2009-2010 CTR Meeting



During previous school years, Campus Technology Representatives (CTR) from all campuses met once a month. These monthly meetings provided us with the opportunity to establish a line of communication between the Department of Technology and the schools. This memo does two things: 1) Provides you with a schedule of CTR Meetings and 2) How to Update your Campus Contacts information.

Through these meetings, CTRs have been instrumental in the facilitation and deployment of numerous initiatives. They have also contributed to multiple tasks, which are critical to the implementation of the Campus Technology Planning Guide. The CTRs have helped us complete a campus access survey, which disaggregates the number of instructional vs. administrative computers per campus, and campus software license survey. These data-collection instruments are critical to continued districtwide expenditures on technology-related purchases.
The CTRs will be instrumental in the selection of schools for conducting TEA mandated assessments--including 8th grade student technology literacy, STaR Chart, and more--as well as providing ongoing dialogue regarding other initiatives such as the gradebook and attendance tracking system (GATS), online professional learning opportunities, and other initiatives. We are grateful for their input and welcome their suggestions and comments coming from schools. We believe that this continues to be a quality means of communication with schools on future technology initiatives.
2-UPDATING CAMPUS CONTACT INFORMATION
The Office of Instructional Technology Services has also launched the Campus Technology Center, accessible from the __http://itls.saisd.net__ web site. The purpose of this site is to provide facilitated access to information campus technology representatives have deemed essential to campuses. Please be sure to complete the Campus Contacts Form available online at http://sn.im/campuscontacts, if you have not done so already, to ensure the Office of Instructional Technology has current GATS, CTR, Campus Web Coordinator and Calendar Contact information for your campus. You will need to login with your email account name and password.
Please contact the Office of Instructional Technology Services or Miguel Guhlin via email at __mguhlin@saisd.net__ or at 527-1400, if you have any questions.
