PURPOSE & SCOPE
The Board of Education (BOE) has requested that the Superintendent form a 90-day task force Committee (i21 Now) comprised of key stakeholders including staff, business, education and government. The work work of this group is to focus on producing a high level framework of vision and opportunities and recommendation that build on the strengths of our current, nationally recognized i21 next generation learning and support SDUSD’s Vision 2020 goals. This committee will share ideas and initiatives which support the BOE Vision 2020 goals to provide access to technology, enhance classroom instruction, and develop digital literacy skills to engage, educate and empower students, teachers, and parents. San Diego Unified School District Superintendent Cindy Marten has appointed Matt Spathas as the Chair the i21 Now Committee.
GOALS & OUTCOMES
Using the original i21 program as a launch basis, the i21 Now Committee will collaborate in a wide range of new ideas to envision the next phase of i21. The committee will make high-level recommendations for further consideration by the Board in support of designing an efficient, cost effective program with core principles of equity, access, and student achievement. The i21 Now committee will incorporate student, teacher, and administrator feedback to the greatest extent possible throughout the process.

In order to facilitate a robust discussion within the 90-day timeline specified, the following subcommittees will convene. The Subcommittees listed below have been formed and will be co-chaired by by one SDUSD staff member and one community (business/government/education) member.
