The Technology Fund was established to raise funds for technology advancement needs throughout the district. As of Fall 2010, there are now sixty-four (64) SMART Boards in our schools.
In 2011-2012 our efforts include:
STEM Initiatives (Science, Technology, Engineering & Math) including Project Lead the Way (PLTW)
SMART Boards and Interactive Classroom Packages
Computers and software to support curricular enrichment
With a proposed reductions in the budget for the 2012-2013 school year, the school district will be relying on the Technology Fund more than ever to help maintain the excellence that is synonymous with MTSD.
