Our Department History
In 2002, we were entering the 21st century by giving students access to the internet for the first time to lean into more research projects in classrooms. Following that, in 2012, the schools got a technology facelift consisting of a printer for every teacher and full-time staff member and an all-in-one computer with a wireless keyboard and wireless mouse. This was because high speed printers were not readily available for schools to have. In 2022, many of these same schools are getting a technology facelift with updated smart boards, and not only does every staff member have access to a laptop, every student has access to one on a daily basis.
