It’s time for a strategic refresh!
The district’s community-developed Strategic Plan is now entering its third year. The document is still a good one, reflective of our collective values and priorities while providing a roadmap to ensure graduates are prepared for work and life.
There is one area, however, that the superintendent and school board would like to focus on to make sure schools are aligned with current teaching and industry best practices: Technology. The Technology Learning Benchmark in our Strategic Plans says: “Tech-savvy, teach-literate: Each student will achieve the state-level technology standards and will graduate as a tech-savvy, tech-literate citizen connected to the real world.”
We are a region that leads the world in technology, and just like in that industry, we have to be very cognizant about staying up to date in providing our scholars with the most modern digital resources that will support their success. Technology is both a powerful tool for teaching as well as a critical skill set for 21st-century careers. Our graduates should not be only technology users, but technology innovators.
Please join Superintendent Nancy Coogan at one of these upcoming strategic-refresh meetings as we expand the technology-benchmark goal for students and look for ways to interweave technology expectations into our educational strategies and indicators of process.
