Apollo-Ridge School District recognizes the importance of technology in a twenty-first century education, and is committed to supporting learning with a wide array of technological resources.


Every classroom in the district has one or more computers, access to carts of mobile devices, a digital projector and an interactive whiteboard or panel for whole-class instruction.  Wired and wireless high-speed network and Internet access is available throughout all schools.  Video systems throughout the schools foster community and enable students to gain broadcast experience by being part of daily news and announcements.  Mobile and cloud-based technologies are utilized to provide mobility and flexible learning. The district maintains websites for each school, and all students, parents and guardians have access to an online student management system that tracks grading, attendance and academic performance, and facilitates online communications between school and home.  Telecommunications systems connect classrooms and offices, and a voicemail system enables efficient communications.


The Technology and Telecommunications Department is responsible for planning, oversight and support for the instructional and administrative uses of computer, audiovisual and telecommunications systems in Apollo-Ridge School District schools and offices.  Our number one goal is to enable a seamless, dependable technology-rich learning environment.  We provide technology to foster student-centered learning, efficient administrative operations, effective community communications, and 24/7 access to educational resources.
