Standards for Technology in New Construction UPDATE

Several months ago, the State Board of Education charged Peter Asmar, CIO and Associate State Superintendent, with developing standards for technology in new construction. Mr. Asmar formed a task force comprised of representatives of state agencies and LEAs, with districts taking the lead in the production of the document to help insure that it will be both helpful and useful for districts as they build new schools or embark on renovation projects.

Using the input from districts, standards were approved at the November 2006 State Board of Education meeting.
