District Technology Plan   

arrow Previous bar Next arrow

Effective use of technology can also increase the efficiency of the district's noninstructional operations and governance. The Board is committed to the development and maintenance of a districtwide infrastructure and to providing staff professional development that will allow the implementation of existing and new technologies.
