  13. 13. Summary/Conclusion Within  the  past  three  years  (2007-­‐2009),  Heritage  has  not  had  any  signi9icant  changes  in   the  Campus  STaR  Chart  results.    In  2009  a  small  increase  was  seen  in  the  area  of   Teaching  and  Learning.  In  2008  Infrastructure  for  Technology  was  reported  as  being  in   the  Advanced  Tech  area,  but  then  was  back  down  to  Developing  Tech  in  2009.  This   change  seems  to  be  in  relation  to  the  infrastructure  upgrade  and  then  the  increased   usage  and  restrictions  that  were  placed  on  the  system.    Overall,  results  show  that   Heritage  is  aligned  with  most  of  the  schools  in  the  state  of  Texas.  Even  though  this  seems   comforting,  we  still  have  a  ways  to  go  in  meeting  the  expectations  of  the  Texas  Long-­‐ Range  Plan. 13
