TSD Technology Information for Families & Students

Technology in the Tahoma School District 

In the Tahoma School District (TSD), technology is leveraged and prioritized as a strategic investment to support empowered and engaging learning and teaching, and help ensure all students gain the Future Ready Skills necessary in order to leave our system with a valued, viable, and personalized plan for lifelong success. 

Technology use is prioritized where it can accelerate and improve student learning. To ensure authentic and value-added integration, we employ the Triple E Framework (Engage, Enhance, Extend) developed at the University of Michigan to  help teachers and systems incorporate technology tools to meet instructional goals.  

Our technology model, represented by the image the left, emphasizes that technology is used in our district to support our three essential outcomes: Empowered Learning, Future Ready Skills, and the Future Ready Plan. The core values of Equity, Sustainability, and Access guide decision-making and priority setting. 

We want all students to have the experiences, opportunities, and tools necessary to attain both our instructional goals and their own aspirations.
