The vision for Technology at Sherburne-Earlville Central School District is to provide the tools, training, and support necessary to create a district-wide culture in which all students, staff, and administration successfully develop and use critical thinking, collaboration, internet literacy, innovation, and technological fluency skills in their work and learning environments.
The Sherburne-Earlville Central School District realizes that integrating technology into the everyday curriculum can be a great tool to inspire creative, collaborative, collective and efficient learning for students and staff. Incorporating technology into the classroom also will help prepare students who plan to attend higher education or enter the workforce after their high school careers.
Instructional Technology Integration Teams
Technology Planning, Support, and Instructional Integration at the Sherburne-Earlville Central School District is supported by the South Central Regional Information Center (SCRIC) and Broome-Tioga BOCES Instructional Technology Integration Teams. These teams make up four major focus areas for technology: Planning, Support, Professional Development, and Data Management.
Technology Planning Leadership provides support for building and maintaining a healthy school district digital ecosystem and to create a vision for how technology will support the district’s strategic and operational goals.
SECSD works with a team of Instructional Technology Integration Specialists from Broome-Tioga BOCES and DCMO BOCES to help staff learn new technologies and successfully implement their use in the classroom.
Technology support is made up of a centralized Service Desk, PC/LAN field technicians, network specialist and engineers, and IT Project Coordinators. SCRIC field-support technicians and an IT Project Coordinator are onsite to support all SECSD buildings. Field-support technicians implement, support, and maintain all workstations, laptops, iPads, and Chromebooks, printers, scanners and other peripherals. Technicians also support the districts wired and wireless networks.
The Managed Data Service provides comprehensive support for select federal and state reporting, as well as support and training for data-related activities such as data integration between student management, special education, financial, and cafeteria systems.
