2009-12 FCPS - Frederick County Public Schools


The need for continuing educational reform and improved student learning is clear. So are the

vision and goals of this Plan that outline how technology can make significant and positive

contributions to the effort. FCPS must:

Involve all key stakeholders in the planning, implementation, and evaluation of the Plan.

Establish clear goals and objectives, and accountability in the Plan.

Communicate the Plan’s vision, goals and objectives, and accountability to all


Secure and maintain adequate funding to support the Plan.

Monitor measure and report progress on the Plan’s implementation to all stakeholders.

The responsibilities and challenges ahead of us are great. There is no dispute that our nation’s

students need to have the knowledge and competence to compete in an increasingly technologydriven

society. This means that new models of education facilitated by technology are

necessary. Reforms within our system will require strong leadership and dedication and a

willingness to restructure learning in fundamental ways. That leadership will come from within

FCPS across all levels; from both those individuals in the classroom and those individuals who

serve in a leadership capacity. This exciting era of creative innovations and transformation

provides an opportunity for a spectacular rise in student achievement as we reach out to the

Digital Natives of today and the future. We approach the implementation of this Plan with

confidence that we as policy makers, administrators, teachers, parents, and students can meet

these challenges.
