Technology Plans are Required by the State:
Campus and district improvement plans adopted under the requirements of the Texas Education Code must include the integration of technology in instructional and administrative programs
Under the federal No Child Left Behind Act of 2001, Title II, Part D, Enhancing Education Through Technology, the law states that in order to be eligible to receive a subgrant from the State educational agency, a local educational agency or eligible local entity shall sub it to the State educational agency an application containing a new or updated local long-range strategic educational technology plan that is consistent with the objectives of the statewide educational plan.
In addition, schools and districts are required to have an approved technology plan to participate in the federal Schools and Libraries Universal Service Support Mechanism better known as E-Rate. Resource: Texas e-Plan Online Technology Planning System (2010)
E-Rate is a common name for The Schools and Libraries Universal Service Fund
It provides discounts to assist schools and libraries
This assistance helps obtain affordable telecommunications services and Internet access.
TEA approves technology plans for K-12 schools.
The assessment tools for technology plans are the Texas STaR Charts.
The Texas STaR Charts are completed once a year.
