  3. 3. What is the Campus STaR Chart?<br />The Texas Campus STaR Chart Will Help Campuses and Districts Answer Critical Questions:<br />1) What are your campus’ and district’s current educational technology profiles?<br />2) What evidence can be provided to demonstrate their progress is meeting the goals of the Long Range Plan for<br /> Technology?<br />3) What areas should your campus and district focus on to improve the level of technology integration to ensure the<br /> best possible teaching and learning for all students?<br />
  4. 4. The Texas Campus STaR Chart Can Be Used:<br />To create and/or update the district’s technology plan.<br />By the campus and district to document progress toward meeting No Child Left Behind, Title II, Part D<br />requirements for technology literacy for students and teachers as well as technology integration across the<br />curriculum. Our state's definition of technology literate is proficiency in the Technology Applications TEKS for<br /> students and the SBEC Technology Applications Standards for teachers.<br />To apply for grants. The Texas Campus STaR Chart will help schools identify their educational technology needs<br /> as they apply for grants.<br />To track progress on use of No Child Left Behind Title II, Part D formula and discretionary funds.<br />

  11. 11. SPMS: At A Glance<br />
  12. 12. Summary<br />The STaR Chart shows our greatest strengths as Internet Connectivity and Local Area Network Wide Area Network. The STaR Chart shows our greatest weakness as TA TEKS Implementation, Leadership and Vision and Budget. When we have the technology on campus and the district has encouraged the schools to use it, our campus is the only one falling behind because leadership does not want to utilize the technology. The TA TEKS are not implemented on a regular basis. Educator Preparation and Development would be a good option. The reason is there has been movement in this area but it has been small movement. The STaR Chart scores show improvement but the numbers show a need for concern and attention.<br />
