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.
