Harrisonville's Philosophy Statement
The mission of Harrisonville Schools is to achieve excellence in education. The purpose of the Harrisonville School District, in partnership with parents and community, is to ensure that ALL students are college and career ready when they graduate from our district. This begins at the preschool level and runs throughout the students' educational experience. All that we do and all decisions made should be based on the premise All goals, objectives and decisions will be based on this purpose. Our students deserve and we should demand nothing less.
In comparison to the philosophy statement above, I was not able to find any neighboring schools that had anything in regards to integrating technology in their philosophy statement. I did, however, come across a school in Massachusetts that embodies many forms of technology integration.
McCann's Technical School's Philosophy Statement
The mission of McCann Technical School is to graduate technically skilled, academically prepared, and socially responsible individuals ready to meet the challenges of the 21st century. McCann Technical School is committed to being the leader of quality technical education and academic achievement in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.
I will utilize technology in order to enhance my student's motivation and engagement. I pledge to be open to new possibilities in regards to technology integration. I pledge to utilize technology in order to provide differentiated instruction on a daily basis to the best of my knowledge and abilities. Not only do I intend to educate my students, but I intend for them to educate me as well, especially in regards to technology. I pledge to do my best in order to prepare my students for their collegiate and professional career. I will foster communication, collaboration, critical thinking, and creativity in my classroom each day. At the conclusion of each school year, my hope is that I will have prepared my students for the years to come.
