Our students will leave Byron to live and work in a complex economy. We are preparing them for a workplace and a home that is technologically oriented, which will demand workers and parents who can use higher-order thinking skills. Jobs and life, in general, will require people who can solve problems, understand complex terminology, communicate clearly, and make sense out of rapidly changing information. Life itself will demand higher levels of literacy in all areas.
Online Tools and Resources
Byron Public Schools is committed to high quality instruction with the use of technology in order to meet the needs of all of our students. Web-based learning resources are increasingly being used to engage students and improve student learning outcomes. Technology vendors and software are utilized to support work as we help all students develop the skills necessary to succeed in an ever-changing world.
New tools arise every day. We continually evaluate technology tools to ensure they are appropriate and safe for our students’ ages, grade levels, and are relevant to their learning. Please reference our inventory of our curriculum, testing, and assessment tools, which includes an outline of the student data elements within each tool: Byron Schools Online Inventory and Resources. This list is maintained and communicated annually to all families at the start of the school year. If you have any questions about Byron's digital tools, please reach out to the Director of Information and Learning Technology, Jen Hegna or Director of Curriculum Instruction and Assessment - Jessica Denter.
