Technology has unlimited potential to increase both the breadth and depth of learning. Schools have a responsibility to provide access to the skills needed to produce responsible and productive users. The Educational Technology Plan for Henry County Schools builds on the Division’s recognized leadership position in educational applications of technology. It focuses on “leveling the playing field” by ensuring that all schools have equal capabilities for using technology and that all equipment is maintained in working order. It further provides a framework for continuous review and updating of these capabilities by all stakeholders.
An overview of the current status of technology in the division serves as the basis for an assessment of needs and the development of measurable goals in four key areas identified in the State Educational Technology Plan and the Division’s strategic plan. Our goals will address the following areas: Curriculum, Accountability, Professional Development, and Support.
