The Hatboro-Horsham School District has a long history of technology use and innovation. In 1996, the School Board allocated funds to support a three-year plan for the acquisition, implementation, and infusion of technology into the school district. The initial goal of the plan was to install a district infrastructure to support data, voice, and video communications.
In 2001, the district was selected as one of six finalists in the Digital School District grant competition, a statewide competition designed to select and fund new educational models enabled by technology. Recently, the district was awarded a $278,126 grant from the state Department of Education as part of its Classrooms for the Future initiative, which was designed to promote the integration of technology into high school classrooms.
Today, continual effort is being made at all levels to integrate technology into the curriculum and to make effective use of technology innovation in our schools.
