In Dansville CSD we aspire always to be Leaders in Technology for Learning. We constantly strive to make sure our students and staff are empowered to adapt to our rapidly changing society, and to ensure that all are able to create, access, exchange, and and analyze information. Through use of SMART Bond funds and careful budgeting, we have been able to establish, maintain and expand our 1:1 learning environment. Our goals in technology for 2018-2019 are:
- Promote STEM by integrating instructional technology with urriculum, pedagogy, and assessment to foster critical thinking and real world problem solving.
- Align District Instructional Technology Curriculum to ISTE Standards and develop grade level guidelines
- Create a positive school culture that supports safe and responsible technology use through continued and enhanced Digital Citizenship curriculum PK-12.
- Maintain and support DCS PK-12 1:1 device environment, robust network, and all supporting equipment and software
