What is the Texas STaR Chart? School Technology and Readiness Chart A Teacher Tool for Planning and Self-Assessing alignment with the Long-Range Plan for Technology, 2006-2020. The STaR chart consists of four sections: Teaching & Learning, Educator Preparation & Development, Leadership, Administration, & Instructional Support, and Infrastructure for Technology
What is the Long-Range Technology Plan for 2006-2020.
