencing G. Support Community education through technology 3. Infrastructure and Equipment A. Provide sufficient numbers for the integration of technology into the curriculum. B. Provide for the optimal placement of electronic equipment. C.

Provide for the management, coordination, standardization and use of all hardware and software to maximize interoperability both inside and outside the district. C. Enhance Communication. D. Provide policies for the safe use of network resources E. Pursue grant opportunities. Background This plan is based on information drawn from many sources. They include: -Administrator counsel at District and Campus level -Teacher input at all campuses -Media Specialist / experienced Instructional Technology staff -Texas Curriculum Standards: TEKS -Teacher/Student skills proficiency assessment -Hardware and software needs assessment -School Board goals -Various other ISDs including, McKinney, Plano, North East ISD (San Antonio area) -ESC Region 10 support and resources -Review of literature linking successful technology integration to curriculum Parameters This Long-Range Technology Plan is driven by the state curriculum standards and supports the educational mission and instructional goals of Princeton 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 the newly adopted Technology Applications Standards for Beginning Teachers. General Information Princeton ISD will has five schools: Lacy Elementary, James A. Godwin Elementary, L.R. Huddleston Intermediate, Clark Junior High School, and Princeton High School. The school totals are: Lacy Elementary: 604 students with 38 teachers; Godwin Elementary: 380 students with 27 teachers Huddleton Intermediate: 376 students with 24 teachers; Clark Junior High: 380 students with 29 teachers; Princeton High School: 761 students with 46 teachers. The technology committee consists of the head principal at each school, the media specialist at each school, the district technology integration specialist and technology director.

  • Evaluation Evaluation Process: The evaluation process is divided into sub-sections to consist of: -Yearly update of the technology plan in May, based upon smaller evaluations done at least quarterly. Quarterly evaluation: -Those staff persons responsible for a particular goal will meet to report on the implementation, monitoring, and adjusting of objective and strategies. -Central administrative staff and campus mentors and principals will evaluate staff development and teaching and learning technology integration. They will: -keep track of who has attended training workshops -meet with the teachers and trainer to assess the success of project integration and technology lesson plan delivery, reporting, guiding and adjusting as is appropriate. -The technology director, assist director, mentors and principals assesses and evaluates teacher skills after teachers acquire and report new skills. -The technology director assigns and monitors work order requests, response time and completion, ensuring the timely maintenance and repair of all equipment. -The master network technician and technology director daily monitor the infrastructure, ensuring its health and quality performance Evaluation Method: Integration: A data base may be kept on teacher projects and lesson plans. Principals track integration through submission of weekly lesson plans, creation and revision of unit lesson plans, reports from campus mentor and formal teacher appraisals. Teacher training data base is kept of workshops taken and skills mastered. Prescriptive suggestions are given to teachers to support the acquisition of application and integration skills and teacher action is monitored to help ensure successful academic teaching and learning. Teaching: The key to help teachers teach is to give timely and relevant support and training. Training is given and skills mastered just prior to technology lesson activities and competencies being utilized and taught in the classroom. Follow-up support and what went well and what could be improved is then given just after lesson are taught, thereby helping to ensure and reinforce future success. Enabling Student Academic Success: Technology integration activities in support of mastering academic standards depend on the -reliability of equipment, -robust infrastructure performance and -access to local and Internet resources. Daily monitoring of our infrastructure via server utilities help to ensure successful activities. Well trained and successful teachers are a second requirement of success. We require and enforce 12 hours of relevant and timely technology training. We have a strong technology mentor program for teacher support. The teachers, in turn, teach and model what they have been taught.
  • Technologies and Telecommunications: We have dedicated four full time staff positions to ensure the acquisition and deployment of technologies and telecommunication service. Our technician to PC ratio is 1 : 450, ensuring timely response to work orders and maintenance issues. We update our email, Internet and web servers and software regularly. We stay abreast of new developments and network training each year. We support up-to-date equipment with adequate funding. Meeting timelines for implementation: The expression of time lines to meet strategies and objectives is clearly stated in our technology plan. We have set and met goals consistently by creating, following, reviewing and adjusting, if necessary, the implementation of goals with intermediate deadlines.
