At Wilmington Area School District, the use of technology is not only encouraged, it is embraced and has become ubiquitous in the classroom. It is the goal of WASD to lead by example and raise the standard for educational technology.
We use more technology than any surrounding school district because our students deserve a modern education that will prepare them for the 21st century. We accomplished this without increasing costs but instead reallocated funds from outdated programs and services; replacing them with lower-cost technological solutions. We “think outside the box” and bring innovative ideas and methods to reality on every level of technology. Coupled with a superior technology team (powered by Questeq), we lead all surrounding school districts by example.
Secondly, we do not distance ourselves from our teachers or students. Unlike other school districts, the Technology Department of WASD is located in the heart of the High School & Middle School Building and not hidden away among district offices. The WASD Tech Team is devoted to supporting teachers and students, and prefers to be on the “front lines” of technology education. Our “open door” policy welcomes teachers and students to seek assistance at any time at their convenience, not the other way around.
