Our Department History

  • In 2002, the Technology Department entered the 21st century by providing students access to the internet for the first time to facilitate more research projects in classrooms. In 2012, the schools received a technology facelift consisting of a printer for every teacher and full-time staff member as well as an all-in-one computer with a wireless keyboard and mouse. In 2022, many of these same schools are receiving a technology facelift with updated smart boards, and laptop access to every staff member and student on a daily basis.
