Stephanie Maturo, director of technology for the Fulton City School District, recently gave an overview of the district’s technology plan to the board of education.
She spoke of new programs that have been implemented, which are all related to the reform agenda, specifically the Annual Professional Performance Review.
The Regents Reform Agenda is based on the goal that all students will graduate from high school in New York State ready for college and careers. Such readiness will ensure that all students can successfully participate in an increasingly connected world, said Maturo.
LinkIt! is an online assessment creation tool being used to assess students from kindergarten to the twelfth grade. It tracks students mastery of the Common Core Standards and provides data analysis of how Fulton students are doing on state assessments.
OASYS is the system that is used for managing teacher evaluations. Its software features evaluation programs for teachers, principals and administrators and includes auto-fill templates on self-reflective assessments, classroom observations and informal walk-throughs.
Interactive whiteboards continue to be installed in the classroom. In 2011, there were 32 interactive whiteboards in the district and that number has grown to 171 as of last week.
