Technology

In our computer lab, the students in 1st through 5th grade have computer class once a week with our Technology Teacher. The Middle School students have computer class once a week for one trimester. The Kindergarten students start in January and meet once a week. The lab is open to all teachers when classes are not taking place.

In our Middle School area, we have 3 mobile labs with 45 laptop computers, 30 of which are the latest technology 2 in 1 style with touchscreen.  There are 3 mobile carts with 54 iPads, as well as 62 iPads spread throughout the K-5 classrooms.
 
Our switches are linked with 10 GB fiber, utilizing the Aruba network WiFi system.
 
Students work with Microsoft Office tools. Our 5th - 8th graders are using Google docs and Google classroom.

The following 2 programs are also used throughout the year:
