Welcome to the WCS Technology Department
Our mission and main focus is to provide modern, high quality, reliable and safe digital learning environments for our students, teachers and staff. As technology continues to increase in importance in the way we deliver instruction and in our everyday lives, we must provide the infrastructure, hardware and resources to ensure our students and staff have what they need to be successful.
The technology department consists of 5 full-time technical staff members, including a Help Desk which provides daily face-to-face and phone support to all of our schools. Our schools are each staffed with Instructional Technology Facilitators, working with students and teachers to transform teaching and learning.
For the 2017-18 school year, our 1:1 mobile computing device for students will be a Lenovo N23 Chromebook
Please note that we will issue a protective drop-in sleeve with each device, for students grades 8-12.
We will not be issuing backpacks to students.
