Strategic Technology Plan  
 

Strategic Technology Plan 2009-2012 Executive Summary
    The International Independent School is committed to fostering intellectual exploration, individual growth and social responsibility in our students' lifelong pursuit of scholarship, integrity, community and opportunity. International Independent envisions its students as global citizens and leaders in the 21st century. The mission of technology is to support the broader mission of the school.

   To prepare students for the unprecedented opportunities that await citizens of the 21st century, International Independent recognizes that a thorough understanding of technology is essential for success. Educational technology, thoughtfully and appropriately applied, will enhance not only the learning experiences of all students but also the professional growth of International Independent’s faculty and staff. In the interest of having students take ownership of their education, technological skill-building will be integrated into the curriculum. The School believes that full and equitable access to technological resources, available anytime and anywhere, must be a high priority for International Independent students, faculty and staff. The Strategic Technology Plan envisions a faculty that intellectually engages students through "appropriate integration and applications of technology." International Independent committed to providing faculty with quality resources to support this goal.

    Similarly, the management of the International Independent School requires the same access to technology and support to promote and enhance student activities, admission services, development services, financial services, communication, and facilities management. As stewards of International Independent’s resources, we recognize that our investment in technological resources will bring about long-term benefits to the community improving productivity and allowing for the better distribution and conservation of the school's financial resources.
