In an effort to promote student leadership, address technology competencies, and encourage collaboration between teachers, students, and parents, Suffield Public Schools is excited to offer our innovative Students Working to Advance Technology program. S.W.A.T. members work closely with faculty, students, and staff to support district technology both in and out of the classroom. We act as liaisons to the Technology Committee as well as assist users in the District's increased emphasis on technology as a vital tool for learning and collaboration in today's educational environment.
