Education Technology Task Force
On March 17, 2012, State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson appointed 48 volunteers to become members of his Education Technology Task Force. Gathering advice from the Task Force is the first step in the State Superintendent's effort to update the Education Technology Plan approved by the State Board of Education in 2005. Task Force members are expected to present their findings to the State Superintendent by July 1, 2012. The State Superintendent and his staff will then embark on a statewide tour to accept public comment on its findings.
For more information about the Task Force and how you can contribute to this work see Education Technology Task Force.
Education Technology K-12 Voucher Program
Funding for this program resulted from a Settlement Agreement between California consumers and a large technology corporation. Eligible schools may use vouchers to purchase hardware, software, technical support, and professional development. Public K-12 school districts that have an approved technology plan may apply on behalf of their eligible schools.
The K-12 High-Speed Network provides high-speed Internet access to California schools.
