USD 453 Philosophy and Technology Integration Plan

My current High School's Technology Vision Statement:

- The Leavenworth School District is committed to providing educational technology that will enable our students and staff to meet the changing needs of our technologically-based society. Students and staff will be proficient in using meaningful technology in order to create a community of learners who have the ability to access, process and effectively use technological resources present in our modern world.

1. The primary purpose of technology in USD 453 will be to support the teaching and learning process by integrating technology into the curriculum in all classrooms across the district.

2. Technology will facilitate and improve communication.

3. Technology will enable students and staff to access, retrieve, interpret, and evaluate information.
