District Technology Planning
The 2017 instructional technology plan (ITP) is now closed. There was no requirement to update the plan in 2017. Districts that did not submit an update in 2017 should not be concerned that the status of their 2017 plan shows “unsubmitted.” The district’s 2016 plan will remain in approved status until the due date for the 2018-2021 ITP in October of 2018.
Per Part 100.12 of the Commissioner’s Regulations, all New York State public school districts are required to “develop and maintain a plan, in a format prescribed by the commissioner, for the use of the instructional computer technology equipment.”
The New York State Education Department (NYSED) collects and reviews district Instructional Technology Plans (ITPs) from school districts through an online system accessed through the NYSED Business Portal. The ITP is designed to allow districts the opportunity to compile all data related to their technology planning and needs in one location. The data collected in the ITP may be used as the basis for funding opportunities and will satisfy the New York State Education Department's requirement that all school districts submit technology plans per NYCRR 100.12.
District Instructional Technology Plans (ITP) are three-year plans. The current plan ends on June 30, 2018.
