Technology Survey

Page history last edited by Mike King 10 years, 3 months ago


Conducting a needs assessment survey will serve two purposes: 1) to provide data as a means to assess the district’s need for technology in specific areas, so that the school can make decisions concerning priority targets for technology improvement; 2) to provide data at the onset of the project that will serve as benchmarks for the school to measure continuous growth. The Target Area Assessment Survey should be the centerpiece of the planning process, the database from which the technology team unfolds its vision for the future. Target area assessment means obtaining information about obstacles the technology committee may face as it begins the planning process. These obstacles should be outlined in terms of “What Is?” and “What Should Be?” Data gained from the assessment process should help the steering committee identify the school’s technology needs and help to prioritize these needs in the planning process. The needs assessment survey will give the steering committee information about staff readiness for technology and should include information on the following five areas of importance


  • Curriculum Integration,
  • Professional Development,
  • Infrastructure and Telecommunications Services,
  • Equitable use of Technology,
  • Assessment and Reporting.


Conducting a needs assessment survey is a three-fold process. First, the steering committee must identify target area and the people they want to survey. Second, the steering committee must distribute the needs assessment surveys. Third, the committee must compile the information once the surveys have been returned.


Over the course of the last three years, the Dodge City Public Schools have accomplished a lot in the area of educational technology. The district realizes that using technology in schools is no longer an option and we are committed to providing 21st Century tools to all students and staff. With that in mind, we have initiated the process of updating our three-Year District Technology Plan and would like to engage representatives of our entire community in conversation about what we are doing well and what we need to focus for the future.


The district has engaged the services of Mr. Ray Wipf as our appointed Information Technology Director, to articulate the optimal characteristics that encourage technology-supported education improvement that focuses on preparing students to live, learn, and work in the 21st century. Through “A Vision of the Future” the Dodge City Public School District would like to invite our staff, students, and community to provide input via the following surveys.


Dodge City Public Schools is currently engaged in an in-depth review of our technology needs for the future. The review will provide the information necessary for the ongoing development and implementation of our district long-range technology plan. This ongoing plan is designed to utilize technology to create a positive impact on student learning and the effective use of staff, time, and resources. The closing date for the district technology software assessment survey will be Monday December 21, 2009.
