The Texas STaR Chart is designed to help campuses determine their progress toward meeting both Long-Range Plan and district goals.
It is a technology data-gathering tool provided by the state.
We will look at the STaR Chart Data for our campus.
What is district’s current educational technology profile?
What evidence can be provided to demonstrate the district’s progress in meeting the goals of the Long Range Plan for Technology?
What areas should the district focus on to improve its level of technology integration to ensure the best possible teaching & learning?
