Goal - Digital Learning

Description:
 

The purpose behind the educational use of technology is to better serve the curriculum and learning needs of students. Technology is integral to actualizing the district's stated vision and mission. Most notably, it is a powerful tool for personalizing learning opportunities and differentiating instruction. Through training and regular use of technology, staff become experts in ensuring that the right technology tool is employed to provide our students with opportunities to learn and share knowledge.
