Executive Summary

Roscoe ISD will provide leading and exemplary technology to students and staff while also being fiscally responsible. Technology is a valuable tool that will be used to enhance the learning and teaching opportunities at Roscoe ISD. This plan outlines four goals of Roscoe ISD and how these goals will be implemented. The goals and objectives were taken directly from the Texas STaR chart and STaR chart results for Roscoe ISD.

Needs Assessment

Assessment Process:
100% of Roscoe ISD teachers have completed the STaR Chart. The data compiled from the STaR Chart has been used to determine Goals and Objectives for this plan. Meetings with a Technology Task Force from each campus has provided the insight for activities to meet the goals and objectives. The technology director has aggregated all of the information from the STaR Charts and Technology Tasks Forces into this plan.

Existing Conditions:
Currently every classroom has high-speed Internet. Our Internet speed for High School and Intermediate is 250 megabits. Elementary and Junior High are restricted to 250 megabit due to a 250 megabit wireless backbone.

The teacher to computer ratio is 1-1 with most teacher computers being less than 3 years old. Most teachers have access to projectors, laptops, and whiteboards.

The student to computer ratio in the secondary is 1-1. In the elementary we are at 3-1 ratio. Most of the computers are less than 3 years old. Thin client technologies are being implemented to expand the number of computing devices while keeping costs down.

Technology Needs:
Teaching and Learning - As a whole, the district is a Developing Tech District. Students need more access to technologies. Teachers need more training in existing technologies as well as exposure to more options. Web based teaching opportunities need to be expanded both for teachers and students.

Educator Preparation and Development - As a whole, the district is a Developing Tech District. More training on how to integrate technology into the classrooms and well as more technology to be integrated is needed.

Leadership, Administration and Instructional Support - While the scores were better in this area, the district still fell into the Developing Tech area. Teachers are requiring more planning and support for their technology needs before we will be able to move to the next level.

Infrastructure for Technology - Again, as a whole, the district fell into the Developing Tech range. Teachers are wanting more technology in their classrooms. Infrastructure needs to be improved to limit redundancy of services and move funds into the classroom.

Goals, Objectives, and Strategies

GOAL 1: Teaching and Learning-Utilize technology as a tool to foster improvement in academic achievement, curriculum integration, and increased accessibility and innovation.
OBJECTIVE 1.1:
Technology will be available for all students to choose the best tools to analyze and synthesize data to make informed decision, communicate knowledge and understanding of content, and share results with peers and others outside of the classroom.
