Technology for Parents

We have very good technology in this district and a technology staff to support it. We have a one-to-one laptop program at our middle and high schools and are piloting Chromebooks one-to-one at grades 5 and 6 at Oxford Elementary in the FY2017 school year. We have high speed internet access in every building and wireless networks to provide solid coverage everywhere. Having all of this in place is great, but it is really the easy part. The challenge for us is to support our teaching staff so that they have the know-how to use it most effectively with students. That will be my focus in the coming years. Indeed, that has already begun with the hiring of a Technology Integrator for the middle and high schools starting with FY2015. This year that job description will be extended to include the pilot at Oxford Elementary.

Check back every few months to look for updates. Thanks for your support.
