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


Narrative:

Data collection strategies for goals and benchmarks in the Gwinnett County Public Schools (GCPS) Organizational Management Plan are as varied as the plan itself. These plans often have the measurement criteria built into them as an objective:

Rather than relying on the above measurment criteria, division leaders are responsible for managing specific plans and working with staff members to ensure completion. Where possible, specific individuals are listed in the Organizational Management Plans as specific owners. 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.

In terms of impacting student achievement, student technology literacy, and the quality of students' learning, the site-based management of each school allows the local schools to focus on integrating technology within the curriculum (see Section 3b for more information). However, many schools report the use of instructional technology in their "Accountability Reports," which are publicly available documents that highlight test scores, Local School Plans for Improvement, and Adequate Yearly Progress information.
