There are high expectations for student achievement from the district, the parents, and the community. In the 21st century, technology is going to play a major role in making these expectations become realities. Our district is committed to making technology an integral part of every student's education. We believe that for our students to be successful in tomorrow's world they must not only understand technology but also possess the ability to utilize this technology in a changing world.
Our goal is the true integration of technology into the teaching/learning process. School leaders are requesting a sound educational direction for technology. This demand is being met with innovative equipment and dedicated teacher training.
We are passionately committed to the positive influence of current and future technologies through continuous research, successful integration, and unparalleled support of high quality hardware and software for HISD.
To provide our students, staff, and community leading edge technology services..
