• Assistive Technology

    The effective integration of technology into curriculum-oriented efforts may require support and assistance. Assistive technology is incorporated into the instructional setting in such a way that education is facilitated without calling undue attention to the technology being used, or to its user.  An assistive technology strategy bank is maintained by the district’s Special Services Department to assist educators with examples of methods and ideas, and accommodations are made for students for whom assistive technology has been determined to be necessary.  Each student’s individualized education program is consistent with academic program, district and assistive technology guidelines. Appropriate staff training is provided for teachers responsible for students requiring adaptive resources, and in class support is offered by building technology specialists.
