The New York State Education Department (NYSED) requires all public school districts in the state to submit Instructional Technology Plans, as outlined in Part 100.12 of the commissioner's regulations.
The purpose of these plans is to:
Support the current and future use of educational technology in districts statewide
Prepare districts for funding opportunities
Eliminate redundant data collection initiatives
Districts that include investments in high-speed broadband or wireless connectivity, learning technology equipment, or facilities as part of their Smart Schools Investment Plan must have a submitted and approved Instructional Technology Plan on file with NYSED. Their Smart Schools Investment Plan must also be consistent with their Instructional Technology Plan.
Instructional Plan Development
Districts in the SCRIC region are invited to participate in the District Instructional Technology Planning sessions. A collaborative initiative between SCRIC, BT BOCES, DCMO BOCES, and ONC BOCES, each session is designed to help support the development and completion of individual district plans.
