Eastern Carver County Schools’ Technology Planning 2020-2030 is based on Eastern Carver County Schools’ Exceptional Personalized Learning and it calls for the District to provide learning that is personalized, engaging, and relevant. To do so, the district must focus on five key areas:
- Purposeful Learning
- Engagement with Learning
- Purposeful Instruction
- Learner Voice & Choice
To address these five key area resources will be provided in 4 main focuses. They are:
- Technology support & training
These resources will allow the district to provide/maintain infrastructure for wireless access throughout our buildings along with increased network capacity (including storage). The district’s commitment is to provide the right technologies when and where needed by both students and staff. This may include Chromebooks, PC computers, tablet PC’s, laptops, and others. In turn, learning will no longer be confined to the classroom but will be able to continue both outside the school building and school day. We also strongly believe that having support for teacher in classroom and students is also critical for the success of the District.
Eastern Carver County Schools also has greatly increased both its cyber and physical security over the last six years which includes secured entrances, electronic visitor check-in systems, enhanced security camera systems and enhanced door access control systems. District schools have a variety of access control levels at their respective main entrances and has allowed the District new way of responding to incidents in the schools, including make viewing of conditions in real time possible for law enforcement agencies possibly resulting in reduced response times if needed and advance knowledge of conditions upon arrival. Cyber security is also key to ensure protection when working online as well protecting data on District’s students and staff. District has already reduced the level of risk over the last six years and this plan will allow the district to keep moving forward.
