Computer Services Department

The Computer Services Department is responsible for the maintenance, coordination and implementation of all educational, library/media, administrative and business technologies for the district. Our main goal is to see the successful integration of technology in all facets of education and to ensure our students achieve technology literacy. These goals are aligned with our district’s Technology Plan.

Through the use of various technologies, teachers are able to facilitate individual support for our students, as well as enhance learning through the use of technology. With the implementation of new administrative technologies, our administrators are able to access and analyze student data to efficiently steer the educational progress of our school community.

Things are a little different for today’s preteens and teens. In fact, many children are posting their innermost thoughts right on the Internet on such social networking websites as Facebook, MySpace.com and Xanga.com. As a parent, you’ll want to be aware of these sites. Even though students are blocked
from accessing them on Schuylerville’s campus computers, they can still get to the sites from other computers with Internet access. [READ MORE]
