Technology in USD #339

Four years ago, the Jefferson County North Board of Education established a Technology Team and charged it with the responsibility for developing a technology plan that would direct this district's efforts in bringing the world of technology to our students.

The team, composed of teachers, administrators, patrons, and a member of the Board accepted that charge and its efforts have resulted in a plan that has served as a guide for the important curriculum and facilities developments that have taken place. A few examples are listed below...

Progress to date:

* All of the computers are networked at the high school

* Network-wide (all computers) access to the Internet available

* Computer network installed in JCN EMS

* Reached a student to computer ratio of 2.5:1

* Developed mini-computer lab in Technology Center encouraged faculty to require use of appropriate technologies in their curricula

* Convert Elementary School into a Technology Center/District Office

* Wireless network access at each campus

* T-1 internet speed at each campus

* Every teacher has a wireless portable computer

* Four mobile labs; each containing 20 wireless portable computers

Plans for the Future:

* Develop a three-faceted technology curriculum

* Continued training for Staff in use of technology

* Development of a four-year Tech Plan that will lead us into the next phase
