Technology Initiative for the 2015-16 School Year
I would like to commend our staff as they have been gearing up for our planned 1:1 Computer launch later this year! They have spent many hours researching “best practices” for optimal technology use in our schools. We are working towards the full implementation of this plan, as the second semester of this 2015-16 school year gets under way. Our technology initiative does not stop at the Jr/Sr High School, as we also will utilize the Chromebooks in the elementary schools as well. Throughout their preparation for this initiative, our team has researched best practices, collaborated with our staff as well as collaborated with other districts that are currently living the 1:1 Computer initiative. Our staff is working hard to ensure an efficient roll out of this awesome initiative.
