"Leveraging technology to transform education to improve the learning
and lives of students."

The Model Schools Program assists districts in integrating technology into the curriculum. The base service provides multiple days of training (on-site or in the Model Schools computer lab), workshops and the use of the Model Schools computer lab for district-run workshops.
  • Member districts may participate in regional, customized onsite workshops
  • Full participation involves designating a point of contact in the district to the services to ensure that districts are represented, and identify participants for special initiatives/projects
  • Membership includes shared regional technology training, facilitated planning, and collaborative work groups
  • Support and training for developing district/building technology plans that coincide with school improvement plans to promote effective integration of resources across all content areas
  • Support and training for MyLearningPlan (MLP), a web-based service for tracking and managing professional development activities for district staff and faculty
  • Purchasing and support for systematic programs
  • Districts may purchase additional training days and/or a percentage of a shared integration specialist for in-district use
  • Model Schools also supports online professional development
