1_1 Technology Program

Hudson Public Schools will implement a 1:1 Technology program starting in fall of the 2017-2018 school year. We believe technology should be used as a dynamic tool enhancing the teaching and learning environment as we prepare our students to be continuous learners and innovative, knowledgeable, and contributing members in the community. Technology needs to be functional and available when and where it’s needed in order to properly and effectively support and enhance critical thinking, creativity, collaboration, and communication for all stakeholders in the classroom.  

Our 1:1 Technology initiative will take approximately three years to reach all grade levels. The roll out will mean different things to different schools. Below is a tentative three year plan.
