2021 Technology Levy
The 2021 Technology Levy will replace the current 10-year levy that expires June 30, 2022. The district is seeking to replace the $6.5 million levy and increase the amount by $500,000 for a total $7 million levy that would be in place through June 30, 2032.
Technology is integral in district operations, including networks, internet, phone systems, safety and security, HVAC operations and more. Most importantly, it is a meaningful classroom tool that gives students platforms for collaboration, discovery and creativity. Edina teachers receive ongoing professional development on how to use technology with intentionality to enhance learning and engage students.
Every day in Edina Public Schools, students use digital media technologies to:
- Explore content in interactive, hands-on and engaged approaches for deeper learning and skills development.
- Engage with content through collaboration and participation following multiple pathways.
- Express learning in ways that demonstrate mastery and have the potential to be published to a wider, authentic audience.
- Provide students opportunities to communicate with people across the globe.
- Bring real world education to the classroom, empowering students with critical skills they need to thrive in a rapidly changing, culturally diverse, global society.
- Maximize district resources, including funding, time, space and natural resources.
