|BPS Technology Mission Statement|
|Bedford Public Schools utilizes technology to provide opportunities for Bedford students and staff to explore, gather, evaluate, manage, create, and communicate information in an ethical manner as we strive to meet the challenges of a global society.|
|BPS Technology Accomplishments|
|In 1997, voters approved the first Monroe County Technology Enhancement Millage which helped to launch Bedford Public Schools into a new digital era. It provided the initial infrastructure and hardware to fully connect all of our facilities to the Internet. Our local and wide area network were created, email capability was extended|
|to staff, and student computer labs were
established in all of our schools.
Voters approved our efforts to continue integrating technology into our schools with the successful renewal of the tech millage in 2001, and again, in 2006. Over the last decade, millions of technology dollars have been invested in our school district to begin to prepare our students for a future that is decidedly different from our collective industrial past.
Our District maintains over 1,800 computers for use by our 5,700 users. Recent initiatives paid for by the technology millage include:
|BPS Technology Future Plans|
Installation of LCD projectors in all classrooms to enable easy viewing from anywhere in the room. Projectors are also prerequisites for future installations of document cameras, smartboards, etc...
|How are Bedford Students using Technology?|
|Students use mobile, wireless, rolling labs giving expanded access across the school building for anytime anywhere learning.|
