Technology at ACS


MISSION: Our mission is to maintain the infrastructure and design that supports our district technology goals. This mission is grounded in attention to fundamental reform of curriculum, instruction, assessment, professional development, and the organization and management of the school.

VISION: Our vision is to support learning-rich classrooms, and utilize the advantages of networked communication at all levels within the district: student, staff, administration, and community. It is married to the notion of cross-curriculum instruction, team-teaching, student portfolios, learning standards and independent learning. The vision encompasses students as life-long learners and as potential employees. It embraces the empowerment that access to worldwide information promises. It addresses the redundancy of forms and routines, reports and reporting. This Vision opens doors of communication between every combination of student, teacher, parent/guardian, administrator, and corner of the world. Students will be able to discover, create, and learn with tools and skills that the rest of the world will expect them to use. Learning resources will be available for all: equitable access. Teachers continue to have access to colleagues, resources, learning centers, and professional development opportunities; to exponentially increase their awareness of methods, lessons, and opportunities for learning.

1) Improve student achievement of Geometry concepts, as measured by the Geometry Regents.
2) Incorporate the 21st Century learning skills within the classroom.
3) Initiate Professional Development Opportunities related to data driven instruction.
4) Upgrade existing infrastructure and instructional technology in the classroom to better support 21st Century Learning Skills.
