LACOE Technology Plan   

arrow Previous bar Next arrow

The County Board recognizes that technological resources can enhance student achievement by increasing student access to information, developing technological literacy skills, and providing instruction tailored to student needs. Effective use of technology can also increase the efficiency of the LACOE noninstructional operations and governance. The County Board is committed to the development and maintenance of a LACOE infrastructure and to provide professional development for the implementation of existing and new technologies.
