EXECUTIVE SUMMARY
Garner Independent School District has made great progress in technology usage by purchasing new equipment, updating existing infrastructure, and providing professional development for all instructional staff. We received support for these efforts through various funding sources. Collaborative efforts in funding, research, product development and maintenance are responsible for the growth. In order to continue to excel and maintain our success, Garner ISD intends to focus on training opportunities for our staff and promoting an atmosphere where technology is eagerly embraced. Our latest undertaking was to acquire mobile devices with the intent of transforming the learning experience in the classroom to accomplish two goals. The first goal is to replicate for students the manner they connect with the world of information and the creation tools available to them both in and out of the school environment. The second goal is to level the digital divide between the haves and have-nots. The district has instituted a policy of "Bring your own device", but provides mobile devices to students who do not bring a device. Major tenets of our Plan include replacing/updating outdated equipment to continue to bring the capabilities of our infrastructure to a higher level. This is in part because of 1)an increase in network traffic due to our changing demand for technology, 2) our need to increase access to training for district staff, and 3) to further incorporate technology into classroom instruction. The addition of new staff members and the continued update in technology resources requires continued training for all teaching staff members. Attendance at teacher conferences and membership in the area cooperative technology group allows an influx of new products and services to be reviewed and implemented. Grants are a major source of support for new equipment and the ability to provide appropriate training. Every student within Garner ISD is currently receiving technology training, so our key focus is enhancement of that training. The Garner Independent School District Plan for Technology is intended to cover all facets of technology in the District for the next year. The vision for technology as outlined in this plan is aligned with the vision of the Board for our District. Since technology is an ever-changing entity and newly emerging technologies are becoming available daily, our Plan is intended as a framework to be built upon as new needs are determined. As the Plan is evaluated, new goals will be added to meet new needs, and goals that have been completed will be removed. All students and employees of the District will benefit from this plan. In order to realize this plan, Garner ISD has made a commitment to dedicate a minimum of three percent of the annual total budget to technology.

NEEDS ASSESSMENT
Assessment Process: Garner ISD Technology Committee will meet four times during the school year to evaluate whether emerging needs and established deadlines are met. After each meeting, the committee will report their findings to the Superintendent and to Garner ISD School Board. 

In order to ensure that timely progress is made toward meeting the goals of the Long Range Plan for Technology, the chairman of Garner ISD Technology Committee will update the Texas STaR Chart data for each campus in May of each year. Evaluation of this data will include: 

1.Reviewing lesson plans to ensure that technology is incorporated appropriately; 
2.Observing the actual use of technology in classrooms; 
3.Documenting student use of computer labs by sign-in logs; 
4.Collecting samples of student work which was developed while using technology; and, 
5.Evaluating the utilization and future needs of technology in correlation to the Texas STaR Chart data via a survey form completed by teachers. 

Efforts to acquire emerging technologies and state of the art equipment as outlined in the plan will be documented by accurate technology inventories and by purchase orders which demonstrate current fund expenditures for new or replacement technology. 

Existing Conditions:
Garner ISD will follow the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) for Technology Applications. The district will also anticipate the revised Technology Applications TEKS so that teachers are ready to incorporate them into the curriculum for 2012-2013. Technology will be integrated into other content areas, so that the applications are used to enhance learning. The TEKS covers use of different types of hardware and software, gathering information, communicating, and problem solving. Teachers will use technology to enhance student learning and prepare students to be global citizens. Students will be engaged in animated e-learning tutorials, interactive learning exercises, and offline activities to apply concepts. It is the teacher’s responsibility to ensure that students are being taught these skills. Teachers and administrators will provide training to the staff and provide support as needed. 

Elementary students will also have daily sessions in a computer lab, where they will have structured assignments on a computer. Mobile devices will be used in the classroom in support of the curriculum. In the lab students will work with software programs to include: Reading programs; IStation and Accelerated Reader, Math programs; Think through Math, IXL, Brain Pop and TMSDS. Students who complete technology assignments are encouraged to work on regular classroom assignments or enrichment activities during their computer time. 

Junior high students are required to use mobile technology devices in support of the curriculum. All Microsoft Office programs, Microsoft Publisher and Pinnacle video editing software are also taught and utilized in the middle grades. A large printer/plotter provides exceptional photo quality banners and prints for special projects. 

The technology director and campus contacts will support teachers. All teachers and support staff will participate in technology training, which focuses on the use of Project Share applications, library/media resources, mobile device applications, and website management. Teachers will be encouraged to "flip" aspects of their classroom using technology. In addition, there will be scheduled meetings where the technology TEKS are the topic. Teachers are also encouraged to attend technology related workshops on their own and can be released from classroom duties for this reason. 

Garner ISD has made great strides in technology enhancements to instruction in the last few years. The District has accomplished this by maximizing all funds available for technology. Garner ISD currently has over 120 personal computers operating with a Windows XP and Windows 7 operating systems. The number of new computers that replaced old ones available on campus has more than tripled in four years. These machines are networked and provide Internet access to all classrooms and administrative offices. Four of the computers are laptop computers allowing staff, students and administration time away from the regular school day to create and modify programs to assist students in learning. Three networked printer/copiers/scanners are available and operating for these computers. The computer lab now has twenty-seven, three year old Dell computers with flat panel monitors installed. An additional computer lab contains twelve computers that represent technology just a few years old. DLP projectors and document cameras are installed in all classrooms. One digital camcorder and a few DVD burners create highly advanced video and audio projects. All teachers have high definition web cameras which are used for classroom collaboration projects worldwide. Interactive white-boards and software available in all classrooms.

Technology Needs:
Garner Independent School District (Garner ISD) strives to build on the advances achieved in technology with each passing year. This goal mandates that we provide the best training available in technology to the students who will be faced with working in an advanced technological world.We also must provide teachers and staff the best equipment to make the most of today’s curricular innovations. With that in mind, our needs fall into three general categories. 

The first category of needs we face is that Garner ISD must keep current in instructional hardware and software to make the most of the training time offered to young people in our school. Obsolete equipment must be replaced on a schedule to prevent an emergent demand upon a strict budget facing numerous needs. Software updates needed are both instructional and system-wide. The need for upgrades of word processing, spreadsheet and other operations software are equaled by a need for security software, testing software and innovative subject area software. The widespread use of computers demands wireless networking to access technology in remote sites. We are currently developing long range plans to meet the ever changing technology needs for the district. 

Our second category of need is closely aligned with our need for new hardware and software. As previously noted, training for staff is critical. Staff development offerings with regard to the incorporation of technology into classroom instruction, as well as education for new hardware and software is required to keep pace with new developments in the field. Additional training to facilitate technology education by teachers for students is needed in order to make the knowledge acquisition relevant to youth. 

Finally, maintenance and infrastructure costs are increasing annually. Communication lines, Internet access and local area networking for email and network software applications place huge demands on budgeting and space. Garner ISD increased the coverage and bandwidth of its wireless networking to provide complete coverage to all areas of the campus in 2011. Server capacity was increased 10 fold in 2012. However, connectivity within the district and to students at home is an on-going expense that must be addressed. Program connections via the distance learning lab are being added regularly at a great expense both for training of staff and payments for programming time and expenses. Regular maintenance of hardware is necessary, as is maintenance of software issues due to the incorporation of harmful software from outside sources. 

Although it is very difficult for schools to keep up with the rapid rate of technology development, Garner ISD is committed and will continue to provide the best possible training, instruction and equipment to meet the technology demands of the future.
