Mission & Vision 

Mission & Vision 

As stated in our technology mission, Spreckels Union School District Technology Department strives to: 
  • Ensure that all staff and students have access to the appropriate tools and technology
Our vision is that technology will be used across the district in new and exciting ways to meet the needs of all our students and enhance classroom instruction and educational outcomes. SUSD will strive to use the most up-to-date technology tools in order to: 
  • design learning environments that will reach the needs of diverse learners
  • gauge and monitor students' individual levels of achievement, using formative assessments to make decisions about programs and supports for student learning
  • model and encourage collaboration between and among students, teachers, administrators, parents and the community 
In classrooms, teachers will be confident and knowledgeable about the range of technology that can assist them in making effective choices in designing learning experiences. Supported by accessible technology and professional development, teachers will develop and share authentic and engaging activities. In this creative and collaborative environment teachers will use technology to: 
  • provide options that match learning experiences to the individual learner 
  • promote the development of higher-order thinking and problem solving skills
  • transform learning tasks to authentic learning experiences 
We believe: 
  • Technology allows us to better serve the diverse needs of our students 
  • Skillful use of technology supports the development of processing skills such as flexibility, adaptability, critical thinking, problem-solving, communication, and collaboration which are essential to success in our rapidly changing information age
  • Our schools must prepare students to be lifelong learners who are responsible for their own learning, skilled in accessing and processing information, confident in using technological tools, able to solve complex problems, capable of being creative and innovative, and able to communicate locally, nationally, and globally. 
In order to achieve this we will utilize several edeucational applications for currlculum and supplemental materials. All these materials have been vetted for student safety and privacy. A list of these tools can be found below:
