Technology

Capistrano Unified works to improve teaching and learning through the meaningful use of technology in its schools. Students should be technologically empowered, life-long learners who are prepared to enter the workforce. The following principles guide the technology program:

 

  • Technology is a tool which supports and develops communication of ideas, problem solving, critical thinking, and collaborative work skills supporting the Common Core State Standards.
  • The use of technology encourages active, independent, life-long learning.
  • Teachers must be supported in their use of technology with continuous staff development, coaching and technical assistance.


The District strives to provide all students with access to current technology which is essential for meeting the requirements of the Common Core State Standards as well as preparing students for success on the Smarter Balanced Assessments. The District has 1:1 classroom initiatives underway and Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) programs available where our local parent support groups have partnered with schools to provide increased access. With the fundraising support of our dedicated Parent Teacher Associations, coupled with local partners, foundations and District grants, technology enhancements are made possible, as well as ongoing professional development.

 

For more information, contact your child’s school. The District’s policy on student use of technology and Internet safety is provided in the Annual Parent Notice, as required by state law.
