Welcome to Technology!
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.
Protecting student data is important to Satsuma City Schools. Consequently, we are one of only two schools in Alabama that have received the CoSN TLE seal indicating that we are a Trusted Learning Environment. We are committed to being a good custodian of student data—taking all reasonable and appropriate countermeasures in ensuring data confidentiality, integrity and availability. In accordance with guidelines set forth by the Alabama State Department of Education, Satsuma City Schools has developed a data governance plan. A copy of this plan is available here.
