HFCSD is committed to using technology to support learning in our school and homes by building a community of learners that extends beyond the physical spaces of our buildings. Our role is to provide guidance, oversight and support to successfully integrate technology into all aspects of teaching and learning.
As outlined in The Instructional Technology Plan below, this plan has implications for shifting the educational system and preparing students with the necessary technological skills for higher ed and employment. Through these supports and resources, the district will continue to deepen teachers’ and administrators’ understandings of the uses of technology to support learning and achievement. Under this vision of technology being an integral component to how we teach and learn, the goals we have outlined as a committee are consistent with and fully support current research of the 14 critical elements necessary to effectively leverage technology for learning.
Instructional Technology Plan
Every three years, school districts are required to submit an Instructional Technology Plan. This plan serves as a guiding document for the integration of technology throughout the district. The attached plan below outlines the three goals for the 2018-2021 plan. We encourage anyone interested in being part of this committee to contact us to learn more.
Smart Schools Plan
The Smart Schools Investment Plan was approved by voters in a statewide referendum in November 2014. The vote authorized the issuance of $2 billion to finance improved educational technology and infrastructure. A total of $2,189,224 was allocated to HFCSD.
