SUBJECT

Division Technology Plan for 2018-2023

RATIONALE

During the November 19, 2018 board meeting, the division’s Technology Plan for 2018-2023 was presented as information to the board.

 

This month, presented for the board’s action, the plan explains the vision and goal framework by which ACPS will continue to build upon the successes of the one-to-one initiative and the SAMR professional development program.

 

In addition, the document provides information that is relative to the division’s plan to link the new computer science SOLs with all subject areas.

 

Furthermore, the plan contains information that is specific to our focus on the twelve digital literacy skills that all students need for academic success.

 

Lastly, our plan, as directed by the Virginia Department of Education,focuses heavily on “The Five C’s” and describes those goals that are specific to critical thinking, creative thinking, communication, collaboration, and citizenship.

 

By adopting the goals and recommendations that are set forth in the 2017 National Education Plan update as well the goals that are described within the Commonwealth’s technology plan, the school division’s plan is certain to be aligned with the VA DOE’s new Profile of a Virginia Graduate.
