State Educational Technology Standards
Idaho has educational technology standards.
The Idaho State Department of Education leverages the ISTE Technology standards as the model for state LEA’s to use for their curriculum-mapping with technology and communication content standards.
State Digital Learning Plan
Idaho does not have a State Digital Learning Plan.
The state allows LEA’s to create and build their Education Technology Plan that best suits their student’s needs and growth. The state continues to support the LEA’s with planning, development and strategic decisions.
District Technology Planning Requirements
Idaho does not have requirements for district technology planning.
Independent school district level educational technology plans are not required by Idaho, but are highly encouraged. Idaho districts are required to have an Acceptable Use Policy that is made public. Typically school districts will have an Acceptable Use Policy embedded within their technology plan to stay up-to-date on the changing landscape. Acceptable Use Policies are required to be recorded and on-file at the Department of Education. The state provides planning and support for school districts that are building new plans or updating old versions.
