Technology Plans

Provides information on developing an education technology plan.

Background Information

The purpose of a local educational agency (LEA) educational technology plan is to guide the use of technology, by establishing clear goals and a realistic, comprehensive strategy to improve education through technology. The strategy should include how professional development will support staff in the use of technology in the classroom, as well as how information technology assets and services will be managed to support learning. LEAs are strongly encouraged to develop and implement a technology plan in support of a comprehensive strategy to improve education.

In the 2014-15 year, the California Department of Education collaborated with local technologists to consolidate technology plan content into a single template, and set of criteria and guiding questions.
