District Vision for Technology Use
The Garvey School District is dedicated to ensuring that all students become successful, lifelong learners. Recognizing the important role of technology in achieving this mission, the vision for technology in the Garvey School District focuses on four areas. Technology will be used to:
- Enhance students’ attainment of grade level standards.
- Enhance productivity of staff and administration.
- Contribute to management efficiency.
- Increase communication with all stakeholders.
The Garvey School District Technology Plan contains clear outcomes to be attained in three years as a result of technology use. These are as follows:
Student Outcomes: Students will meet or exceed state grade level standards in language arts, mathematics, history/social science and science and will demonstrate their skills and knowledge using the appropriate technology.
Staff Outcomes: Staff will integrate technology into their instructional and administrative practices, utilize technology to work more efficiently and access the most current student achievement data to improve instruction.
Technology Outcomes: Staff will have equitable access to reliable, up-to-date technology to ensure that student and staff outcomes are met.
Funding/Budget Outcomes: The district will commit adequate resources (as available) to purchase and support up-to-date technology to ensure that student and staff outcomes are met.
Monitoring/Assessment Outcomes: The district will conduct on-going, formative monitoring and assessment to ensure that activities and timelines are met. Yearly summative monitoring and assessment will occur to ensure that all outcomes are met.
