Message From john J. armstrong


Joliet Public Schools District 86 is proud to integrate cutting-edge technology resources into the District instructional environment. We believe technology should be used as a tool, integrated into the curriculum, supporting differentiated instruction and instructional best practices.

Joliet District 86, as a community of learners, is committed to maintain a foundation of partnerships to enable our students, staff, parents, and community to use technology as they become creative, independent, responsible, life-long learners.

Through technology, we will continue to provide instructional technology resources and learning environments that empower our students to make sound decisions based on current research, available resources and knowledge of the community to which they are responsible.

Technology will continue to support learning for:

  • Students, through the integration of technology in the classroom;
  • Staff, through research-based professional development activities;
  • Parents and Community members through home/school connections and partnerships
