Technology projects identified in the bond program include:
- Instructional delivery devices, such as projectors, interactive television/whiteboards will be installed in classrooms across the district. This will provide teachers with a common ground to share and collaborate with one another through a standard, interactive learning environment. Telephone systems at schools throughout HISD will be updated to ensure that every permanent classroom is equipped with a fully functional telephone. This upgrade is necessary to enhance classroom safety.
- The wireless network at every HISD school will be expanded to provide internet access throughout the campus.
- Outdated network equipment throughout HISD will be upgraded or replaced to ensure that all data traffic travels efficiently within and between all schools and to the internet.
- All HISD schools receive annual funds outside of the bond program that are intended for the purchase of classroom computers and other technology.
