The rationale for technology is many-sided.

Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS) is in the process of implementing a technology training and technical support program to the schools. This is a new approach for the county schools. Included in the FCPS FY95 budget are funds to employ 23 individuals called technology training specialists. Each technology training specialist will be assigned to one of the county high school pyramids. A pyramid consists of a high school and the middle and elementary schools that feed into it.

The technology training specialists will provide instructional technology application training for the teachers and administrators in the schools. They may provide the training directly or coordinate the efforts of technology trainers from the central office. In addition, they will devote about one-third of their time to technical trouble-shooting in the schools. This will range from diagnosis of a problem and referring the situation to the appropriate support service in the county or correcting minor hardware and software problems.

The rationale for the Instructional Technology Plan is many-sided:
