Digital Learning Day at Centennial High School

Digital Learning Day will be an opportunity for teachers and students to engage in a meaningful online teaching and learning experience. Students will complete the work outside the classroom building, and assignments will be similar to the work they complete during class. Teachers will personalize instruction by offering a variety of digital learning opportunities for students.
