Hibbing Public Schools has a robust technology infrastructure supporting a district-wide Digital Learning Initiative. Technology is used extensively throughout both educational and administrative processes. All students in grades K through 12 have their own iPad.

The Technology Department supports a variety of classroom technologies, computer labs, iPads and educational software systems.
Hardware: The district has computer labs for student use, as well as a district-wide 1:1 iPad program. All classrooms are also outfitted with projectors, interactive software, and audio enhancement systems.
Software: We use several software systems to deliver a wide variety of curriculum services in all subject areas, including: Learning Management Systems, Student Assessment Systems, Curriculum Delivery Systems, and Library Services.
These online services provide students with instruction, and assesses their understanding of the materials presented. The software also tracks each student's progress through their courses. Reports are made available to the faculty showing student progress.
The district also uses specialized software in dedicated curriculum areas, such as CAD, graphic arts, electricity, and robotics.
In additional to digital learning, the district's technology infrastructure supports a wide variety of administrative services, including: Student Information Systems, Financial Management Systems, Human Resources Systems, and Communications Systems.
Our Student Information System (SIS) provides an electronic gradebook that teachers use in their classroom. Parents and students have access to their assignments, attendance and grades online. The SIS also manages state reporting requirements, student test score data, as well as other data.
We also utilize an interactive messaging system which can send voice and text messages as well as interactive components to parents and guardians.
