This 2015-2018 CESA5 Information and Technology Plan documents the current information and technology environment and makes recommendations for goals and three-year action plans which will support increased student learning opportunities through collaboration and leadership for effective uses of information and technology tools.
In support of the agency's mission and strategic goals, this three-year plan serves as a blueprint for expanding the effective use of information and technology resources to support student learning in CESA 5 alternative schools; the seamless integration of Information and Technology Literacy Standards into curriculum-based, engaged learning activities; and expanded professional development options and access to digital resources for staff, school districts, and teachers. It provides a framework for expanded agency efficiency, collaboration, and communication and actively involves all CESA 5 departments and projects in strategies for implementation.
The CESA 5 Leadership Design Team has identified three primary goals for this three-year plan:
1) CESA 5 will improve communication, collaboration, and efficiency within the agency and with our school districts and clients.
2) CESA 5 will develop an agency wide coaching model to support educators in enhancing instruction.
3) CESA 5 will create an Online Professional Development department dedicated to researching and developing online course offerings.
4) CESA 5 will create technology-rich alternative schools that will prepare students for successful transitions to home schools or
The plan also outlines implementation and evaluation strategies for each goal, addresses the mechanics and funding, and presents strategies for the monitoring, evaluation, and revision of the plan on an ongoing basis.
