District and Site Based Technology in Swansea

Technology is an integral component of educating our students in the 21st Century. The goal of the Swansea Technology Department is to create and support technology-rich learning environments for the students of Swansea. The department is dedicated to supporting the district vision, to serve and provide the instructional techniques that foster the 21st-century skills and knowledge our students will need through the seamless implementation and integration of technology.

The Technology Department plans, implements and maintains the network infrastructure for the six schools located in the Swansea School District. In addition, the department assists teachers in integrating technology tools into the curriculum. Our department believes that technology is a large component of thoughtful lesson design and a powerful tool for learning.
