K-12 Project Prioritization Scorecard Template for Chief Technology Officers

Re-prioritize project portfolios to align IT projects with strategic priorities and address COVID-19 and recession impacts

December 14, 2020

Key Insights

This project prioritization scorecard allows CTOs to track and prioritize projects based on industry-standard parameters.

The COVID-19 crisis and ensuing recession has had a profound impact on school district priorities and resources. Unless project portfolios created before the crisis emerged are re-prioritized, school districts will misdirect resources and may weaken their COVID-19 response. Nevertheless, re-prioritization can ensure that districts remain able to execute long-term strategy.

To help districts address these changing priorities and sustain transformation momentum, the District Technology Leadership Forum created a project re-prioritization scorecard. The scorecard includes two components:

  • Part I. Strategic Prioritization Indicators: Calculates a foundational and strategic score for project prioritization that can be used at any time (i.e., normal or crisis operations). We analyzed several partners’ existing scorecards and frameworks to compile this set of commonly utilized indicators and leading framework.
  • Part II. COVID-19 Escalator Indicators: Determines project contributions to COVID-19 related objectives. COVID-19 project scores or multipliers can then be applied to a Strategic Prioritization Score to re-prioritize projects. These indicators assess projects’ contributions to key operating goals required to safely bring students, teachers, and staff back to school amidst the COVID-19 pandemic.
