About this Service

There are several key attributes found in districts with a successful technology programs.  These districts can be found to have;

  1. an up to date, effective instructional technology plan that provides a variety of channels for involvement by various stakeholder groups (students, teachers, community/parents, administration, support staff, and adhoc subject matter experts),
  2. two or more people responsible for the design, implementation and evaluation of the plan, no longer a one person job (see the job skill rubric from COSN linked below).
  3. a professional development plan that is an integral part of the district Professional Development Plan (PDP) and allows for the participation and feedback by stakeholders in the design, implementation, and evaluation of the plan,

The New York State Education Department requires districts to demonstrate that they have a current (three year) plan in place (Regulation 100.12) for eligibility in aid and grants funding with a survey tool requirement annually to ensure accountability to the plan.

Staffing a technology department can be difficult when looking for talent and funding.  The LHRIC has flexible options available to assist districts form a strategic approach to technology planning and coordination (Regulation 100.12).

  • Shared staff with a certified professional who can provide supplemental assistance to district leadership in the design, implementation, maintenance, and evaluation of the Instructional Technology Plan.
  • Review of ITP Survey in NYSED Portal for completeness.
  • Full Instructional Tech Plan Committee Facilitation & Coordination.
