A vision for technology in Glens Falls City Schools

The Glens Falls City School District is committed to preparing our students to be successful, productive members of a global society. Technology can be used as the tool to develop critical thinking skills, improve communication, and develop life skills critical to every student’s success.

Teachers will take an active role in the planning and implementation of technology into the curriculum. The District will provide ongoing and continuous training for teachers to ensure that they will be successful in integrating technology across all curriculum areas.

The use of technology will also assist in engaging the community and promoting an awareness of the educational mission of the District. Technology can link the classroom with parents and encourage partnerships with community agencies and educational institutions to foster the development of all students.

The District will provide the financial support necessary for the planning and implementation of new technology across the district.

Watch the SAMR Model explained by students:

Our school community believes...

  • Technology should be integrated into the classroom and curriculum as support for instruction, learning, and understanding. Technology should not be a “stand alone” in the classroom.
  • Staff-development is on-going and supportive of technology integration in the classroom.
  • All students will have access to the development of fundamental skills and knowledge of technology.
  • Curriculum will drive the use and integration of technology in the classroom.
  • Technology, as an ever-changing, fluid system, should advance to meet the needs of the students, community, and staff.
