Technology News and Policies

Our expectations at Pewamo-Westphalia Schools are to prepare all learners for the technology challenges of the future with 22nd Century Objectives; integrate technology into our curriculum, utilizing real-time data and information by accessing greater and more accurate resources; and to meet all learners where they are and how they learn, with the focus on anytime, any place, any path, any pace ideals.

Our hopeful results are these: deeper relationships with students, increased student motivation and engagement, and increased student achievement.  

Please use this page to locate the policies on our student devices and the digital citizenship content we are providing and teaching to our students to help them prepare to be responsible global citizens.
