As required by s. 1011.62(12)(b), Florida Statutes (F.S.), Brevard Public Schools is obligated to submit to the Florida Department of Education, by October 1, 2015, a Digital Classrooms Plan (DCP) that has been adopted by the District School Board.


The attached draft plan endeavors to support school efforts and strategies aimed at improving outcomes related to student performance by integrating technology with classroom teaching and learning.


The DCP funding mechanism was first introduced last year.  Our Digital Classrooms allocation, based on FTE, was $818,492.00 for Fiscal Year 2015.  A full description of Brevard’s purchases and activities related to last year's plan are available online here:  http://tinyurl.com/bpsdcp1415
