Technology is a key component of our educational strategy as we prepare our students for their future in a computer-driven world. The installation of SMARTBoards in classrooms throughout the district, along with our computer labs, library media centers, distance learning classrooms and video/multi-media programs is a reflection of our commitment to providing students with current, leading-edge technology and training.
Computers are used at all grade levels with age-appropriate instruction that includes digital citizenship. In high school, students interested in a career in engineering or computer technology have the opportunity to explore options through classes such as Computer-Aided Drafting and Design,Advanced Graphic Communications and Computer Integrated Manufacturing Systems, or through our Project Lead The Way pre-engineering program.
Technology is also used in our district to facilitate overall student achievement. A comprehensive information management/student assessment system allows us to closely monitor student progress, identify achievement gaps and improve instructional practices.
