Welcome to the Technology Department

Through the use of technology, learning can take place anywhere and at any time in a school setting, the public library or at home. This vision has major implications on how, when and where learning takes place. Students will increasingly take more responsibility for their own education, with the instructional staff guiding their inquiries and reflecting on their process. Technology is not an end or add on, but provides an environment that facilitates teaching and life-long learning.

Our vision for the community of learners is to increase their achievement and develop life-long learning skills through active engagement with informational and technology resources.
