  2. 2. The principal plays a vital role in making sure that the organizational chart is implemented and monitored at the campus level. A needs assessment must be conducted at the campus level and the principal must be very familiar with that data in order to provide campus staff with appropriate professional development. The support of the principal in the implementation, integration, and funding of technology is necessary to meeting the educational needs of our students. Description of Roles Board of Trustees – The Board has final authorization for all district technology expenditures. Superintendent – The Superintendent is hired by the Board of Trustees to implement board policies and make recommendations concerning funding for technology software and equipment. Assistant Superintendent for Curriculum and Instruction – The Assistant Superintendent for Curriculum and Instruction meets with principals and gathers information to advise the Superintendent in matters concerning curriculum, instruction, and the integration of technology. Coordinator for Instructional Technology – The coordinator conducts a yearly needs assessment for the district and campuses in the area of technology. He also works with district curriculum coordinators to align district and campus staff development as well as provides staff development on use of district technology resources for curriculum integration. Campus Principals – The Campus principal must analyze the STaR Chart data to evaluate the ability of staff to incorporate technology usage into classroom instruction. He must also provide staff development opportunities on the use of district technology resources as well as incentives to encourage staff to participate in the staff development program. Campus Academic Strategist – The academic strategist should assist with the development of a campus list of technology users to support classroom efforts by serving as coaches, mentors and/or model teachers in technology integration.
  3. 3. They also provide resources for teachers to create personal websites to communicate with parents and students. Campus Technician – The campus technician provides assistance to teachers for all technology concerns. They are available for technical problems as well as to assist teachers with the implementation and integration of technology into their classrooms. Teachers - Teachers should attend technology based staff development sessions in order to successfully utilize and integrate technology into their classrooms. Week 4 Assignment, Part 2: Professional Development Planning According to our previous year’s STaR chart data, our area of weakness is in the area of Educator Preparation and Development. For this reason, I designed this Action Plan in three phases. Before we can change, we must first know our level of proficiency; therefore we start by analyzing our data. This is followed by getting to know the resources that we have available for use in our classrooms. This includes how they work and what we can do with them. The final phase will be to have our teachers learn from each other. Teachers who are already integrating technology in their classrooms with provide their colleagues with strategies and ideas for ways to enhance their lessons through the use of technology.
