The role of technology at Charlotte Country Day School is to support the
mission of the school, directly addressing each of the School’s key values.
Technology is a vehicle through which diverse information and ideas can be
located, evaluated, applied, and shared in both personal and academic
pursuits. To that end, technology is integrated into the daily life of the
School community through authentic and ethical experiences that promote
learning, communication within and beyond the School community, and
service opportunities that address social, environmental, and global issues.
Our shared goal is to help students and faculty to develop a sense of control
over technology while preparing them to work in diverse teams and to be
technologically literate as they explore issues, challenges and new directions.
We give students and faculty the resources to respond intelligently to
evolving technology here at our school and for their years beyond.
