The Petal School District Technology Department is committed to providing teachers and students with the best technology available. We see ourselves as an integral part of the learning process, and it is our pleasure to serve the teachers and students at Petal Schools. We believe technology in schools increases student productivity in and outside the classroom, encourages individual leadership in learning, expands access to learning resources, and helps develop digital citizenship within a structured environment.
As leaders in technology we must always look at how we can improve our relationship with our stakeholders and provide them with exceptional service and new ways to challenge the norms of what is possible.
