Engage. Extend. Enrich.
The vision of the technology department at Mineral Wells ISD is to: Improve student engagement and outcomes through the provision and support of equitable and innovative technology. Mineral Wells ISD is a 1:1 school district where each PK-12 student has access to a computing device for engaging instruction. Our junior high and high school students can take a device (Chromebook) home each day, further extending their educational opportunities. We are continually improving and upgrading our classroom and common area presentation technologies, often incorporating wireless screen casting and/or interactive features, which contributes to an enriched learning environment.
