3. Enable teachers to move from whole-class to small group and individualized instruction.
4. Are a part of students' everyday lives.
Every effort shall be made to provide equal access to technology throughout the district's schools and classes.
The Board recognizes that trained teachers are needed to make the best use of the district's technology. Teachers and instructional staff shall receive training in using the technologies available to them. All district schools shall have the opportunity to obtain computers, software and other equipment.
The district's educational software shall be carefully selected and evaluated so as to meet the teachers' and students' needs and conform to district policy, regulations, and content standards.
