The school district utilizes technology in a full range of academic programs and extracurricular activities.

All 26 DD2 schools are wireless and connected by a high-speed wide area network monitored and regulated by ETS to ensure safe and secure technology integration. Students and staff have full-time internet access in classrooms and libraries as well as capabilities to access the internet during distance learning opportunities. All teachers have personal computing devices and all classrooms are equipped with interactive whiteboards. 


Technology Services is responsible for all automated, computerized, and electronic information handling throughout the district. We manage all the functions of voice and electronic communications, as well as audio and video technologies. In addition, we provide support for all district supported systems and hardware. We employ a centralized management of technology services that includes both instructional and operational technologies.
