Vision and Needs Assessment

Needs Assessment

In March 2006, all the schools completed the State Technology Survey. These surveys plus
information from site technology coordinators at our regular meetings and information from the
California Basic Educational Data System (CBEDS) provided us with the basis for a general
needs assessment for the use of technology in the Palm Springs Unified School District.

Mission Statement

The highly trained and effective staff of Palm Springs Unified School District, in partnership with our students, their families, and the community, will provide each student with the most appropriate educational opportunities in a safe, secure environment, so that all students can achieve their full potential as contributing members of the community.
