In June 2008, Las Virgenes Unified School District determined that it needed a comprehensive Technology Strategy. Primarily funded by the Las Virgenes Educational Foundation, combined with donated services, this project took over a year to complete.
The process included several hundred hours of interviews with teachers, staff, administrators, parents, students and community members. Unlike most reports the District receives, the goal and methodology of the project was to assist the District in creating a strategy, rather than just make recommendations. Beyond that, there were no specific goals or limitations — simply a process that gathered information, analysis and then delivering a report on the recognized patterns and suggested strategy.
The result is a 198-page document giving the background, status, and strategy that is available for public viewing. The Board of Education held a Study Session on October 14th, 2009 to review the document. The 5 main points of the strategy are outlined in the executive summary.
