A synergized and inclusive technology infrastructure will have a focus on accessibility across the selection, acquisition, and use of technology within all policies and programs. This session will provide an overview of critical inclusive considerations including device capacity, the management and interoperability of devices, the accessibility of technology tools and resources and the security of such systems. The Center on Inclusive Technology & Education Systems (CITES) is developing a framework to empower school districts to create and sustain inclusive technology systems that serve all students. Participants will have the opportunity to learn from district leaders, share successes and hurdles and ask questions.
