A Technology Plan for Warren Township High School

   

 Budget/Financial Plan  

The charts below provide information about budget lines that we use to purchase and support technology and to provide training.

When funds are available, we rely on the following sources of grant funding to support technology:

·        Title VI funding supports our T-1 to the Internet at each campus and the development of our wireless network. Title II has funded calculator training for our math instructors.

·        Block grants fund our Connected University subscription and our BDIT professional development sessions.

·        We have submitted a grant application through Safe Schools program for bar code/ID technology to allow us to monitor student participation at large events such as football games and dances.

·        The Education to Careers program has provided career counseling and funds for subscriptions to an online career database/web site.

·        Through the eRate we have received discounts on our telephony and telecommunications charges.

·        Our vocational educators purchase a variety of computing devices through the Carl Perkins and Program Improvement Grants.

·        Closing the Gap: This Illinois grant program (formerly TIP program) helped us establish an engaged learning program and will help us continue this program.

·        School Improvement: To coordinate technology programs with school improvement initiatives, the Technology Director collaborates with curriculum leaders, administrators, and a consortium of sender district and community technology planners. Examples include school vision activities, leadership training, Space Committee, Joint Technology Institute Day planning and execution, and presence at open house events.

It should be noted that we began a program of technology leasing during the FY2001 school year. This program allowed us to establish a robust infrastructure to support our expanding program and has allowed us to expand our programs while still support existing installations—something that our growth has demanded.

Other departments do some purchasing of software through their own budget lines, including foreign language and the libraries, the latter of which purchases online databases.

Salary lines support the following personnel who are directly involved in technology support: 

·         Director of Educational Technologies

·         Network Administrator

·         Department Secretary

·         2 Instructional Aides, who support students and teachers in labs and classrooms

·         2 Technicians for Educational Computing, who focus on supporting computing for learning, in classrooms and labs

·         2 Technicians, one who supports administrative office computing, and one who supports our new student information system (hired as part of this plan)

·         1 clerk, who supports the foreign language lab

Other staff who report to the Technology Director and who also support technology include the following: 

·         2 Librarians, one at each campus

·         1 AV-Studio Director

·         3 Library clerks

·         2 AV Clerks

Budget for FY03 (Note: Tech Plan strategies that require funding--beyond that established during previous years--are listed)
