Newton CSD Technology Plan


Newton Community School District’s Technology Plan is based on the belief that technology is a skill used by all stakeholders in our schools. To that end, the Newton schools continually strive to deliver 21st Century technology learning opportunities that foster academic excellence leading to global collaboration, digital citizenship and a love of learning. All members of our learning community will take an active role in creating and sustaining a technology rich environment.

Mission Statement

Newton Community Schools is committed to empower staff and students to effectively integrate technology to explore, expand, and enhance learning in a global society in order to support the district mission of doing whatever it takes to insure that all students learn to think, innovate, and succeed.


The Technology Committee has identified several goals that are required in order to accomplish our mission statement. These are goals that every student and staff member will continuously work towards on a daily basis. 

These goals have been identified as the essential building blocks of successfully preparing our students and staff for life in the 21st century:

  • Develop technology use as a skill set rather than a tool for students and staff members.
  • Promote a positive and engaging Technology environment where students and staff feel comfortable in learning new technologies.
  • Provide technology ready classroom.
  • Provide ongoing training for teachers and staff.
  • Infuse technology into everyday use for students and staff.
