A ten-year Comprehensive Technology Plan (CTP) provides an actionable, practical and cost-effective way for NYS school districts to get the technology systems needed to meet long-range district goals.

A well-developed CTP provides a number of benefits to districts:

  • Aligns the various, ongoing planning efforts of district staff (e.g., Instructional Tech Plans, Professional Development, Capital Projects) with future technology system needs. (Learn more about Aligning Technology with District Goals.)
  • Includes and maximizes all available funding sources. (Learn more about Technology Planning Touchpoints.)
  • Highlights gaps in projects and budgets between goals and available resources.
  • Addresses important, less-visible needs of all districts such as Technology Infrastructure, staff training, technical support, and refresh rates. (Learn more about Long-Range Technology Project Financial Planning.)
  • Accounts for future technology development (i.e., in 5 – 10 years).

Sample District CTP

The best way to understand a Comprehensive Technology Plan is to see one as shown in the graphic shown below. (Click anywhere on the graphic to view a larger PDF.)

Note that there are many different formats for a CTP including longer narrative documents, GANNT charts and using other project planning tools. The one-sheet version shown here has been developed by Archi-Technology based on dozens of NYS district clients in the last three years.
