The district's approach to technology is that applications of new technology need to be guided by curriculum requirements as well as student needs. In each elementary school there is a computer lab equipped with 30 networked 21.5 inch flat-screen iMac computers and staffed by a full-time tech person who has a high level of proficiency in technology.
A sequential list of student technology goals has been developed which includes objectives in keyboarding, personal productivity, information processing, basic skills support, curriculum enrichment, fine arts applications, career and occupational possibilities and technology literacy. As they progress through the elementary years, children learn how to use simulations and problem-solving software, create and use slide shows, incorporate the use of graphics into their presentations, manipulate data bases, use information from a spreadsheet, and use peripherals such as the Promethean Board, ActiVote, ActiView, iPads, and the digital / video camera. Internet access became available for the first time with the advent of the 1999-2000 school year.
