The purpose of the current study was to better understand how pre-K-12 school leaders respond to the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) Standards. The instrumental case study involved school leaders with demonstrated success implementing learning technologies in elementary and middle level settings in a large southern, suburban school district. The study findings include: pre-K-12 school leaders benefit from the ISTE Standards’ framework to provide future-ready learning environments; the Standards serve as a technology guide to increase equity, inclusion, and digital citizenship; and school leaders benefit from participating as co-learners. Pre-K-12 school leaders can benefit from the current study’s findings and the ISTE Standards to support exemplary technology implementations for future-ready learning environments.
