The HPS Technology Department has been given the opportunity by the Superintendent to be at the forefront of the District and lead the culture shift that is necessary to provide our students and teachers the technology to improve teaching and learning. This vision depends greatly on the funding from local, state, federal, and internal district programs to provide the resources to upgrade our schools. The introduction to more mobile devices in the classroom will encourage improvements in Technology Literacy and the integration of Curriculum with Technology. The expansion of the iSchool and other Professional Development initiatives will help us reach our goal of improving the ability of our administrators and teachers to become technologically proficient.
Our Data Specialist team is also working diligently to meet or exceed all state compliance in regards to safety, security, and data retention. The accessibility of new hardware, a secure network and internet access, and the required bandwidth and wireless access to deploy mobile devices is a District-wide goal through 2019. We also plan to reduce the cost of contracted services and the need for multiple servers as we better utilize our internal staffing resources and move towards the virtualization of our servers. Our District website will also continue to evolve by adding more digital resources for our faculty, administrators, and parents.
