The work a school does in the building to help support technology and help students and teachers gain technology skills is the most important work an STLP can do.
Many schools begin reaching out in the community to help that community using technology.
A school can decide to become involved outside the building by attending an event in which student demonstrations and recognition is woven into each event.
When a school leaves the building for one of the events, a judge must be asked to attend, too.
Along with support and endorsement form Superintendents, Principals, and District EdTech leaders (DTC, CIO), the STLP Coordinator plays a key part in making STLP a successful experience for all participants.
Schools decide which events in which to participate. Online registration is required to attend or participate. STLP groups are welcome to register as “Attend Only” for Regionals or State Championship (meaning your group will be onsite to experience the event, but not participate in any competitions).
