Campus Tech Support
Instructional Technology is supported on this campus through one campus tech, two technology teachers who assist with hardware and software issues and an ITRC and Technology PLC that facilitate integration and professional development.

Future Vision and Direction
Our campus is very lucky in that we have been equipped with a wide range of technology. Our vision for the next three years is to provide staff development so that every teacher feels comfortable integrating all of the resources available in their lessons. We want to see more online learning, paperless student assignments and student driven technology products.

Campus Improvement Plan Alignment
As this is our first year as an incorporated school, our campus CIP is not yet completed. The alignment will be added when it is complete. The following goals and objectives are taken from the Austin ISD District Technology Plan. Campuses will focus on four objectives from Goal 1 and.four objectives from Goal 2.. Campuses may choose to include additional objectives in their Campus Tech Plan. The entire Austin ISD Technology Plan is available for review.

Goal 1: Teaching and Learning
Teaching & Learning focuses on the instructional needs of teachers and the learning needs of students in meeting the vision of technology in education. Objective 1.1: Integrate the Technology Applications TEKS within the foundation curriculum at each grade level.
