District Technology Planning
Per Part 100.12 of Commissioner’s Regulations, all New York State public school districts are required to develop and maintain instructional technology plans.
NYSED's Office of Educational Design and Technology collects and reviews key information on district Instructional Technology Plans (ITPs) from school districts every three years. The current plan ends on June 30, 2021.
Through District Instructional Technology Plans, districts will address how they are meeting the Educational Technology expectations of the Board of Regents, as articulated in the USNY Statewide Learning Technology Plan.
Districts will identify how they will:
- Develop a strategic vision and goals to support student achievement and engagement through the seamless integration of technology into teaching and learning;
- Provide technology-enhanced, culturally- and linguistically-responsive learning environments to support improved teaching and learning;
- Increase equitable access to high-quality digital resources and standards-based, technology-rich learning experiences;
- Design, implement, and sustain a robust, secure network to ensure sufficient, reliable high-speed connectivity for learners, educators, and leaders; and
- Provide access to relevant and rigorous professional development to ensure educators and leaders are proficient in the integration of learning technologies.
