Technical Support Services
Dedicated technical support personnel are available during the school's working hours and on Saturdays. and Holidays to provide technical support services. We use an online trouble ticket system to support issues that can wait in queue.
IT Curriculum and Professional Development
Rapid changes in technology are continuously challenging teachers and tech integrators to meet high expectations in 21st century teaching standards. Three technology integrators, one at each section/developmental level, are available for co-planning, coaching, and co-teaching to integrate technology into classroom learning.
We treat digital citizenship as the core of our tech integration vision. Responsible use policies provide students and staff with the guidelines for safe and ethical use of technology systems in the school. Rather than block or monitor specific sites, we aim to educate the community in appropriate Internet use and filter only categories of sites that have inappropriate or offensive material with no practical educational value.
