In every classroom, students and teachers have access to: Chromebooks (3rd-8th grades), iPads (K-2nd grades), a SmartBoard, and an Elmo. Technology plays a key role in and out of the classroom and is the key to implementing the CORE curriculum and building skills that will lead our students into their adult lives.
