Dear County and District Superintendents and Charter School Administrators:

TECHNOLOGY PREPAREDNESS SURVEY: PREPARING FOR THE IMPLEMENTATION OF SMARTER BALANCED ASSESSMENTS

I am writing to inform you that a brief online survey from the California Department of Education (CDE) will be sent today to your local educational agency’s (LEA’s) information technology director or designee. I understand the critical importance of adequate technology resources for California schools. The information collected from this survey will help the CDE gauge the technology resources needed by California’s LEAs to implement the Smarter Balanced system of assessments.

More information about the minimum technology requirements for the Smarter Balanced assessment system is on the Smarter Balanced Technology Web page at http://www.smarterbalanced.org/smarter-balanced-assessments/technology/ External link opens in new window or tab..

Please note that this survey is different from the Smarter Balanced Technology Readiness Tool (TRT) survey, which requires more detailed information regarding the technology in your schools. LEAs are still encouraged to complete the TRT.

Questions about this brief technology survey or letter can be directed to the CDE Statewide Assessment Transition Office by phone at 916-445-8517 or by e-mail at sbac@cde.ca.gov.

Sincerely,

Tom Torlakson
