This school-based study arose as a result of one secondary school's application to their District Technology Coordinator for further funding for technology. A need was perceived to keep pace with advancing technology by our administration, and by a group of teachers in the school. There are also new courses which are mandated by the province which required internet browsing capability and graphics programs which were beyond our current resources. A summary of the goals of the District Coordinator and the District Technology Committee are summarized in this report. A history of the development of technology in the school is described within the context of programs and people. Participant and non-participant observations were made by the author over the course of discussions with staff from January through March of 1999 regarding pedagogical concerns with technology. A survey was also used to determine the staff's perceived needs in the area of technology that was developed by the author and school technology committee.
