  17. 17. techplan2000 District Technology Goals Section 3 District Technology Plan Focus From the North Central Regional Educational Laboratory's Teachers Guide Why Use Technology? 1. To facilitate and support student achievement of essential learning outcomes 2. To provide all students with appropriate technology literacy skill for the 21st century including social and economic prosperity 3. To provide teachers, staff, and community with the tools necessary to support student achievement of essential learning outcomes Research and best practices show that the relationship between technology and student learning involves the understanding of the following concepts: · Technology empowers new solutions and opens doors to learning opportunities previously unavailable. · The design of the technology tool and the instructional methods surrounding its use need to be congruent. · Hands-on-access to computers and ancillary equipment for all students on a regular basis is a determining factor in the success of technology. The Teacher Connection Teachers are at the forefront of making learning with technology happen based on the results of a comprehensive needs assessment. Ultimately, it is up to the classroom teacher to bring a building or district technology plan to life. National Educational Technology Standards (NETS) define a set of technology literacy standards for students in the following six catagories. · Basic operation and concepts of technology systems · Social, ethical and human issues related to technology file:///Macintosh HD/Desktop Folder/LHTechNet/TechPlan2000/techplan2000.htm (17 of 84) [12/26/2000 1:41:04 PM]

Tolerance for computer downtime when repair or troubleshooting is taking place. Network Downtime Over the past 5 years, Lake Hamilton School District has experienced a very minimal amount of network downtime. We have become used to the network operating properly 99% of the time. Most of our downtime has been involved with power outages from storms or other related electrical problems. Cumulated downtime for this school year (00-01) is 4.5 hours of school time. Total network downtime for 99-00 school year was approx. 6 hours. Power and Computers When power affects our network, it is not a matter of just turning computers and hubs off and back on again. Computers are not like TVs or lights or any other devise that relies upon power alone. Servers, routers, hubs and switches require a specific sequence of startup. Restarting equipment is the first step but there are several other problems that can arise from a power outage. Specifically, surges, spikes, and sags can cause damage to equipment that may not show up for months. Faulty power, like fluctuation of voltage can cause motherboard components to degrade. Flickers of the lights, blown fuses and brownouts demonstrate this. We might not see immediate effects but the damage is there and it costs us $1000s of dollars for replacements and repair of computer equipment. Goals and solutions for power problems: · Surge protectors on every network device. · Battery backups on every server, hub, switch and router. · Battery backups on every Office MacSchool workstation. · Adequate power for computer labs. · 20amp dedicated circuits per 5 computers file:///Macintosh HD/Desktop Folder/LHTechNet/TechPlan2000/techplan2000.htm (23 of 84) [12/26/2000 1:41:04 PM]

For each building, there are 3-4 team members and a Team Leader. The Team Leader (usually a 3rd year Tech student) has a good understanding of the building's network and has the ability to locate problems and troubleshoot them quickly. This Cooperative Learning technique allows students to work together as a team to solve computer and network problems. Most of the tech students begin to focus toward specialty areas in Technology after their first year in the LH Tech Program. The Tech Program is currently an Early Bird course and the students arrive at 7:10 am. This is a good time to run network cable and troubleshoot computers. Currently the students are involved in designing and installing the 10baseT network cabling systems for all buildings where they have tested wiring at below category five standards. They are actually up in the ceilings pulling and terminating the wiring that will connect the computers and other devices. Once completed, they will be the primary trouble-shooters who will help to maintain the network connections. These skills alone will provide the student numerous job opportunities upon graduation. file:///Macintosh HD/Desktop Folder/LHTechNet/TechPlan2000/techplan2000.htm (30 of 84) [12/26/2000 1:41:04 PM]

  32. 32. techplan2000 About The A+SSESS!, A+dvanced Learning System (A+LS) With A+SSESS!, the teacher can diagnose and position the student into The A+dvanced Learning System (A+LS) curriculum according to identified skill deficiencies. A+SSESS! covers not only basic skills, but all A+LS content, including Science, History, and Geography. A+SSESS! is available in four testing modules: Primary, Intermediate, Advanced, and High School. These modules are designed to be administered to grade levels 1-3, 4-6, 7-9, and 10-12, respectively. The steps to use A+SSESS! are summarized below: * The student takes the assigned pretest in one class period. * The teacher reviews student results and approves the A+SSESS! generated lesson plan. * The student completes the lesson plan. * The student takes the posttest and the teacher evaluates the report for academic gains. Because A+SSESS! is a companion tool to A+LS, the teacher has access to existing class and student records as well as rosters when assigning pretests and posttests. The pretests and posttests are available for each grade level and curriculum area. The pretest helps pinpoint individual or class skill deficiencies and automatically prepares a lesson plan to address these specific needs. The posttest measures and records student academic gains. Each question on the tests is associated with a specific learning objective. It's as easy as 1, 2, 3, 4. Four simple steps are all it takes to assess a student's academic skill level and then to align that student to the A+LS curriculum. Step 1: The teacher logs into A+SSESS! and selects the appropriate class or student. He or she then schedules a pretest and a posttest for the student or for the entire class. At any time, the teacher can review the pretest or posttest material. Step 2: The student(s) logs into the A+SSESS! program, and the scheduled test appears in the order assigned by the teacher. A pretest or posttest is designed to be completed in one or two class periods. The tests are a combination of multiple choice and completion questions based on the A+LS curriculum. Step 3: The teacher reviews the pretest report(s) to determine individual skill deficiencies. A few simple mouse clicks create an entirely new personalized learning program from the A+SSESS! report recommendations. The new personalized learning program can replace or append to the student's current assignment list in A+LS. Step 4: The student(s) logs into A+LS and completes the new PLP from the assignment list.

This staff development has continued to expand each year by providing training on three levels and also parent training for the community. Goals 2000 training and local district funding has enabled hundreds of teachers to be trained in computer basics, word processing, spreadsheet, database, presentation software, webpage design, Internet for the classroom, and filmmaking. Student aides have also been introduced in order to work with teachers and parents for more individual attention. Unfortunately, Goals 2000 funding has not been received by our district for the last two years. We are struggling to keep up with technology which is forcing our district to use available local funding. We hope that we will be named as a recipient for Goals 2000 funding again in order to keep our teachers and community trained in the latest technology.

  48. 48. techplan2000 Section 07 Computer Count Periphial Count SonicWall Internet Filter A device has been installed in our district for filtering out inappropriate Internet sites. It blocks about 90% of those sites. This device does not take the place of monitoring students while they are on the web, but helps eliminate chances of accidentally entering inappropriate sites and limits most of the curiosity surfing. The SonicWall acts as a firewall, protecting the district computer network from outside attacks such as "the ping of death", IP Spoofing, and syn flood attacks. The SonicWall was installed in April 1997 in order to protect and filter Internet traffic for the Jr. High and High School networks. Since June 1999, Primary, Intermediate and Middle School are all filtered through the Department Of Information Services' BESS Filtering System. The primary reason the district chose to keep the SonicWall in the upper 5 grades is based on it's overall control of services and extensive logging. SonicWall Upgrade: The current SonicWall is quickly being overloaded with request from the many computers that have been connected to the network over since it was originally installed. Therefore, purchasing and installing the new SonicWall PRO are currently being reviewed. It is expected that the install date will be Sprin or Summer 2000.

  53. 53. techplan2000 Grant proposal for Smart Start Initiative Lake Hamilton Primary School School Background: Lake Hamilton School District is a rural public school district that serves children grades K &endash; 12. It was established in 1945. Lake Hamilton began as a small country school seven miles west of Hot Springs, Arkansas with a student enrollment of 537. In the years since it was opened, Lake Hamilton School District has grown tremendously and is continuing to grow every year. The current enrollment is 3,850 students. Two buildings are being added in the next year in order to accommodate the increasing number of students and staff members. Our vision at Lake Hamilton School District is "Hand in hand, we build success." Teachers, students, parents, administrators, and community leaders work as a team in order to ensure the success of all students. The LHSD Technology Mission is to provide all students and staff with equity and access to technology so that they may function in a technological society. Lake Hamilton Smart Start Initiative: Our District is focused on creating the best learning environment possible for our students K through 12. At the K-4 level, our focus is on meeting and exceeding grade level requirements in both reading, writing and math skills. To achieve this goal, the K-1 school will reserve a portion of the school day to for computer lab time in order to enhance reading and math skills of the students. This technology initiative will be a supplement to the elementary level Smart Start initiatives in the classrooms. The District will fund the purchase of licensing for Advanced Learning Systems Curriculum Reading and Mathematics software (A+LS) for the K-1 building. Assessments and Accountability: The A+LS software is correlated directly with the State Department of Education Frameworks for reading, writing and mathematics and has drill, practice, testing and assessment available for each student in each grade level. The A+ASSESS tool is designed to allow teachers to quickly and automatically align any student to the specific curriculum content. Pre-tests help pinpoint individual or class deficiencies and automatically prepares a lesson to address those needs. Post-tests in the A+LS program measure and record student academic gains. Each test question in the program is associated with a specific learning objective.

  54. 54. techplan2000 Assistance from the Technology Literacy Challenge Grant would enable our district to implement the technology portion of the Smart Start initiative at the elementary level. Approximate cost for each student workstation is $875.00 and the server is approximately $3250.00. The total cost including one teacher station, twenty-five student workstations, one server, and one HP Laser Printer is $27,500.00. Grant for Special Education Department Lake Hamilton School District is a public school district that serves children grades K &endash; 12. It was established in 1945. Lake Hamilton began as a small country school outside of Hot Springs, Arkansas with a student enrollment of 537. In the years since it was opened, Lake Hamilton School District has grown tremendously and is continuing to grow every year. The current enrollment is 3850 students. Two buildings are being added in the next year in order to accommodate the increasing number of students and staff members. The population of special needs students is increasing every year. The current enrollment in grades 8-12 is 162 students. As a whole, the special needs department of the LHSD is in need of improved integration of technology into the curriculum. This is due to funding and availability of computers. Also, as a result of the disabilities of the students, a very structured and segregated environment is necessary for them to stay on task and remain focused. Our vision at Lake Hamilton School District is "Hand in hand, we build success." Teachers, students, parents, administrators, and community leaders work as a team in order to ensure the success of all students. Lake Hamilton High School's mission is to serve as a bridge into adulthood by enabling the learner to acquire knowledge and life skills that produce a contributing citizen of tomorrow. The LHSD Technology Mission is to provide all students and staff with equity and access to technology so that they may function in a technological society. Our proposed project will benefit special needs students by integrating current technology with the curriculum in a manner that will best suit the students and teachers. Moving the students to a lab situation has proven to create increased occurrences of behavior problems. We hope to be able to create a classroom lab. In order to do this, we hope to receive grant funding for three (2) classroom sets of ten (9) laptops and accessories for wireless connection for special needs students in grades 8 &endash; 12.
