technology component into their evaluation goals for next year.
Ensure they have additional leadership, resources and the help they
need to succeed. I know all too well what happens when goals are
placed in front of people and there is no support for attaining the
goal. I don't know what technology support they have nor have had
but a goal with out the proper support is a road block which becomes
a whip at evaluation time. I doubt if you intend this but your
description of the last principal sounds leads me to believe that
technology has been a very low item on the support menu.
It has been said before but warrants repeating, "If you think
education is expensive, try ignorance."
