• Technology Planning: 

    Crowley ISD’s Technology Services have made several improvements over the past few years. Our 1:1 student device initiative (nicknamed Phoenix Project) has evolved with our population and our educational needs.  Currently, all 7th Grade - 12th Grade students receive a windows platform laptop with Office 365 accounts.     This encompasses 7 campuses; 2 - High Schools, 2 - 9th Grade Campuses, 3 - Middle Schools.   All other campuses have classroom sets of 15 iPads per class.

    Needs Assessment:

    A comprehensive needs assessment was conducted that included an external audit of technology services.   The audit was conducted by the Renaissance Institute in 2008 and again in 2016.   The objective of the audit was to broadly assess how technology is impacting learning, teaching, and business processes in CISD.   The 2008 report noted deficiencies in classroom technology, network infrastructure, security & compliance, staffing & staff development, and evaluation of the impact of teaching and learning.  The findings of the 2016 Technology Audit for Crowley ISD showed that Crowley ISD has implemented all the changes recommended in the 2008 report by The Renaissance Institute and has improved on many of their recommendations.
