Scarsdale Technology Plan
The Scarsdale School District has a longstanding, continuous commitment to providing our students with an outstanding education. To that end, we seek to achieve and maintain best practices in using technology to support the educational experiences of all students. The use of technology should be seamlessly integrated into the curriculum and teaching.
We believe that all members of the school community should be able to:
- Use appropriate technology as a tool for teaching, learning, and assessment
- Have access to appropriate desktop and mobile technology throughout the District, including classrooms, labs, libraries, and offices
- Use technology to empower learners by giving them tools for creating, communicating, and collaborating
- Use technology to allow all users to curate information and solve problems
- Recognize the ethical and legal responsibilities and opportunities of learning and working in an increasingly interconnected community
In order to realize this vision, we must continually respond to changes in the technology landscape by maintaining a robust infrastructure, providing technical and financial support for the use of technology in our schools, investing in professional development for all staff, and providing a wide variety of opportunities for all students to use technology to enhance their learning.
