The role of the Technology Department in the Upper St. Clair School District is to provide and support utilization of resources which will enhance the teaching/learning process, strengthen communication, and improve the efficiency of operations.
Raymond Berrott, director of technology, has been with the district since 1996. With the help of staff members Erin Walker, Susan Lovett, Paul Jaglowski, Todd West, Michael Binkley, and Anthony Marino, the department has made great strides during the past several years.
The Technology Department is determined to carefully plan for and manage the acquisition and implementation of technology to ensure that it will support the curriculum and the needs of students, teachers, and administrators. All classrooms have access to the district's high-speed wide area network and online interactive resources so that both staff and students may extend learning and communications opportunities beyond the walls of the classrooms - virtually to the entire world. The district offers training experiences so that all staff members may enhance their skills to apply technology to job responsibilities.
The district's vision for integrating technology into daily activities in the schools includes incorporating the use of appropriate hardware and software throughout every area of the curriculum. Instead of studying computer science as an end in itself, technology resources are used as teaching and learning tools in each subject.
