South Butler County School District 2018 – 2021 Comprehensive Plan

Operational Services

 

The Operational Services Subcommittee focused on district technology and strategies to improve technologies to support student achievement.

The operational services of the school district link our physical resources to improved learning in each classroom.  South Butler County School District school buildings and athletic facilities are well-kept and are designed to keep the focus of the educational program on teaching and learning in classrooms.  Quality resources are available to students within safe classrooms that are bright, clean, and designed with the learning needs of each student throughout the District. 

The Operational Services Subcommittee focused primarily upon maintaining and improving District technology with a reliable network designed to support ongoing enhancements with teaching and learning.  Technology is designed to connect students to resources beyond the walls of the classroom and academic development.  District technology needs continue to change and the focus is to build scalable technologies that grow with the evolving needs of South Butler County School District students.
