  8. 8. Where do we currently fall? (2009/2010 data) Key Area Average Rating across subcategories Key Area Total Classification Teaching and Learning 2.3 14 Developing Tech Educator Preparation and Development 1.8 11 Developing Tech Leadership, Administration and Instructional Support 2.1 13 Developing Tech Infrastructure for Techonolgy 2.8 17 Developing Tech
