Technology Integration Enhancement
After two years of comprehensive planning, the Technology Integration Enhancement initiative has been implemented. Grades 4-8 students and parents attended orientation sessions just prior to the start of school to learn more about:
The book bag has a life-time guarantee. A logo on the back pack was created by a Benjamin Middle School student and teacher, and the proof was sent to the manufacturer with all words spelled correctly. The book bags were delivered the day before the orientation sessions began, and a student helper found that the word “student” was spelled incorrectly. The manufacturer readily admitted to the error.
The back packs had to be used immediately since students and parents were taking the devices home to practice, using the training that they received during the orientation sessions prior to the start of school. Session participants were informed of the misspelling and the remedy the manufacturer is taking to replace the logos. New logo patches will be provided and will be sewn over the existing patch at the manufacturer’s expense.
Grade 3 students will be using the device throughout the school day and their devices will remain at school. More clusters of iPads and an interactive whiteboard in each PreK-2 classroom are being made available to students and teachers.
The feedback from students, parents, and faculty has been very positive. As one parent said, “This is the first year that my seventh grader has been looking forward to school!” More information along with videos and photographs will be publicized to show how the additional technology is being used to enhance learning.
Reminder: Parents whose children ride the bus are advised to regularly check the web site for updated bus schedules as these schedules are subject to change both prior to the start of the new school year and the first few weeks after the school year begins.
