I. Vision for Technology Use Compose an overall mission and/or vision which describes the steps the LEA is taking to ensure all students/teachers have increased access to technology. Include a list of specific vision statements for system educational improvement over a three year period. It is the mission of the Clayton County Public Schools’ Department of Technology to provide flexible and responsive direction for access to information systems, instructional technology, and technology services to enhance student achievement for all students. Over the next three years, the Technology Department plans to increase support services that deliver on time, on budget, and with quality services that support student academic success for all students. The vision of Clayton County Public Schools’ Department of Technology is to become a recognized model school district both in the state of Georgia and nationally for the access and utilization of innovative technology and cutting edge strategies to ensure that students are prepared to compete globally. Our vision, which was developed by key stakeholders including teachers, principals, senior leadership, business partners, and parents addresses the district’s Balanced Scorecard/ Strategic Action Plan (SAP) goals and objectives (Appendix: CCPS Balanced Scorecard/Strategic Action Plan) as well as aligning with state and national standards. Implementation of the vision is as follows: 

All teachers and students will be proficient in identifying and effectively using 21st century skills, tools, methodologies, and standards.

Administrators, teachers, media specialists, and central office curriculum staff will use technology resources to access data systems needed to improve and personalize instructional delivery for all students.

All administrators will be empowered to observe, monitor, and recognize effective and impactful classroom instructional technology use by teachers and students.

Central office and administrative staff will utilize appropriate technology tools to connect with teachers, parents, students, and community.

Parents will receive timely and up-to-date information about their child, the district’s goals and initiatives, and general news through interactive online resources, such as teacher web pages, video and audio presentations, podcasts, and a parent portal.

Teachers will have access to rigorous professional development workshops, activities, courses, and plans, which target successful classroom integration of digital content, 21st century skills, tools, methodologies, resources, and learning assets.

Media Specialists will have access to an ongoing, interactive learning community and network to increase their skills and knowledge base as they serve as Technology Contacts for each school in the district.

Successful instructional technology integration requires the cooperation and input from the entire district. For that reason, Clayton County Public Schools has a commitment to continue providing a forum for key stakeholders to make the technology implementation plan a success. The district curriculum framework, Georgia Performance Standards, National Educational Technology Standards, and Framework for 21st Century Skills all contribute to drive the direction of the pedagogical strategies and professional learning opportunities for successful technology use in Clayton County Schools.

II. Current Reality Identify your data sources. What data does your technology inventory survey tell you? Compose a narrative analyzing the gap in access to technology across the district. Address the following groups—instructional, administrative, parent/community, system readiness/system support—personnel/resources.

Data Sources Clayton County Public Schools uses the following data sources for technology planning and implementation: 1. State Technology Inventory 2. 8th Grade Technology Literacy Assessment 3. Training Surveys for 21st Century Digital Classroom Professional Learning 4. Locally Developed Pre and Post Teacher Technology Integration Assessment Tool 5. Instructional Technology Surveys a.

Overall Access to Technology The Technology Department maintains a detailed database of computer and peripheral equipment by school location and external centralized sites. Data such as serial numbers, parts and model numbers, age and life cycle status of the equipment are maintained by technicians and stored centrally for quick query access and for reporting. Access to technology in Clayton County Schools has progressively increased over the past five years.

Instructional Access An analysis of data from the state technology inventory report regarding local school technology reveals excellent access to technology for students, teachers, and administrators. Each certified teacher receives an HP laptop and all 3,215 instructional classrooms are equipped with 21st century digital classroom equipment, including but not limited to the following:           

Interactive whiteboard or mobile handheld school pad unit Ceiling-mounted DLP digital projector integrated with TV Tuner, DVD/VHS combo Mounted universal sound system Student Response Clickers (at least one kit per grade level, with many schools purchasing additional units) Document Cameras (at least 5-10 per school) Networked printer At least one computer lab with 28 workstations One multi-purpose instructional lab and several CTAE computer labs in each high school Networked desktop computers (two or more, depending on the school and/or classroom; i.e. Read 180, Remediation, and Foreign Languages classes) One to ten mobile wireless laptop carts per school Digital content (software for interactive whiteboard, RM Easiteach, RM Math Frameworks, Thinkfinity, Turning Technologies, and locally developed lessons)

Clayton County Public Schools | 2009-2012

Software and Digital Content RM Easiteach is a software application purchased to provide GPS-aligned technology resources for the core content areas. This software is installed on the county-issued laptops of all kindergarten through twelfth grade teachers. In the middle and high schools, RM Easiteach Math Frameworks is also loaded on teacher laptops to target math achievement in secondary schools. Another important resource used in Clayton County for digital content is Thinkfinity—a free, state partnered resource funded by Verizon Foundation. The Thinkfinity training implementation is currently scheduled for the 2009-2010 school year. The charts below summarize the district’s overall instructional and administrative access to technology, including System Readiness and Support as well as Personnel Resources. Below is a snapshot illustrating current instructional access within the Clayton County School system. This data is taken from the February 2009 State Technology Inventory Report.

Administrative Access In addition to the instructional hardware and software listed above, results from our internal database reports illustrate adequate access to technology resources for administrative functions. Most administrative applications use a central database to insure single point of data entry. This approach improves data accuracy and user efficiency. The student information system, work order request forms, travel reporting, financial accounting, employee payroll reporting tool, and many other central operations are all supported by this centralized database tool developed in the AS400 application. Administrators at all sites have access to either a desktop or laptop computer with docking station and a networked printer. In order to support remote needs for access, VPN and broadband mobile cards are provided as needed. The Department of Technology issues Blackberry devices to designated schoolbased administrative staff and central office personnel. The Professional Learning Department houses video conferencing and distance learning equipment for remote meetings, classes, or activities. Our network and communications infrastructure enable the school system to provide exceptional bandwidth and reliability to all users. The current network consists of a fiber optic infrastructure to all of our schools and administrative locations. All remote locations are provided with full-duplex 100 Mbps connections with a Committed Information Rate (CIR) of 20 Mbps. The locations are connected to the data center by three full-duplex 1 Gbps connections with a CIR of 250 Mbps. A wireless LAN is implemented within each school and administrative location providing 100Mbps to the workstation and a 1 Gbps network backbone. SPLOST funding is used to install an 802.11a/b/g wireless infrastructure in all of our schools and remote locations. This project should be complete by August 2010.

Parent and Community Access Currently, Clayton County parents and community members have access to data provided on the district’s central website. Parents can access online data regarding student attendance, grades, and demographic information with a unique username and password. In addition, an automated voicemail system and an automated calling system (Connect Ed) are used to disseminate information to parents and community.

Instructional Uses of Technology Technology in Clayton County Schools continues to focus on the district’s Balance Scorecard/Strategic Action Plan to support a district-wide vision. Our schools are challenged to prepare students to navigate and excel in a global society with technology as a driving force. Support is provided for student success by understanding that curriculum, instruction, assessment, and standards drive all technology decisions in our district. All of our goals and initiatives support the department of Teaching and Learning in its efforts to ensure a quality and holistic education for all students Instructional use of technology in Clayton County Schools centers around utilizing technology to support and facilitate the curriculum. Students in every curricular area at every grade level are exposed to technology as a resource and optional tool for engagement in the learning process. Teachers are encouraged to plan at least two technology-rich lesson plans per week. Currently, all teachers receive a series of overview trainings on the basic functionality of available hardware and software and they also participate in several technology integration workshops. Because most middle school teachers have had access to 21st century tools in their classrooms for two full school years, middle school students participate in lessons that incorporate the use of document cameras for math and science courses and student response clickers for general formative assessment in all content areas. Additionally, most middle school teachers are comfortable providing instruction with the interactive mobile school pad units. Technology observation data results reveal that most teachers still use technology to employ teacher-led instruction strategies. Only half of the elementary schools and the 9th Grade Academies received digital classroom equipment this past year and their instructional use of technology is slowly developing as we continue to roll out training to these locations. In the spring of 2009, the remaining elementary schools and 10th-12th grade classrooms received their allotted technology equipment and are currently participating in training sessions.

Instructional Gap Analysis Although teachers in Clayton County Schools are empowered with 21st century digital equipment in every instructional classroom, there is a profound need for a more rigorous training model to provide teachers with pedagogical strategies to meet the needs of students by:    

fostering 21st century learning skills, promoting critical thinking skills, encouraging higher-order thinking strategies, and cultivating a standards-based learning environment where technology allows students to explore higher levels of Bloom’s Taxonomy.

Currently, we track the number of instructional staff members who attend technology courses offered by Professional Learning. There is also a tool to survey participants on the effectiveness of the training experience; however, there is a lack of critical quantitative and qualitative data to address positive or negative impact on instructional practices and student achievement. Furthermore, there is a need to develop a process for monitoring and following up with participants who attend instructional technology workshops, courses, and activities. Other system instructional needs include:    

Replacement of teacher laptops by 2012. Implementation of a systemic strategic planning process for instructional hardware and software purchases. Process to streamline the 422 software applications currently supported by the Instructional Technology staff. Plan for increasing instructional technology support personnel to provide school-based support.

Administrative Uses of Technology Operational uses of technology include using hardware and software resources for:     

payroll management benefits management and enrollment human resource management financial accounting and purchasing facility work order management

Clayton County Public Schools | 2009-2012

  

transportation and bus routing food service point of sale professional learning course maintenance

School-based administrative uses of technology include using hardware and software resources for:     

library management student field trip information gradebook, attendance, and discipline data maintenance substitute teacher management student information recording

Locally developed, the student information system runs on the AS400 iSeries. The SmartWeb Technologies Classroom Management System interfaces with the AS400 system and allows teachers to maintain student attendance and grades. Additionally, the Technology Department uses a web filtering tool to manage internet traffic for all locations. Firewalls and endpoint protection are used to secure the network. An email archiving solution is maintained for all users.

Administrative Gap Analysis Although all administrative computers are equipped with the Microsoft Office Suite, the technology department is working on upgrading every user to Microsoft Office 2007 in year 2 and 3 of the technology plan. In addition, several technology projects are in progress to upgrade the infrastructure and backbone of the district’s technology resources. To date, Clayton County has configured an AS400 system to host most of the administrative functions in the district, such as Professional Learning courses, payroll, benefits, and Human Resources information. In 2007 the district purchased SunGuard to replace the functions in AS400 for the financial, payroll, human resources, and technology work order systems. Currently, training is being provided to designated central office staff on the SunGuard application to increase user efficiency and data reliability. According to the current implementation schedule the full roll out of SunGuard is expected to complete in January 2010.

Additional administrative technology needs include:    

Need for centralized data warehouse or data mart tool Need to increase the web development team competencies for increased role of web interface. Need for disaster recovery location and process. Need for enterprise solution to address heavy paper-based processes.

Parent and Community Uses of Technology Parents and community members use technology by interfacing with the district through email, websites (both central and local schools), newsletters, and a cable television show.

Parent and Community Gap Analysis Although Clayton County’s award winning website provides very timely, up-to-date information to parents and community members, feedback from an informal focus group revealed the need for a more interactive web portal for all stakeholders. Currently critical data is housed in several separate databases or external applications. All are accessed by key stakeholders with different user names, URLs, and oftentimes will not work outside of the school’s network. Another challenge is the lack of data to determine parent and community use of available technology resources; for example, determine how many households watch the local cable television programming or survey of parent and community members on the effectiveness of our current communication strategies.

System Readiness and Support The following system support strategies are currently in place:     

Security and web content filtering are on all machines and updated regularly. Strong network and communications infrastructure in place. Two administrative sites have wireless capabilities. Email archiving solution provided for all users. Server virtualization is in place to maintain centralized management of school and administrative servers.

Clayton County Public Schools | 2009-2012

11


Although the above list represents a strong focus on system readiness and support, there is a need for a disaster recovery process and external location for data backup.

Personnel Resources A major challenge of integrating the tremendous amount of digital equipment and content has been limited personnel allocations to support training and technical troubleshooting. In comparison to many neighboring districts, Clayton County Schools has a very small staff of technicians, trainers, and support personnel who maintain a high level of quality support to all schools and remote sites. An internal desk audit and job analysis was conducted in the spring of 2009 with results currently pending.

The Department of Technology will support these efforts by promoting the use of email, our district website, school and community newsletters, and the cable television show (CCS Today and Student Technology Show) to share system progress and encourage stakeholder involvement. Other specific strategies are: 1. Enhance our web presence by developing an interactive web portal for students, teachers, parents, and community members that highlights system successes and best practices 2. Support the use of Connect Ed as the internal one-to-many messenger system 3. Establish showcase forum for teacher and student success: a. Power Up 4Learning (Student Technology Showcase) b. Power Up 4Learning (Teacher Showcase) 3. Support a student-produced technology television show

IV. Professional Development Describe how the local educational agency will provide professional development and ensure that specific funds like E‐Rate and other sources are spent on scientifically and/or evidence based practices in relation to the purchase of technology and technology tools. Clayton County Public Schools plans to provide a rigorous, high-quality, and research-based professional development program that prepares and supports educators in the effective integration of technology into the standards-based classroom by aligning all instructional technology courses to local, state, and national standards. In the previous technology plan, the professional development technology focus was to “provide courses that were categorized into certification, managerial, skills, and instructional integration” (2006). In an effort to progressively prepare educators and learners for the for the 21st century classroom, the instructional technology professional development program will focus on courses and workshops that:
