Technology in Massachusetts Schools 2005-2006
Dear Educators, Parents, and Other Interested Parties,
I am pleased to share with you this report, Technology in Massachusetts Schools 2005-2006, which includes findings from the data submitted electronically by school districts in 2006. As this report shows, Massachusetts school districts continue to make progress in providing the conditions that support the effective use of technology.
The Department uses the data submitted by school districts to gauge their progress in implementing their technology plans. Through this process we are able to approve districts' plans, making the districts eligible for funding such as E-rate discounts and technology grants.
We look forward to working with you toward our mutual goal of increasing student achievement through the use of technology. As you read this report, you will learn about technology resources that the Department offers to help you in your efforts.
I hope that you will find this report helpful in your technology planning.
David P. Driscoll
