The Technology Committee for School Improvement (TCSI) is the formalization of a pre-existing technology advisory group also known as TAG (Technology Advisory Group). Administrative Procedure 2:150R1 calls for the continuous evaluation of District 219’s Technology Plan set forth by the technology planning committee in January 2001. Therefore, a formal Technology Committee for School Improvement should be established whose goal in part should be to contribute to the on-going improvement of the District’s Technology Plan.
The purpose of this document is to establish the mission, responsibilities and organizational rules for this committee. This forum should provide for the continuous dialogue between the stakeholders (as defined in the State’s Technology Blueprint) and the technology department, the evaluation of new technologies and future direction and most importantly the continued advocacy for District 219’s Technology Plan.
Mission: The purpose of this committee is to encourage and elicit support from teachers, students, support staff, parents and others from the community to review, evaluate and recommend changes to the District 219 Board of Education Technology Plan.
Responsibilities: The scope of the Technology Committee for School Improvement’s responsibility includes all of the items listed below, and discussion of these topics will be initiated by the committee; others topics may be initiated by departments, the School Improvement Teams, the Board, or individuals in the District.
