Why a STaR Chart
Campus Statistics Statewide Annual Summary2009-2010 Level of Progress
The Texas Teacher STaR Chart has been developed around the four key areas of the Long-Range Plan for Technology, 2006-2020
The Texas Teacher STaR Chart is designed to help teachers, campuses, and districts determine their progress toward meeting the goals of their district as well.
WHY THE STAR CHART?
The Teacher STaR Chart survey enables teachers to see what the expectations for Technology and Instruction are for all Texas teachers.
WHY THE STAR CHART? CONTINUED
Assists teachers in determining professional development needs based on a current educational technology profile.
Determines funding priorities based on teacher and classroom needs.
Provide data that can support the need for grants or other resources.
Help conceptualize the campus or district vision of technology.
Assist campuses in documenting the use of No Child Left Behind, Title II, Part D formula and discretionary funds.
