9. Action Plan

f. Budget

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

A dollar amount and a funding source(s) or a projected funding source(s) is provided for each strategy.

When the purchase of technology is present in the budget, the “type” of technology is specified.


Narrative:

All strategies in the Organizational Management Plan are identified with funding types, if possible. Funds are downloaded to schools to supplement instructional technology resources. The use of funds is audited annually at each school by a team of central office auditors, and financial information is evaluated annually with the principal as part of the Results-Based Evaluation System.

For the district, funding is provided from multiple sources and through multiple objectives. Gwinnett County Public Schools uses Special-Purpose Local Option Sales Tax (SPLOST) revenues to supplement district-wide technology and facilities upgrades and additions, and the district also uses eRate funds to offset telecommunications costs. To see a summary of the eRate funding for the most recent applications, click here.

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.
