Age-appropriate technology will be infused to continually improve the teaching and learning process. Students will use a variety of research tools to access, evaluate, and effectively apply information to authentic tasks. By applying 21st Century Skills and improving technological and digital literacy, students will better understand their role in the local and global community. Students and staff will be responsible and ethical digital citizens.

Stafford is committed to the development of technology competencies across all content areas and grade levels, aligned with national ISTE standards.

Stafford recognizes the value of technology and strives to maintain and upgrade a robust and functional infrastructure to provide a rich educational experience for all. The district will continually promote communication and collaboration through the effective use of technology. Technology brings the world to students and empowers students to celebrate and share their learning with the world.
