June Board Meeting

May 27th, 2017

 

In the last 30 days we have had ninety help desk tickets opened, and we have closed ninety-three. We still have eleven tickets remaining. The tickets do not include all the student walk ins that happen during the day, or other staff walk ins that may happen. The average ticket time, from open to close is a little over half a day.

 

We have now started the end of the year assessment, including NWEA. These assessments will go until about June 14th. We will not be doing any laptop collection for the students until the 14th as to ensure that the students have their laptops for testing.

This year we need to have a new Technology Plan approved by the State. This year is the first year for a new format for the Technology Plan. Part of the plan is creating a vision, or having a process for creating a vision. With all going on this year for staff, we will be outlining a process that we will complete this summer for creating the vision. Other parts of the Technology Plan uses data from a survey that the State requires that we have staff and students fill out each year. All of the administrators have had a chance to give input on the final plan. The last step is now for the Tech Plan to be approved by the School Board of Directors.

 

With the budget approved for new computers for next year, we are now evaluating our options for next year, keeping in mind the budget, and the needs of the teachers and students. Information is still coming in however we hope to have a finalize plan to give to the State .

 

Things are going well this year, and part of this is due to the excellent technology staff we have this year, and part is also due to the efforts of the rest of the staff who have been embracing new ideas and trying new techniques in the classroom using the technology that we provide to them, while also looking to the future.
