WELCOME to the Little Ferry Public Schools I.T. Department page. We're pleased that you took the time to visit us. Information Services is committed to using current technologies to support the Little Ferry Public Schools district-wide goal to educate our students to high standards enabling them to become productive, responsible citizens. Technology can break down barriers. It allows students to learn anytime, anywhere in or out of school. Our department's goal is to provide fast, reliable, and courteous service in dealing with day to day issues in the district.

We are constantly looking for ways to enhance the learning experience for our students and teaching environment for staff members using our combined 30 plus years of experience in the Information Services field. We strive to provide the assistance, support and training for our staff that will enable them to utilize available hardware and software to create a comprehensive learning experience for all of our students. When our students leave our school system we want them to be comfortable and proficient in the use of technology and have the skills to transition to and through high school.

Another important function of the LFPS I.T. Department is the promotion of safe and productive use of technology resources. We utilize web filtering and real time monitoring to insure that students are not exposed to inappropriate local or Internet content. Our filters are set up to be protective without being overly restrictive. Should a staff member find that a site is blocked, they can request that it be reviewed and unblocked if deemed suitable for student use. All students are required to sign and adhere to the provisions of a District Acceptable Use Policy.

As part of a shared services arrangement with the Borough of Little Ferry we assist in the maintenance of the Administrative, Library and Police Department technology assets.
