Technology millage district_needs_2013_-_final_draft

  1. 1. Local District Technology & Security Needs Met by February 25, 2014, Enhancement Millage Educators in Muskegon County recognize that today’s 21st Century students must have strong technology skills in order to compete in our world-wide economy. Based on a consistent funding stream provided by a proposed enhancement millage, all eleven districts have developed specific plans to expand the use of technology in their classrooms and improve security. Overall, this list reflects the need for more personal learning devices (or one-to-one devices), expanded training for teachers, and improved technical support. Fruitport Community Schools will increase and improve security cameras, offer a one-to-one computing environment for students, update the wireless network needed to support this environment, create and maintain computer replacement cycles, and provide on-going professional development for staff. Holton Public Schools will improve security systems, provide smart cart technology, improve technology access through wireless infrastructure and selected one-to-one environments; maintain a hardware replacement cycle for classrooms, labs, and infrastructure; and heighten technician services and on-going professional development for staff. Mona Shores Public Schools will expand safety and security systems, enhance and extend technology for classrooms, increase access to technology (digital devices) for students and staff, expand network infrastructure to support devices, establish a replacement cycle to upgrade hardware, provide ongoing and enhanced training for staff, improve systems for assessment, curriculum, instruction, and data collection/ analysis/reporting, and add network bandwidth. Montague Public Schools will improve building security systems; provide greater technology access for all students through enhanced wireless infrastructure and selected one-to-one environments; maintain and replace aging technology as needed: computers, audio visual equipment, and network infrastructure; improve systems for student assessment, data collection and analysis, and remediation; and better support technology repair and professional development. Muskegon Public Schools will increase building security and the number of security cameras throughout the district; provide greater technology access for students and staff; provide on-going and enhanced training for staff; improve wireless and wired networks to support additional devices; and maintain a replacement cycle for classroom technologies, computer labs and laptop carts. www.technology4students.org North Muskegon Public Schools will develop technology supported learning environments; purchase equipment and software that improve effectiveness and efficiency; engage in new technologically-based educational opportunities, provide technology support and expertise; and replace technology on a cyclical schedule. Oakridge Public Schools will expand security systems; enhance/extend technology for classrooms; increase access to technology (digital devices) for students and staff; improve systems for assessment, curriculum, instruction, and data collection/analysis/ reporting; provide ongoing and enhanced training for staff; establish a replacement cycle to upgrade hardware; replace the phone system with cost-effective VOIP; and add network bandwidth. Orchard View Schools will increase levels of security to include added and upgraded cameras and two way radios, badge access, and secured visitor entry systems; replace teacher smart cart technology and upgrade projectors with LCD technology; upgrade wireless capabilities, student labs, and mobile carts for on-line assessments; upgrade and replace technology hardware and software on a cyclical schedule; and heighten technician services and training. Ravenna Public Schools will improve current security enhancements in all buildings; address the needs of the replacement schedule for the one-to-one initiative; ensure students have needed technology, and staff have required training to meet new online learning requirements; maintain and upgrade software and licensing agreements; and provide on-going and enhanced technology training for staff. Reeths-Puffer Schools will expand and improve security systems; support, enhance, and extend the lifespan of classroom technology; purchase portable learning devices (iPads, Chromebooks, laptops, etc.); provide on-going and enhanced technology training for staff; and add further upgrades to the wireless network to support one-to-one initiatives. Whitehall District Schools will improve security and communication systems, further develop targeted one-to-one initiatives and learning zones, enhance technology integration and support, expand STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) related initiatives, and boost technology infrastructure to meet district-wide needs.
