SUPTS. MEMO. NO. 89
May 23, 1997
|FROM:||Richard T. La Pointe
Superintendent of Public Instruction
|SUBJECT:||Proposed Technology Standards for Instructional Personnel|
In July 1996, the Board of Education authorized the Department of Education to begin the required Virginia Register of Regulations' Provisions of the Administrative Process Act (APA) for proposed standards in the area of technology. Since that time, the Department staff has been working to acquire approval to process the standards through APA. Many of you have received copies of the document; however, a copy of the proposed technology standards for instructional personnel is attached to ensure that all school division personnel are aware of the proposed requirements. Even though the standards have not been approved, they may serve as a helpful guide as you develop professional development activities or technology plans. Notification of public hearings and the written comment period will be published in the near future. Please do not hesitate to contact Thomas A. Elliott, Assistant Superintendent for Compliance, at (804) 371-2522 if you have any questions concerning the proposed technology standards for instructional personnel. Questions pertaining to the content of the standards or the incorporation of them into division technology plans should be directed to Ida J. Hill, Division Chief for Technology, at (804) 225-2757. RTL:psp Attachment: A hard copy of this memo and its attachment will be sent to the superintendent's office.
