UT-UCS believes that infusing technology into classroom instruction will create students who are academically competitive, technology literate, motivated and engaged in the learning process. UT-UCS strives to give students, teachers and other school affiliates the opportunity to grow, be progressive, do new and interesting things in a safe, efficient and useful manner.
 
UT-UCS ensures that throughout the District, information technology is well maintained, useful and available. UT-UCS recognizes the increasing expectations for schools to provide students with coherent, high-quality educational opportunities in preparation for success in the Information Age.
