Equipping students in the twenty-first century
Education in the twenty-first century demands a practical, forward-thinking understanding of technology and a cooperative approach to integrating technology with the student’s home, classroom, and various student programs.
At Vandalia-Butler City Schools, teachers and students benefit from a curriculum deployment that is supported by a Technology Department infused with practical, private-sector experience.
Along with supporting the day-to-day business operations of the district, the Technology Department answers the technology goals of the curriculum agenda, supports the individual classroom needs of teachers, assists students with connecting their own devices to the learning systems, and maintains a sustainable operation with a low total cost of ownership.
The Technology Department also participates in alternative funds sourcing (such as E-Rate), new technology testing, staff training through District professional development, and even in-classroom instruction at the high school relative to the Applied Technology course.
