Our Technology Vision
As an educational establishment, my vision is that our students will have access to the technology that they need to be skilled problem solvers. I would continue as well as provide professional development for staff to gain knowledge on updated technologies and practices. I would work with the superintendent, school staff, parents and students to share the importance of and developing of a technology plan, which is to secure funding for current and future equipment, including staff development to fit the needs of our school and students. With these oppurtunities, the goal is to provide broad-based experiences to develop individual abilities and aptitudes that lead to lifelong learning, especiallly to be prepared for the 21st Century.
In collaboration with distrcit/school staff, our parent community and local stakeholders, we are committed to research and secure funding and resources to enhance our school/classroom enviroment.
