SUPTS. MEMO. NO. 38

ADMINISTRATIVE

TO: Division Superintendents
FROM: Richard T. La Pointe
Superintendent of Public Instruction
SUBJECT: Technology Training

 
  Over the last several years, we have been extremely
  fortunate in the amount of energy and money invested in
  putting technology into our K-12 schools.  These resources
  have enabled us to automate our libraries, begin networking
  our schools, greatly improve our student to computer ratio,
  and put us on the road to full connectivity with the
  Information Superhighway.

  Now, as a next step in increasing our skills with these new
  technologies, we want to ensure that training opportunities
  are available to school personnel.  In a few days, the
  attached survey will be sent to your technology
  coordinators.  The purpose of this survey is to help us
  develop insight into the scope of technology training
  required and how that training might best be  provided.  We
  hope to use compilations and summaries of this information
  for legislative reports, to determine training needs
  statewide, and to meet goals in state and local technology
  plans.

  Please return this survey to Joe Aulino by July 1, 1997. 
  You can fax your answers to (804) 371-8978 or mail your
  forms to:

                          Joe Aulino
