Providing 21st Century learning and mobility for educators by providing laptops and using the Microsoft Office 365 platform

The focus of the Salt Lake City School District is 'Excellence and Equity: Every Student, Every Classroom, Every Day'. Every task or program we undertake is to close achievement gaps and promote student academic achievement. For each of the three years and in conjunction with the Digital Teaching and Learning Grant, Salt Lake City School District will help teachers become more proficient in the use of technology tools such as Microsoft Office 365 and increase electronic collaboration between teachers and students. In addition, as part of the Salt Lake City School District Student Achievement Plan, our desire is to strengthen our Professional Learning Communities. To do this, we will provide our teachers with laptops that will help them collaborate with colleagues and make data driven decision to increase student achievement.
