The Denton Independent School District is focused on using technology to inspire 21st century educational skills in all of our students today. Denton ISD is among the state’s leaders in incorporating technology in and out of the classroom for students and staff, ensuring that they have the tools necessary to succeed.
Under the direction of Technology Information Officer Ernie Stripling, Denton ISD has been recognized as one of the top technologically advanced school districts in the nation by Center for Digital Education. The district takes pride in its technology and works with several nationally-known partners to bring the latest instruments and software to the hands of our students, educators and families.
The technology division's three departments – data processing, instructional technology, and network services – provide a seamless work flow that allows for information to be delivered to users as effortlessly as possible. Denton ISD staff is able to stream media, use distance learning and apply current web tools on a regular basis, while district families can check student grades, look at attendance records and register for the upcoming school year online.
Making sure our students’ educational experience is enhanced through the use of technology is something the district, and its technology department, strive for every day. Denton ISD understands that as technology evolves, our students, teachers and staff must have the means to evolve too. ?xml:namespace>
