The principal is the link that ties the district Technology Plan goals and the Campus Technology
Plan goals. It is of upmost importance that the principal be a role model for all stakeholders,
especially campus students and staff by using technology for daily operations, communication,
data gathering, analyzing, identifying trends, teaching, and learning. It is the principal’s role to
collaborate with the Curriculum and Instructional Technology Specialists to assess campus
professional development needs and develop a plan that aligns with district and campus goals.
S/he must also work with the Campus Instructional Technologists to implement professional
development and ensure ongoing daily technology support is provided to teachers in the
delivery of instruction. The principal monitors and assesses mastery of the content area and TA
TEKS. As support for the teachers, the principal is also responsible for seeking and allocating
funds for classroom technology needs. Lastly, the principal is responsible to ensure all students
and staff members adhere to the district Acceptable Use Policy, copyright guidelines, and
practice safe and ethical Internet use.


Professional Development Planning
Professional development for teachers as well as administrators is needed in our district. The
last three years of the STaR Chart indicated that we are at a developing level for both the area
of teaching and learning and the area of educator preparation and development.
The data indicates that these two areas go hand in hand. I strongly believe that if we focus on
how we can provide effective professional development for teachers, the area of teaching and
learning will naturally improve as well. It would be beneficial for our district leaders and campus
principals to participate in an online learning community on how to improve the area of Teaching
and Learning. Discussing this area with an online learning community would be beneficial in that
educators from various school districts can share what they have implemented to assist them in
their quest for technology integration improvement. Leaders can then learn from each other to
implement a professional development plan that can improve their own confidence as well as
teacher and student use of technology at their campus.
Based on my review of the district Technology Plan, Campus Improvement Plan, and personal
experience with the current technology professional development, I have several professional
development activities to recommend. As stated in the Week 3 report I submitted, the district
technology plan’s first three goals focus on instruction. The first goal of the Judson ISD
2010-2013 Technology Plan states, “Ensure that all students and staff pursue mastery of clearly
defined technology skills for use in foundations, information acquisition, problem solving, and
communication.” To ensure that this goal is accomplished, the district strongly encouraged
teachers to attend proficiency training delivered by the CITs. This training focused on the
teacher SBEC standards. About 90% of teachers in the district have achieved mastery of these

Page 4 – Revised October 2009
standards. I suggest that the principals collaborate with the Campus Instructional Technologies
to schedule and provide training and testing sessions for any educators on campus who have
not achieved mastery of these standards. The part of this goal that is in dire need of
improvement is that the students demonstrate mastery of the Technology Applications TEKS. At
the end of the school year, the district currently administers an end of year assessment to all 8th
grade students on the TA TEKS. Last year we had a 21% passing rate for all 8th graders in the
district. I recommend that all K-8 teachers and principals participate in a professional
development session in which they review the TA TEKS for the three grade level clusters (K-2
3-5, 6-8), take the 8th grade assessment to become familiar with the content, rigor, and format of
the assessment, and collaborate with their grade level team, curriculum specialists, instructional
technology specialist, and Campus Instructional Technologists to develop a campus plan to
integrate the TA TEKS into daily instruction.
The district’s second goal states, “Incorporate technology into teaching and learning in all
curriculum areas to enable students to effectively build content knowledge.” The district AEIS
report indicates that math, specifically problem solving, is the weakest skill for our students
across the district. I recommend that the district Curriculum Specialists and Instructional
Technology Specialists research strategies and lessons that integrate problem solving and
technology. The Campus Instructional Technologists will assist in writing lessons and then
providing ongoing professional development for teachers at the campus level. This professional
development would consist of training of the new technologies, modeling and co-teaching the
lessons, and providing just-in-time educational and technical support. This ongoing support
would also assist in fulfilling the district’s third goal:“Enhance learning and student achievement
by using technology tools to deliver instruction.”
Lastly, but most importantly, it is vital that principals participate in all of these professional
development activities with their teachers. As mentioned in the round table interviews with Dr.
Abernathy, Dr. Jenkins, and Cindy Cummings, leaders must model and support teachers to
learn new research based technologies. Out of all the personnel/stakeholders, the principal is
the one that has the most influence on meaningful change at their campus. The principal is what
connects district office goals and campus goals. S/he is the key to the success of the planning,
implementation, monitoring, and evaluation of the goals.


Professional Development Activities:
   •   Implement an online learning community for district leaders and campus principals to
       provide them Educator Preparation and Development in the area of technology and give
       them strategies on how to improve the area of Teaching and Learning. These are both
       areas that are in need of improvement according to STaR Chart data and trends.
   •   Schedule and provide training and testing sessions for all teachers who have not
       demonstrated proficiency on the SBEC technology standards
   •   K-8 teachers and principals will participate in a professional development session in
       which they:
           o   Review the TA TEKS for the three grade level clusters (K-2 3-5, 6-8)


Page 5 – Revised October 2009
o   Take the 8th grade assessment to become familiar with the content, rigor, and
               format of the assessment
           o   Collaborate with their grade level team, Curriculum Specialists, Instructional
               Technology Specialists, and Campus Instructional Technologists to develop a
               campus plan to integrate the TA TEKS into daily instruction (especially math).
   •   Campus principals will collaborate with district Curriculum Specialists, Instructional
       Technology Specialists to review data and plan professional development to meet
       specific campus needs in the area of curriculum and instructional technology.
   •   Campus principals will collaborate with Campus Instructional Technologists to implement
       the professional development based on specific campus needs in the area of curriculum
       and instructional technology. Principals will also collaborate with them to find ways to
       bring technology into the classroom and not be dependent on the computer lab.
       Additionally, it will be the principal’s role to investigate and promote new ways to assess
       student mastery other than using a multiple choice test. S/he can work with district office
       specialists to create rubrics to assess project based learning.
   •   Campus Instructional Technologists will provide ongoing professional development for
       teachers and principals at the campus level. This professional development would
       consist of training of the technologies needed, modeling and co-teaching the lessons,
       and providing just-in-time educational and technical support.

Evaluation Planning for Action Plan
In order to measure the success of our Technology Action Plan, we must have an evaluation
component in place. The following is a list of how we will measure success of our plan:
Evaluation Components:
   •   To evaluate the success of the online learning community for district leaders and
       campus principals in the areas of Educator Preparation and Development and Teaching
       and Learning, we will use STaR Chart data results for next school year. We will examine
       and review the trends in the data.
   •   To evaluate teachers’ proficiency on the SBEC technology standards, we have a district
       database that contains data on all professionals in the district. We will continuously
       monitor the database to ensure every teacher have achieved mastery.
   •   To ensure K-8 teachers and principals participate in the following professional
       development session, we will have sign in sheets and provide make-up sessions for
       anyone who is not able to attend the first session. To assess principal leadership in

Page 6 – Revised October 2009
promoting technology integration as well as teachers daily implementation of technology
       integration, the district leaders will conduct regular district walk-throughs at campuses.
       They will expect to observe technology integration and see student products that
       indicate project-based technology integration. Principals will also be required to conduct
       regular walk-throughs at their campus to assess technology integration.
           o   Review the TA TEKS for the three grade level clusters (K-2 3-5, 6-8)
           o   Take the 8th grade assessment to become familiar with the content, rigor, and
               format of the assessment
           o   Collaborate with their grade level team, Curriculum Specialists, Instructional
               Technology Specialists, and Campus Instructional Technologists to develop a
               campus plan to integrate the TA TEKS into daily instruction (especially math).
   •   District walk-throughs and student products will also assess whether campus principals
       have collaborated with district Curriculum Specialists, Instructional Technology
       Specialists, and Campus Instructional Technologists to review data, plan, and implement
       professional development to meet specific campus needs, find ways to bring technology
       into the classroom, and promote the creation of rubrics to assess project based learning.
   •   The quality and effectiveness of ongoing professional development led by the Campus
       Instructional Technologists will be assessed through regular staff surveys, observation of
       daily integration of technology, and student products.

   •   Overall success of the plan will be evaluated through the results of STaR Chart data,
       AEIS report (will expect increase in math scores), and Simple Assessment results
       (passing percentage of 8th grade TA TEKS proficiency should exceed the current 21%
       passing rate).

  • 4. Teach students Acceptable Use Policy • Teach students how to be safe on the Internet Students • Follow AUP policies • Follow appropriate netiquette • Master TA TEKS at their grade cluster (K-2) (3-5) or (6-8) The principal is the link that ties the district Technology Plan goals and the Campus Technology Plan goals. It is of upmost importance that the principal be a role model for all stakeholders, especially campus students and staff by using technology for daily operations, communication, data gathering, analyzing, identifying trends, teaching, and learning. It is the principal’s role to collaborate with the Curriculum and Instructional Technology Specialists to assess campus professional development needs and develop a plan that aligns with district and campus goals. S/he must also work with the Campus Instructional Technologists to implement professional development and ensure ongoing daily technology support is provided to teachers in the delivery of instruction. The principal monitors and assesses mastery of the content area and TA TEKS. As support for the teachers, the principal is also responsible for seeking and allocating funds for classroom technology needs. Lastly, the principal is responsible to ensure all students and staff members adhere to the district Acceptable Use Policy, copyright guidelines, and practice safe and ethical Internet use. Professional Development Planning Professional development for teachers as well as administrators is needed in our district. The last three years of the STaR Chart indicated that we are at a developing level for both the area of teaching and learning and the area of educator preparation and development. The data indicates that these two areas go hand in hand. I strongly believe that if we focus on how we can provide effective professional development for teachers, the area of teaching and learning will naturally improve as well. It would be beneficial for our district leaders and campus principals to participate in an online learning community on how to improve the area of Teaching and Learning. Discussing this area with an online learning community would be beneficial in that educators from various school districts can share what they have implemented to assist them in their quest for technology integration improvement. Leaders can then learn from each other to implement a professional development plan that can improve their own confidence as well as teacher and student use of technology at their campus. Based on my review of the district Technology Plan, Campus Improvement Plan, and personal experience with the current technology professional development, I have several professional development activities to recommend. As stated in the Week 3 report I submitted, the district technology plan’s first three goals focus on instruction. The first goal of the Judson ISD 2010-2013 Technology Plan states, “Ensure that all students and staff pursue mastery of clearly defined technology skills for use in foundations, information acquisition, problem solving, and communication.” To ensure that this goal is accomplished, the district strongly encouraged teachers to attend proficiency training delivered by the CITs. This training focused on the teacher SBEC standards. About 90% of teachers in the district have achieved mastery of these Page 4 – Revised October 2009
  • 5. standards. I suggest that the principals collaborate with the Campus Instructional Technologies to schedule and provide training and testing sessions for any educators on campus who have not achieved mastery of these standards. The part of this goal that is in dire need of improvement is that the students demonstrate mastery of the Technology Applications TEKS. At the end of the school year, the district currently administers an end of year assessment to all 8th grade students on the TA TEKS. Last year we had a 21% passing rate for all 8th graders in the district. I recommend that all K-8 teachers and principals participate in a professional development session in which they review the TA TEKS for the three grade level clusters (K-2 3-5, 6-8), take the 8th grade assessment to become familiar with the content, rigor, and format of the assessment, and collaborate with their grade level team, curriculum specialists, instructional technology specialist, and Campus Instructional Technologists to develop a campus plan to integrate the TA TEKS into daily instruction. The district’s second goal states, “Incorporate technology into teaching and learning in all curriculum areas to enable students to effectively build content knowledge.” The district AEIS report indicates that math, specifically problem solving, is the weakest skill for our students across the district. I recommend that the district Curriculum Specialists and Instructional Technology Specialists research strategies and lessons that integrate problem solving and technology. The Campus Instructional Technologists will assist in writing lessons and then providing ongoing professional development for teachers at the campus level. This professional development would consist of training of the new technologies, modeling and co-teaching the lessons, and providing just-in-time educational and technical support. This ongoing support would also assist in fulfilling the district’s third goal:“Enhance learning and student achievement by using technology tools to deliver instruction.” Lastly, but most importantly, it is vital that principals participate in all of these professional development activities with their teachers. As mentioned in the round table interviews with Dr. Abernathy, Dr. Jenkins, and Cindy Cummings, leaders must model and support teachers to learn new research based technologies. Out of all the personnel/stakeholders, the principal is the one that has the most influence on meaningful change at their campus. The principal is what connects district office goals and campus goals. S/he is the key to the success of the planning, implementation, monitoring, and evaluation of the goals. Professional Development Activities: • Implement an online learning community for district leaders and campus principals to provide them Educator Preparation and Development in the area of technology and give them strategies on how to improve the area of Teaching and Learning. These are both areas that are in need of improvement according to STaR Chart data and trends. • Schedule and provide training and testing sessions for all teachers who have not demonstrated proficiency on the SBEC technology standards • K-8 teachers and principals will participate in a professional development session in which they: o Review the TA TEKS for the three grade level clusters (K-2 3-5, 6-8) Page 5 – Revised October 2009
  • 6. o Take the 8th grade assessment to become familiar with the content, rigor, and format of the assessment o Collaborate with their grade level team, Curriculum Specialists, Instructional Technology Specialists, and Campus Instructional Technologists to develop a campus plan to integrate the TA TEKS into daily instruction (especially math). • Campus principals will collaborate with district Curriculum Specialists, Instructional Technology Specialists to review data and plan professional development to meet specific campus needs in the area of curriculum and instructional technology. • Campus principals will collaborate with Campus Instructional Technologists to implement the professional development based on specific campus needs in the area of curriculum and instructional technology. Principals will also collaborate with them to find ways to bring technology into the classroom and not be dependent on the computer lab. Additionally, it will be the principal’s role to investigate and promote new ways to assess student mastery other than using a multiple choice test. S/he can work with district office specialists to create rubrics to assess project based learning. • Campus Instructional Technologists will provide ongoing professional development for teachers and principals at the campus level. This professional development would consist of training of the technologies needed, modeling and co-teaching the lessons, and providing just-in-time educational and technical support. Resources: Technology Plan Campus Improvement Plan STaR Chart Results for last 3 years Week 3 Report Evaluation Planning for Action Plan In order to measure the success of our Technology Action Plan, we must have an evaluation component in place. The following is a list of how we will measure success of our plan: Evaluation Components: • To evaluate the success of the online learning community for district leaders and campus principals in the areas of Educator Preparation and Development and Teaching and Learning, we will use STaR Chart data results for next school year. We will examine and review the trends in the data. • To evaluate teachers’ proficiency on the SBEC technology standards, we have a district database that contains data on all professionals in the district. We will continuously monitor the database to ensure every teacher have achieved mastery. • To ensure K-8 teachers and principals participate in the following professional development session, we will have sign in sheets and provide make-up sessions for anyone who is not able to attend the first session. To assess principal leadership in Page 6 – Revised October 2009
  • 7. promoting technology integration as well as teachers daily implementation of technology integration, the district leaders will conduct regular district walk-throughs at campuses. They will expect to observe technology integration and see student products that indicate project-based technology integration. Principals will also be required to conduct regular walk-throughs at their campus to assess technology integration. o Review the TA TEKS for the three grade level clusters (K-2 3-5, 6-8) o Take the 8th grade assessment to become familiar with the content, rigor, and format of the assessment o Collaborate with their grade level team, Curriculum Specialists, Instructional Technology Specialists, and Campus Instructional Technologists to develop a campus plan to integrate the TA TEKS into daily instruction (especially math). • District walk-throughs and student products will also assess whether campus principals have collaborated with district Curriculum Specialists, Instructional Technology Specialists, and Campus Instructional Technologists to review data, plan, and implement professional development to meet specific campus needs, find ways to bring technology into the classroom, and promote the creation of rubrics to assess project based learning. • The quality and effectiveness of ongoing professional development led by the Campus Instructional Technologists will be assessed through regular staff surveys, observation of daily integration of technology, and student products. • Overall success of the plan will be evaluated through the results of STaR Chart data, AEIS report (will expect increase in math scores), and Simple Assessment results (passing percentage of 8th grade TA TEKS proficiency should exceed the current 21% passing rate).
