​Technology Campus Standard Changes


Project Description

Students and teachers across the District need the opportunity to access a technology device. Students in need of a device would be allowed to check‐out a device from the Library Media Center just as they do a book. Devices would be checked out for long‐term use.

Technology is constantly changing and evolving. This fund allows the district to adapt technology standards in the classrooms and the district to keep up with evolving technology.


Background & Justification

Students for many reasons do not have or cannot bring a device to use either in the classroom or at home. Therefore in the Technology/Information – Age, the District must ensure each student has an opportunity to access the numerous digital resources that Katy ISD provides. Students would simply go to their campus library media center and check‐out the device as they would a book. The student would be allowed to check out the device for a 2‐week period. Providing these devices to students ensures equal access to digital content and extends learning outside the classroom.

Currently the teachers and students have access to a stationary desktop computer connected to a projection system within their classroom. Providing a mobile device ensures mobility within the campus or classroom as well as the opportunity to take the mobile device home if they so choose.
