Use of Technology

In each of our schools, technology is a primary tool to facilitate instruction and these tools have a positive impact on student learning. Technology also allows our school to communicate effectively with parents through a variety of innovative means. We also use various district software applications for student intervention as we continue to develop Response to Intervention (RTI) systems in our school.

We use the following software applications for this work:

  • Blackboard/Edline websites: Contains teacher instructional materials and guidelines; communication for parents, and student access to instructional materials.
  • STAR ­Reading and Math Assessments: Diagnostic assessments to provided benchmark indicators on student performance in reading and math.
  • PerformancePLUS: Repository for all state, district, and building assessment data; data available to analyze student performance by school teams.
  • Blackboard Connect: Communication tool to inform parents on important school information and student learning events.
