Technology leaders investigate and model review and replacement policies. They conduct a comprehensive internal inventory and review disposal policies. Technology leaders commit to a review and replacement policy that is both economically efficient and environmentally responsible. This policy is formally documented and integrated with district teaching and learning priorities. Technology leaders build a plan for reviewing and replacing all technology devices and infrastructure. They build this into annual maintenance and operations budgets. Technology leaders prepare a comprehensive plan that documents and updates policies, current inventories; defines upgrade and replacement schedules; identifies annual budgets; and outlines an environmentally responsible disposal policy.
