Mission statement of the school technology plan

Facilitate the integration of effective, existing, and emerging technologies, throughout all aspects of our educational community, in order to enhance learning opportunities for all students, to promote life-long learning for all members of the Liceo de Zamboanga community, and to support the effective use of resources

Technology needs assessment

Liceo de Zamboanga will need to purchase additional items to expand and maintain the existing network and support technology in the classrooms.  The Technology Committee Computer Guidelines require new equipment be purchased with a 5 year warranty.  Technology needs will include a 4 year equipment replacement program to maintain a standard for equipment to support current student, staff, and administrative software needs.

The Technology Committee has identified an on-going need to replace and upgrade technology equipment on a regular, rotating basis.  The Technology Committee Computer Guidelines replacement plan for Liceo de Zamboanga and specialized curricular needs will be the driving forces in future acquisitions. The construction and renovation plans will generate requirements for infrastructure, wiring and hardware needs through the next 5 years.
