Technology is an essential instructional tool that enriches the educational experience in the classroom. Technology enhances the outstanding programs in the Olathe Public Schools by improving learning opportunities and providing students with the skills they need for the future. Currently, the district uses a variety of forms of media in classrooms including desktops, laptops, tablets and digital classroom tools. The district’s goal is to provide great student access to technology to better prepare students for the global world.
This bond would provide the district with the ability to replace and upgrade student devices, upgrade audio/visual equipment in classrooms districtwide, upgrade telecommunications, maintain support applications, provide technology to support new construction projects, continue the district’s device foundation, and upgrade infrastructure and network hardware.
The bond election would help the district make vital improvements to facilities in order to take care of that which it has been entrusted. Some of these important improvements include upgrading and replacing aged HVAC systems, taking care of exterior needs including masonry and replacement of aged windows and doors, replacing aged lighting fixtures, ceilings, and improving specialized instructional space.
