Technology Summary

The Lee County Public School Division continues to commit many resources to the development of an infrastructure to support effective classroom instruction. The system has approximately 2000 networked computers, construction of a Wide-Area Network, and delivery of high speed Internet service to every school.  The use of technology is not a new tool for instruction or administrative purposes in our Lee County schools. Lee County’s technology plan coordinates and ensures ready access to instructional technology. Every day we are reminded of how quickly the world changes and how the changes impact student achievement. Today, our schools must meet the demands existing outside the traditional classroom. The continued upgrades and addition of the latest technological tools for the Lee County schools provides the teachers and students the opportunities to compete in an ever-expanding and changing global economic market throughout the world. The technological educational program in Lee County schools meets the challenge of serving a diverse student population. Our division continues to encourage the development of new instructional strategies, participatory curriculum decisions, and attempts to infuse advanced technology into all content areas. Each school has at least one computer lab and networked computers located in all classrooms. Also, available for use are mobile labs for classroom use and testing purposes.

To meet global challenges, the technology department strives to provide the leadership and support to enable educators to provide learners with equitable access to worldwide information through the state-of-art technologies and networks and meaningful staff development programs. The effective use of technology by the instructional staff will complement more traditional pedagogies to create an environment that better meets the needs of today’s students and to enhance the quality of life for all citizens.
