Welcome to Starpoint Central School District Technology
The Starpoint CSD consists of the Towns of Pendleton, Cambria, Lockport, Wheatfield, and Royalton and is located in the Town of Pendleton. The Starpoint CSD services approximately 5,300 families, 2,850 students, grades in K-12. The area covered is 115 square miles. The Starpoint CSD is a component district of Orleans/Niagara BOCES. The district facilities, located at 4363 Mapleton Road, consist of four schools: Fricano Primary (K-2), Douglas J Regan Intermediate (3-5), Starpoint Middle School (6-8) and Starpoint High School (9-12).
As the New York State Learning Standards continue to have impact, students will be expected to attain higher levels of academic success. We recognize that student achievement is not the only measure of success. Those leaving our school to take their place in the world will be expected to enter the workforce equipped to solve complex problems, function collaboratively with diverse groups, give back to our society, and be prepared to use future technology in meaningful ways.
Therefore, Starpoint CSD has undertaken a dramatic change in how it addresses the learning needs of all students through its planning for and use of technology. The approach to instruction will focus on learning: what do we want our children to know and be able to do? and assessment: how will we know when they are successful? Our plans for the purchase, implementation, and evaluation must reflect our learning goals.
This plan will take our district into the next three years and form a framework by which we will reflect on the learning needs into the next decade. Through yearly monitoring and adjustment, we are confident we will be able to provide the kinds of learning experiences which will help our students live and work in a world that will be dramatically different than the one we know
The District Technology Committee wishes to thank the Board of Education and Dr. Sean Croft, Superintendent of Schools, for their confidence and support. Without their support, this plan would not have been possible.
