Instructional Technology

The Hampton Bays Union Free School District recognizes the increasing need to develop knowledge; to be able to access, understand, and communicate information; and is committed to the implementation and effective use of technology in our schools.

Student fluency in technological tools is critical in this age of information. The Hampton Bays Public Schools is committed to providing students with skills that will be useful to them in their pursuit of lifetime goals at work and in their personal lives.

Our instructional technology plan considers the importance of technology in the learning process and builds upon the districts current resources to develop college and career ready students.  The plan provides for the integration of technology into students’ everyday lives and also for the management of our Informational Technology (IT) Department.  The Learning Community impacted by this plan includes teachers, staff, students, families, and community.
