  6. 6. Our campus<br />
  7. 7. Strengths<br />Infrastructure for Technology is our strongest area (Advanced Tech).<br />The district is improving and getting the teachers the technology they need for the infrastructure. <br />The district is giving us the technical support that we are needing. <br />The district is making sure that there is internet access in all rooms. <br />The district is working to make sure the network is working.<br />
  8. 8. Weaknesses<br />The weakest area is Educator Preparation and Development(Developing Tech).<br />We are not giving teachers enough staff development over technology. <br />Teachers use technology all the time, but they do not know how to integrate it into their curriculum and instruction. <br />We are not having anyone model lessons in technology to the level that would be able to go their day to day teaching. <br />Our teachers can do the basics, but their understanding stops there. They need to be given more opportunities to dig deeper. <br />
  9. 9. State<br />
  10. 10. Summary<br />We are in the advanced stage in all areas but one.<br />We are ahead of most of the districts in the state. The state is in the developing stage in all the areas.<br />We have areas to work on, but overall we are on track.<br />
