Partnerships, Technology, and Learning.
Duncan, Roy R.; Schlumpf, Jacob F., Jr.
A major goal of the Shoreline School District is to develop partnerships with the community, other community agencies, and businesses. The development of a "Long Range Facilities Utilization Plan" led to a 10-year districtwide modernization program to enhance technology and instruction. Now at its midpoint, the design and development of the program is a significant strand in the fabric of a total district effort to strengthen academic programs and improve the technology/learning process. The following six related elements are described. An integrative fibre optics communications infrastructure is linking the Shoreline Center complex with the districts' 14 schools. High technology hardware and software are being used by administrators, teachers, and students to support instruction. The development of staff training serves to prepare all district employees to use the new technology. The creation of the "Education for Tomorrow...Today" project utilizes a "Classroom of the Future" and serves as a major development and evaluation center. The formulation of significant business partnerships increases access to new technology and offsets costs. The formulation of significant community partnerships provides service to all citizens in the Shoreline area. This includes expanding the scope of the school district in implementing quality of life programs in the community. (RR)
