Progress Report on the Long-Range Plan for Technology, 1996-2010. A Report to the 77th Texas Legislature from the Texas Education Agency.
Texas Education Agency, Austin.
In 1996, the Texas State Board of Education adopted the "Long-Range Plan for Technology, 1996-2010," and presented it to the Legislature. In 1998, the first progress report for this revised long-range plan was produced; it detailed the period from September 1996 through August 1998. This second progress report documents accomplishments and activities from September 1998 through August 2000. Highlighted in this report are the collaborations and progress made by the Texas public schools, regional education service centers and the Texas Education Agency toward implementation of this updated plan. This report describes progress on previous initiatives as well as on new projects being undertaken each year. The current Long-Range Plan includes four sections: Teaching and Learning; Educator Preparation and Development; Administration and Support Services; and Infrastructure for Technology. Progress in each of these areas is reported, followed by a discussion of services provided by Texas' 20 education service centers. A timeline of events and accomplishments is provided, beginning with the time period September 1983 through August 1984 and ending with the period September 1998 through August 2000. Descriptions of several initiatives of the Long-Range plan are also given with reports on current status. (AEF)
