Guidance:   The Anticipated Item or Service column offers a drop-down menu of options as shown below. Select one category of item or service for each of the district’s top five anticipated purchases in priority order – 1= first priority, 2 = second priority and so on.  Selected Anticipated Items or Services should be planned instructional technology purchases beginning within the three (3) year cycle of this technology plan. Anticipated purchases do not necessarily need to be completed within the three (3) year cycle of this instructional technology plan.

If the district anticipates purchasing an item or service not included as an option on the drop down list, select “Other” and specify it/them in Question 1.a.

Next, select whether or not the purchase of the Anticipated Item or Service is expected to be a one-time or annual expenditure or both (e.g. initial purchase of new software AND annual payments for subscription licenses). Then, identify the funding source(s) the district anticipates using to pay for the expected purchases. If the district has identified a source not included in the check box options or at, the time of survey submission, has not identified a discrete funding source for the anticipated item or service expected to be purchased, select “Other” from among the available check boxes in the Funding Sources column and specify it/them in Question 1.a.

This plan can include staffing directly related to implementing the instructional technology plan and related professional development.

Infrastructure is considered an instructional technology investment.

Please note this question relates to funding sources, NOT funding mechanisms.  Example:  An Install-Purchase agreement (IPA) is a funding mechanism.  The source of the money to make the payments under the IPA is the funding source.
