Satsuma City Schools uses instructional technology as one way of enhancing the mission to provide a creative, rigorous, and technology-rich academic environment which encourages students to become independent, analytical, and self-motivated learners who can make positive, caring, and ethical contributions to the community. Excellence in education requires that technology is seamlessly integrated throughout the education program. From Kindergarten, students are exposed to various technologies and it is used daily in instruction by both students and teachers, focusing on the skills that will equip today's learners for tomorrow's world of work. Technology in Satsuma City Schools is not just used for instruction. From our fire and air conditioning controllers, from accounting to technology support, from online registration to online payment, every department in our school system uses technology to work more effectively and efficiently.
Parents who do not want their child to set up an account on any of the following sites, must notify the school in writing. Generally, students will only set up accounts when directed to do so by their teacher or because they find the site useful in completing a school assignment.
Teachers and parents should note that some sites do not allow children under the age of 13 to create accounts regardless of parental permission.
You can see the list of sites that have already been approved for use here.
