Changes to the Instructional Technology Plan submission, certification and approval process

Changes have been made to the Instructional Technology Plan process. In 2017, districts will not be required to provide an update, but may do so, in order to ensure alignment with Smart Schools Investment Plans. In 2018, a new three-year plan will be required, and annual updates for years 2 and 3 will be optional. More information about these changes can be found here.
