Media Center Mission Statement

  • The Fulton County Schools Media and Educational Technology department promotes academic excellence by empowering student and staff to be effective, discriminating users of ideas and information. Additionally, Fulton County Schools Media and Educational Technology Instructors (METIs) assist instructional staff in using technology effectively for differentiating instruction and providing rigorous, relevant, and engaging learning experiences for all students. The Fulton County Schools Media and Educational Technology department facilitates the development of balanced and relevant collections of digital and print resources for teacher and student use. Digital resources are provided for all students that are accessible anytime, anywhere, on any web-enabled computer, laptop, or mobile device. 


  • Independence High School is well-equiped to offer students a technology-enhanced learning environment, and teachers have taken advantage of this by incorporating technology into their teaching methods.

    We have Epson interactive projector/whiteboards in all classrooms as well as Microsoft "Surface tablets". This is to further student involvement and teacher evaluation in the learning process. We also have a Media Center with a variety of both traditional and the latest learning aids . These resources can be used daily. Our Media Center is the hub for research. Our Media Para-Professional, Mr. Charles Bethell, provides students with expert guidance on how to use various online databases as well as in-house resources to complete their projects.

    Our Career Technology Department offers very popular topics and courses. Moreover, the Language Arts Department utilizes technology to ignite an interest in reading by students.
