  • 5. Lets focus on Educator Preparation
    • Educator Preparation is just one of the key areas of the summary. It measures how well a school is integrating technology into their curriculum. It also measures how many educators meet SBEC standards.
  • 6. So what does the summary say?
    • The summary shows that 74.2% of schools across the state fall into the developing tech category in educator preparation. This means that only 40% of educators meet the SBEC standards.
  • 7. So how did our school measure up?
    • Nebbie Williams fell into the category of Advanced Tech for Educator Preparation for the 2007-2008 school year.
    • This means that 60% of our teachers meet the SBEC standards.
    • It also means that the use of technology is expected in our classrooms!
  • 8. In Summary
    • We still need to strive towards becoming a Target Tech school where 100% of our educators meet SBEC standards.
    • Teacher collaboration will be key to this happening in addition to training. We can do it.
