  6. 6. Why is the texas star chart important to me?<br />The Texas Campus STaR Chart is a tool designed for use in technology planning, budgeting for resources, and evaluation<br /> of progress in local technology projects. <br />All applications for state funded technology grants require a completed campus or district Texas STaR Chart profile to be filed with the application as an indicator of current status and progress and as a formative and/or summative evaluation tool.<br />The online assessment may be used as a basis for dialogue with staff, administrators, technology directors, school board members and community leaders to plan for future growth. <br />Statewide reports are used to report on progress toward fulfilling the requirements in No Child Left Behind, Title II, Part D that all teachers should be technology literate and integrate technology across the curriculum. <br />The legislation also requires that all students should be technology literate by the time they leave the eighth grade.<br />
  7. 7. How does the district use this information?<br />The Texas Public STaR Chart is an online tool to allow all stakeholders to view the technology readiness of all campuses across the state. The search features enable a variety of reports such as all campuses that are Early or Target Tech in one or more focus areas. <br />Reports may be organized by district, ESC region, legislative district, or campus type. Data is currently available from the Texas Campus STaR Charts completed in 2004, 2005 and 2006. The public site is available at<br />http://www.tea.state.tx.us/starchart/search. - <br />
