Hoover City Schools uses instructional technology as one way of enhancing the mission to prepare and inspire all students for lifelong success by teaching the skills, knowledge, and behaviors students will need as responsible citizens in the global community. Excellence in education requires that technology is seamlessly integrated throughout the education program. In an effort to increase access to those 21st-century skills, HCS has made it a goal to offer students a 24/7 accessibility to their learning through this “Engaged Learning Initiative” (ELI). The individual use of technology is a way to empower students to maximize their full potential and to prepare them for college and the workplace.

Each year Hoover City Schools teaches, promotes, and empowers our students to become positive digital citizens. For the past several years, our district and schools have become Common Sense Certified. In fact, Hoover was one of the first school district in the state to earn this certification.
