Technology Policy Committee We have formed a committee of volunteers to revise and create the districts technology policies. We will be revising the district Acceptable Use Policy, and the Sexting/Cell Phone Policy. We will be creating a district BYOD Policy. (Bring Your Own Device) Committee consists of all building principals, pupil services director, technology supervisor, teachers from each school, and parent volunteers from each school. The committee meets Mondays from 3:30-5:00PM at DPHS Library.
Survey of DPHS October 2014 The Information Technology department recently conducted a survey that was handed out to students and faculty of David Prouty High School. We received 328 completed surveys. Question 1: Do you use classroom technology on a consistent basis? 190 responders said they do use classroom technology on consistent basis compared to 138 who said they did not. The number could vary from quarter to quarter because students may not have the opportunity to use a computer at all due to the handful of labs and limited use by students in the library. Question 2: Having you been making use of our new Guest Wireless? 248 responders said they do use the guest wireless compared to 80 who said they do not. The rise of smartphones and tablets is definitely attributed to the use of the wireless by 76% of the responders, which could also account for the lower use of classroom technology/computers. Question 3: Have you made use of our technology Help Desk? 262 responders said they have NOT made use of the Technology Help Desk compared to 65 who have and 1 undecided. Students would not normally use the Help Desk unless they have a technology question or need a password reset. Teachers use the Help Desk for Technology issues either by phone or our TSS website. Question 4: Has your overall classroom technology experience been a positive one? 264 responders said that there experience with classroom technology has been a positive one compared to 58 who have not, 3 who are undecided and 3 who did not answer.
Survey of DPHS October 2014 On our survey we left a comments section which was optional. Out of the 328 responders, 99 (30% of the responders) responded. 28 responders said our Guest Wi-Fi needed to be improved, majority of complaints were made of the sign in process 26 responders said they would like to be able to use Phones/Tablets/Laptops in class more regularly. 14 responders said they wanted more Smart Boards in classrooms. 8 responders said they wanted more access to computers and classroom technology. 6 responders said they wanted a change in Website Policies and Restrictions. 17 responders were put into a miscellaneous category which varied concerns from speed of technology to updating of campus equipment.
