The Instructional Technology Department believes that effective and relevant technology integration leads to student engagement and success in the classroom and then in the world. It is our mission to help equip teachers, staff, and students to fulfill that goal. The new ISTE Standards for Educators reflect this shift in the use of technology in the classroom. These new standards require teachers to move beyond using technology as simple replacement tools such as digital worksheets to create more engaging learning experiences with students. Professional development through workshops, coaching, and digital materials will be provided to help our district's teachers grow and be empowered in their teaching practice.
