8. Goals and Benchmarks

b. Benchmarks

Guidelines / Requirements for compliance in this section (from the Peer-Response Rubric):

Each goal is accompanied by benchmarks that serve as tangible indicators of successful progress toward goal completion.


Indicators of success are built into the management plans identified in Section 8a. Due to the varied nature of the plans, there are no specific benchmarks that can be applied to all of the activities. Instead, the division leaders are responsible for managing specific plans and working with staff members to ensure completion.

To aid with the reading of the specific objectives, all of the plans are organized and separated by our seven Strategic Goals, as applicable to the scope of this instructional technology plan. Click on the following links to see the detail to each section:

  1. Ensure a world-class education for all students by focusing on teaching and learning the Academic Knowledge and Skills (AKS) curriculum.
  2. Ensure a safe, secure, and orderly environment for all.
  3. Optimize student achievement through responsible stewardship of its financial resources and the proactive pursuit of all resources necessary to meet current and future demands.
  4. Recruit, employ, develop, and retain a workforce that achieves the mission and goals of the organization.
  5. Meet the continuing and changing demand for essential information through technological systems and processes that support effective performance and desired results.
  6. Provide and manage the system's facilities and operations in an exemplary manner as determined by programmatic needs and best management practices.
  7. Apply continuous quality improvement strategies and principles as the way the organization does business.

Many local school successes are a result of careful strategizing at the local school level throughout the school year. Highlights of local school successes are identified in each School Accountability Report. For more information about these reports, please see Appendix D: School Accountability Reports.
