Model Schools

Model Schools

The Model Schools Program leads and supports districts in using technology to provide the best possible learning environment for all students.  Model Schools personnel use a range of student outcome and classroom impact data to design and deliver professional development that promotes technology integration.

Our Technology Integration Specialists focus on providing ongoing professional development that helps teachers integrate relevant technology into their classrooms.  All of our instructional specialists embed technology integration into their work.

Dedicated FTE’s:  In addition to general support, districts can purchase a dedicated person, by the FTE, to work directly with them at the district or building level.
