Le Roy Central School
Software Purchasing Procedure
All software and hardware purchases will align themselves with the instructional goals and objectives of the Le Roy Central School District. Prior to purchase, software will be previewed by the classroom teacher(s) and evaluated for educational applicability and appropriateness. In addition, software must be deemed compatible with the individual workstation as well as the entire LCSD computer network. In order to assure this, the following procedure must be followed:
Approximately one year after the date of purchase and install, teachers will be asked to formally reflect upon the use of a given software or technology (Form B). The purpose of this reflection is twofold. First, it attempts to correlate the use of a given technology with some degree of student achievement. Second, in sharing proven practices, it is the hope of the LCSD Technology Services Department to begin to identify and record exemplary classroom uses of technology. These practices will then be shared with other teachers via the District web site. Where appropriate, student work should be submitted for inclusion in this collection.
