MLTI Goals

One goal of the Madawaska School Department is to provide the tools needed for our students and staff to be among the best.  The school department has over 500 computers performing a wide variety of functions.

The school department has technology to each of our K-12th grade students.  Every student will have wireless internet access from anywhere in the building. By putting these tools in the hands of their students, the school will be helping develop skills for the 21st century job market.

BrightBytes recently completed an analysis of survey data from the past 6 years in the State of Maine.  Through this analysis, they determined that the Madawaska School Department ranks in the Top 20 schools in the state with respect to the impact that technology is having in the classroom.   This is a sign of the positive support that is being brought forward by the school committee and administration as well as the classroom teachers who are implementing it.
