Model Schools Home Page
Model Schools is a comprehensive support program for districts and is comprised of educational technology professionals with specific areas of expertise. The purpose of the program is to assist districts in their efforts to integrate technology into curriculum as a tool to improve student achievement. 

Through the Model Schools Program, teachers, technology coordinators, and administrators are given opportunities to enhance their technology literacy via our new virtual school for learning, regional workshops, webinars, online professional development, and participation in our Curriculum Committees. Model Schools also encourages networking, sharing of best practices and envisioning of future technology uses through district participation in regional events; such as, Site Administrator meetings, T.H.E Symposium and Summer Institute.

Customized Training
In addition to 3 days of in-district customized training, a MSP Coordinator will provide the district with an introduction on new innovative teaching tools. This would incorporate technologies that are currently on the horizon in the field of technology integration.
Model Schools Coordinators also design and implement in-district training customized to district’s individual technology and instructional initiatives. 

New Virtual Support System
Model Schools now offers a virtual instructional support system. Offering daily live chat and screen sharing capabilities with a Model Schools Coordinator, the aim of this new service is to provide real-time support for administrators and teachers.


Staff Development Reimbursement
Districts may use Optional Expense Reimbursement through the Model Schools Program to aid district expenses associated with staff development in educational technology; such as, costs for substitute coverage when teachers attend Model School sessions, stipends paid to teacher-trainers for staff development sessions offered through Model Schools, or stipends paid to teachers for participation in Model Schools activities held outside the regular school day.
