1992 Master Plan
The development of this Kentucky's first education technology plan, was a challenge. Possibly the most difficult aspect of this effort was overcoming the penchant of stakeholders to want to see everything in operation "right away". This, of course, was not possible since the Kentucky Education Technology System (KETS) was at first just a vision of the future. One that must first be "believed in" before it could be "seen"!
Undaunted by the absence of a blueprint verified by others, the people who wrote this plan succeeded in designing the future. In the final analysis, they did so because they were people of vision, who cared deeply about Kentucky's children.
