ADMINISTRATIVEPolicybehavioralxStudents sign AUP at the beginning of each school year. Teachers do not check before taking students to the computer lab to see if all students have turned in their signed AUP. New school Google accounts require an AUP. Students do not receive account information until the AUP is turned in. The entire campus is wireless, but there is no use agreement in place for the wireless network.
6
resource/infrastructurexFormal policy exists, but no mention of the AUP or board policy exists in the site technology plan. It is mentioned in the student handbook and teachers distribute it the first day of school and remind students to turn it in.
7
PlanningbehavioralxNo formal plans exist. A technology team is in place, but only discusses immediate needs and all planning is budget driven.
8
resource/infrastructurexInformal plan.
9
BudgetbehavioralxNo policy exists. Decisions are made based on immediate needs. Some future planning, but no true heirarchy of needs.
10
resource/infrastructurexNo specific budget for technology. Departments are asked to research wants and needs and submit requests. There is a list of potential replacement needs, as well as a general wish list. Planning is not linked to curricular plans.
11
Administrative InformationbehavioralxInformation about administrative systems is not stated in the plan but most district-wide communication is accomplished through network or web-based systems: email, discipline reports, budgets, payroll, online gradebook.
