Technology

The District continues to strive to offer its students, staff and the community it serves the best technology available to support education and enhance the learning experience.

Recently many enhancements to our technological landscape were made to improve student achievement; added Parent Portal module, purchased interactive whiteboards for all  classrooms, integrated e-Readers, Chromebooks and iPads as instructional tools at all schools. A wireless infrastructure upgrade project was launched during the 2014-15 school year, the project will result in wireless access points being available in all learning areas. All computer labs are equipped to support the latest instructional software and learning tools.

In addition to providing our students with the best technology available, we've also expanded the number of technology learning opportunities. Our students are offered workshops in computer coding, robotics, web design and cyber-security/computer forensics.

Anytime is a good time to learn, to support that end we offer our students have access to the computing environment 24 hours a day/7 days a week.

The District understands the importance the community plays in education and we continue to look for ways to build a stronger partnership with members of our community. We continue to offer learning opportunities to community members. In the past, we have offered workshops covering the following areas: Basic Internet Usage, web page design, and an overview of business productivity tools.

We remain committed to researching and acquiring the best technology to advance student achievement.
