F.I.T.T. Program Overview : "Flexible Instructional Technology Tools"
The current specifications for a “Standard District instructional environment” (under Bond Modernization) includes such facilities technologies as an LCD projector, document camera, A/V station with DVD-VCR, speaker amplification, digital tuner, minimum data ports, etc.: Thus far, it lacks the standard instructional computer (“brains”) of the modernized classroom.

The primary goal of the “Flexible Instructional Technology Tool” (FITT) initiative is to provide a high quality, powerful, and equitable instructional computing environment while striving for a new standard in day-to-day technology reliability, file storage/archival automation, system security, and workforce optimization (technical implementation and ongoing support systems). Through coordinated and optimized computer preparation, management, and maintenance, as well as long-term staff training and user support systems, District and Site personnel can work most coherently and efficiently – neither in isolation nor with a multitude of scenarios to try to simultaneously manage and support.

A standard instructional computer provides an equitable, flexible option to enhance student instruction and the learning process:
·         Mobile (laptop) format for maximum instructor flexibility and usefulness (anytime/anywhere instruction, planning, collaboration, communications, curriculum development, etc.).
·         The Tablet Computer format: Includes complete “Smart” (interactive whiteboard-like) capabilities for every classroom/instruction area (at a fraction of the cost), as well as editing, annotation, and “eBook” features outside of the classroom.
·         With the future development of wireless school networking (already in the Bond specification for modernization – to be developed over succeeding years), even greater flexibility will be attained from this mobile platform.
