Message from the Director of Technology
I am excited to have the opportunity to serve the Farrell Area School District as director of the technology department. My goal is to help facilitate continuous improvement to the quality of education available to students through technology. I have previously served the district as a technician. During that time, I worked to upgrade much of the technology infrastructure throughout the district. This strong foundation has enabled us to begin introducing new technologies such a Google G Suite for Education. The introduction of G Suite has allowed us to pilot the use of Chromebooks in both the elementary and high school. We are also working to make new mobile devices available to our youngest students. New this year is a cart of iPad tablets for use by our kindergarten classes. We are also heavily focused on enhancing our STEM offerings and technology will play an integral role in that effort. This is just the beginning and we are committed to continuing to grow the Farrell Area School District into an example of a school district that has successfully embraced technology to transform education.
-Brad Hoagland, Director of Technology
