ISD 279 has a long tradition of using technology to support instruction and administrative functions. The first technology Plan was created in 1995 to establish a guiding framework for ISD 279 to follow. The emphasis of this plan and the 1998 plan was to put computers in the classroom for teacher and student use, establish computer labs and ensure administrative support. The Plan also established local and wide area networks to ensure web access for students and staff. The third plan, from 2001-2004 identified the need to establish a computer refresh program to ensure that access was as up-to-date as possible and moved ISD 279 into the 21st Century with a robust fiber optic local area network and a consolidated and service efficient system of servers (SAN) to create a more efficient environment for access.
