What's Happening This Semester...

This semester is jam-packed with decisions, training, training, and MORE training!

We will be working together to figure out logistics of 1:1 Chromebooks for 8th, 9th and 10th grades that will be deploying in the Fall of 2017! Also, 4th, 8th, 9th, & 10th grade teachers will be going through mobile device training and 6th, 7th, 9th - 12th will be participating in Canvas training. It will be a fun-filled semester with of lots of learning!

About the Project

Mission: Empowering all students to succeed in a

changing society.

Vision: Advancing excellence in everything we do!

Digital Conversion, simply put, is about learning and not about technology. The project will provide student mobile devices, digital content (curriculum, including textbooks), professional development, network infrastructure, and a Learning Management System. This project will provide our students with the experience, skills, confidence, and adaptability they will need to succeed in college and in the workforce.
