Upgrading to Save Time and Money
Other districts across the country are investing in HCI, network upgrades and other tools, such as learning management systems, to help them reduce costs, increase overall efficiency and better hone their efforts to educate students.
Those benefits of cost savings and efficiency — standard concepts for successful businesses — are crucial for school districts.
Administrators not only need to assure stakeholders that they are good stewards of tax dollars, but also must ensure their technology investments are used to enhance learning as intended, rather than hamper it.
That latter goal is one reason why California’s Saugus Union School District invested in software and trainers to help teachers with classroom management and data analysis.
The district’s leaders understand it takes time as well as training for teachers to get comfortable with technology and use it effectively in their classrooms.
The technology, coupled with a bit of business savvy, can help districts guarantee that the focus remains where it should be — on teaching and learning.
