A District Technology plan is no longer required as of July 1, 2015
It is recommended that organizations continue to use the Technology plan as an internal document. Technology plans can still be submitted to the Department of Education but it is no longer required
The District Technology Plan is a document that guides the school districts in appropriating technology to effectively teach students, develop staff proficiencies, and maximize technology equipment usage. The Department of Education recommends that a Technology Plan be on file for each educational entity that receives federal funding for telecommunications services as filed by the state (E-Rate).
The South Dakota Department of Education has provided a standardized format to assist school districts in developing and revising their plans. It is recommended that this format be followed when compiling the District Technology Plan. Each district may add other components or information to make the Tech Plan a viable document individualized for each district.
Technology plans and revision addendums can be submitted electronically to firstname.lastname@example.org or can be mailed to:
