"Effective integration of technology is achieved when students are able to select technology tools to help them obtain information in a timely manner, analyze and synthesize the information, and present it professionally. The technology should become an integral part of how the classroom functions -- as accessible as all other classroom tools."

Technology Plan

The Rhinebeck Central School District meets the changing needs of our community with courageous programming consistent with State standards and mindful of best learning practices. Each student enjoys equality of access in an enriching environment allowing for mastery of skills and knowledge necessary to earn a high school diploma. We create and encourage opportunities for all graduates to become:

  • Self-directed learners, who use positive core values to create a positive vision for themselves and their future, set priorities, and achievable goals, create options for themselves, monitor and evaluate their progress, and assume responsibility for their actions.
  • Collaborative workers, who use effective leadership and group skills to develop and manage interpersonal relationships within culturally and organizationally diverse settings.
  • Complex thinkers, who identify, access, integrate, and use available resources and information to reason, make decisions, and solve complex problems in a variety of contexts.
  • Community contributors, who contribute their time, energies, and talents to improving the welfare of others and the quality of life in their diverse communities.
  • Quality producers, who create intellectual, artistic, practical, and physical products which reflect originality, high standards, and the use of appropriate advanced technologies.
  • Ethical decision-makers, who exemplify the principles of trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, integrity, fairness, caring and citizenship.
