Having an issue using the technology that our district provides? Log on to the Helpdesk and submit a ticket. This is the fastest and easiest way to get a technician to address your issue. Please use the helpdesk instead of calling your technician directly or stopping them in the hallway as this usually ends in delays.
Each staff member in the Warren City School District will work as a team with students, parents, and the community to provide an effective, high-quality instructional program in a safe, pleasant learning environment. We will provide quality educational experiences meeting the needs of a diverse population by:
- Empowering students as life-long learners.
- Preparing students for employment.
- Helping students become active participants in our community and society.
Through technology, we will maximize every student’s achievement and thereby ensure productivity in a global society. This will be accomplished by providing technological, human, and material resources, which emphasize the life-long skills necessary to continue learning, communicate ideas, clearly solve problems, and use information and technology effectively.
