Using the Future Ready Goals and Action Steps

Each of the FRNC gear groups has written a comprehensive set of goals and provided recommended action steps supporting their goals to help move digital learning and education technology forward in Nebraska. To assist districts and schools in aligning their work to this plan, icons representing common state and national education initiatives were created and then aligned to each goal and action step. The table below gives guidance to each of the icons used and which initiative the icon represents. In many cases, the goals and action steps identified support work on multiple initiatives and each icon is shown to indicate these matches.

This icon indicates that the Goal or action step is tied to an AQuESTT tenet or work that supports an AQuESTT tenet.
This icon indicates that the Goal or action step is tied to ESSA either as a support of the act or because it is tied to available ESSA monies or grant opportunities.
This icon indicates that this Goal or action step is directly linked to a Goal or action step of another Future Ready Gear.
This icon indicates that this Goal or action step is tied to a recommendation that is found within the 2017 National Education Technology plan.
This icon indicates that this Goal or action step supports a goal or advances the work of a Nebraska State Board of Education goal.
