Haywood County Schools has a long-standing tradition of aggressive and progressive technology adoption. Our primary purpose is to support the Haywood County Schools vision of preparing our students to be successful, lifelong learners and productive members of our community and society as a whole. We hope to help educate our students for their future, not our past, using the best technological tools that are available. Technology has given us the tools to individualize instruction and focus on the strengths and weaknesses of a particular student or class.

Our primary focus will be to augment teaching styles using these tools to more effectively take advantage of the different learning styles presented by students in our classrooms. In order to achieve this, we will provide professional development opportunities closely integrated with individual school improvement plans in a variety of formats from one-on-one just in time support to a series of long range, on-going research based workshops. We will, of course, strive to maintain and expand the resources required to support our efforts by promoting innovation in the classroom, supporting those teachers who recognize the potential of technological tools, and funding projects that are sustainable across the district while maintaining essential services for all. As we prepare our students to survive in the 21st century, we must challenge ourselves to rise above what we have been taught and adapt our teachings to capitalize on current technology, reflect future trends, and secure our place in a global economy. In addition we must empower our staff and students to be successful collaborators in a global education system.
