The Royal Independent School District is dedicated to delivering the best education that all of its students can achieve. With the significant developments and breakthroughs in technology, education will be greatly enhanced by a school district that is prepared to utilize those advancements. The more times that a student is challenged while in the classroom, the better the education that is provided. Technology, while mimicking many other venues outside of education, will only serve to help our faculty to offer those challenges to our students. With the measuring tools that are available to our district, new technologies will allow our staff greater opportunities to reach out to all students, no matter what their learning style may be, and hopefully challenge all students.
Long Range Technology Plans can only be effective if the technology that is being planned for is current. Unfortunately for planning committees, technology is being rewritten as this plan is being made. It is the decision of this committee to offer a one year plan, with the expectations that it is a living document. It will be reviewed a minimum of two times this next year in an effort to strive and keep our district current with the most up to date technologies available to school districts. Just as we are eager to try new technologies in our classrooms, we will not hesitate to remove anything that is not showing itself to be of merit. If necessary, we will submit a new plan every year, in order to maximize the strengths of the technology available at that time.
Lastly, we want to stress, that technology is not in addition to other classes, or in place of other classes, but rather along with other strategies that have already proven themselves to be effective. Royal I.S.D. desires to integrate technology into our district on all levels. It is our intentions to supply every area of our district with the technologies that will help our staff to accomplish our one goal, of giving our students the best education that they can achieve.
