St. Brendan Parish School’s Technology Committee is responsible for maintaining the hardware, software and network at the school, maintaining the school website and investigating new technologies for the school. The Technology Committee consists of parent volunteers and school teachers and works within the framework of the parish school. Our media specialist is the chair for the committee and prepares the agenda and meeting minutes.
The committee investigates, problem-solves and makes recommendations to the principal/pastor and all final decisions are made by the principal/pastor.
The purpose of the Technology Committee is to collaborate, communicate and contribute to the use of technology to advance the learning of students and employees.
The committee reviews and updates the Technology Plan in September of each school year. The plan is submitted to the School Commission for review. A year-end committee evaluation is completed each June. The committee maintains a technology budget which is overseen and reconciled by the principal and administrative assistant.
