State Digital Learning Plan
New York has a state digital learning plan.
The USNY Statewide Learning Technology Plan guides the initiatives of the Office of Educational Design and Technology. It was approved by the New York State Board of Regents in February 2010. This plan is designed to harness the collective initiatives of the University of the State of New York (USNY), the most complete, interconnected system of educational services in the United States to achieve the mission of providing a user-friendly and seamless technology-enhanced learning environment that serves the increasing needs of our citizens.
State Requirements for District Digital Learning Plans
New York has requirements for districts for digital learning plans.
Per Part 100.12 of the New York State Commissioner’s Regulations, all New York State public school districts are required to “develop and maintain a plan, in a format prescribed by the commissioner, for the use of the instructional computer technology equipment.” The New York State Education Department (NYSED) collects and reviews district Instructional Technology Plans (ITPs) from school districts. Districts are required to submit a plan every three years. The next plan, covering 2018-2021, is due October 26, 2018.
