 Plan for Educational Technology:

Table of Correspondences

Instructions: If the District Technology plan does not follow the sequence of the required elements for the technology plan, the district is requested to submit a "Table of Correspondences", of which the following is a sample.  In this table, for each required element, where the element is to be found within the existing technology plan should be specified in the "location" column.  Use page numbers, paragraph numbers, section labels, and/or leading words for relevant text to point precisely to the matching components in the district plan.  Post the Table of Correspondences (and Addendum if included) on the web and include the exact URL in the district's Consolidated Application.

Technology Plan Addendum

 

Directions: If the technology plan does not currently address all the required elements, the district should file an addendum that effectively certifies that the required elements will, in fact, be incorporated into the next revision of the plan.  The purpose of the Addendum is to add the required elements which have not yet been incorporated into the plan.

 

NOTE: It is anticipated that when the district files its next Consolidated Application, the technology plan will be expected to include all the required elements.  It is preferred that the technology plan follow the sequence of required elements, with any additional components required for e-rate purposes added at the end.  If the plan does follow the sequence, then the table of correspondences will no longer be needed.

 

To bring the current plan into compliance for the purposes of the Consolidated Application, the revisions may be in the form of an Addendum to the existing technology plan.  However, given the brief amount of time available in which to submit the upcoming  application for 2002-3 funds, it may not be feasible to obtain necessary board approval for an Addendum in time. 

 

Therefore, to meet the requirements for the June 2002 application, the Addendum may be affixed to the Table of Correspondences.

 

 

The Addendum included at the end of the Table of Correspondences should include:

1.       Statement that the existing plan does not currently address certain required items.  (Specify which items [1-17]).

2.       The addition of each of the required elements (to the extent possible within the current time constraints)

3.       Statement that work will be undertaken in the immediate future to incorporate the required elements into the technology plan.

4.       The date the plan revision will be completed.

5.       Statement that certifies that, upon completion of the plan revision, the district will both

a.       Post the revision on the district web site (URL specified), and

b.       Notify the state that the revision is complete and ready for review

 

AND

6.       Statement (if applicable) that a technology plan revision is currently in progress.

7.       Statement (if applicable) that although not formally a part of the technology plan, certain elements (specify which) are, in fact, informally in place.  In this case, identify each element and provide a brief description of how the element is, in fact, in effect.

8.       Statement (if applicable) that although the current technology plan is not yet due for revision, work will be undertaken during the forthcoming academic year to bring the existing plan into compliance with the required elements.
