Innovative Technology Grants
The School District strives to provide innovative and
effective technical resources, tools, and support to its students and
staff. The goal is to create and equip a collaborative learning
community that can work on many levels, from help with the
basics to sophisticated academic programs. The District also
has to properly assess its students and comply with testing and
Overall Responsibilities: The Technology Department supplies and maintains the
hardware, networks, databases, telecommunication systems, and
testing resources that enable the schools to function as
progressive learning environments. The Technology Department is
responsible for regulating access and maintaining account and
data security. Its directors coordinate technical
education for District staff and oversee testing procedures and
Equipment: Each school has at least one computer lab
and portable carts for laptops, Chromebooks and/or iPads.
Effort is made to equip every classroom in
accordance with the teacher's needs. That includes a
large number of enhanced technology classrooms with interactive
Promethean boards or BrightLink projectors.
Software Support and Online Learning: Software applications are carefully chosen to benefit the learning
community. Older students take online courses through the
Idaho Distance Learning Network and are able to earn dual credit
through the College of Southern Idaho. New web-based educational networks help to assess
student needs and improve math and reading skills.
Interactive learning devices enliven the classroom. School
libraries have a management system to keep track of their
resources and share them with others.
Skyward Access and Web Site: We welcome parents and authorized family
members to view student attendance records,
schedules, discipline issues, grades, assignments and progress
reports through Skyward family access. The District also
reaches out to the community through its web site.
The District's technology program will continue to evolve
to best serve the learning community.
