Technology initiatives in public schools have been an important topic of discussion as educators work on implementing various strategies to enhance student achievement/success. The improvement in technology, both hardware and software, along with wider areas of internet coverage, has allowed educators to think about implementation of technology into schools. Many school districts across the United States have already implemented technology initiatives, such as one-to-one, for students in all grades and levels. The increased pressure on school administrators to improve student achievement/success has resulted in research that comes short of ongoing technology initiatives, especially in the rural schools. This research study will focus on examining the perceptions of rural school superintendents around leading ongoing technology initiatives.
