Instructional Technology Program K-12

We believe that technology is a tool, not a curriculum. The technology that we use supports, enhances, expands and individualizes instruction. In addition to being a vast resource for research, our use of technology tracks and benchmarks our students progress. Our use of technology also archives student information, manages student data, and supports district wide internal and external communication. All use of Internet access is filtered and monitored by the Mississippi Department of Education.

Infrastructure and Software:

Elementary: Students and teachers have access to four networked computers located in their classrooms. In addition they can use the computers in the Media Center, Computer Lab or by rolling the 23 Wireless Laptop Cart to their classroom. Most students in grades K-5 have scheduled sessions in the 30 Seat Computer Lab or the 13 new computers in the supervised recreation room that also supports the after school program. All other technology instruction takes place in the classroom. Teachers also have access to their Groupwise email accounts from any web-based computer. 

Kindergarten through Second Grade: Standard classrooms have four networked computers with sound. They have the following software: Accelerated Reader, Breakthrough to Literacy, Encarta Encyclopedia, Comptons Encyclopedia, McGraw Hill Phonics, MicroType Multimedia, Opac, Open Office, Shurley English Classify, and programs that the individual teachers purchase and install. These software applications are used to enhance language development, prediction, and problem solving skills. 

Third through Fourth Grade: Standard classrooms have four networked computers with sound. They have the following software: Accelerated Reader, Breakthrough to Literacy, Encarta Encyclopedia, Comptons Encyclopedia, McGraw Hill Phonics, MicroType Multimedia, Opac, Open Office, Shurley English Classify, Accelerated Math and programs that the individual teachers purchase and install. These software applications are used to enhance language development, prediction, and problem solving skills. 

Fifth Grade: All classrooms have four networked computers with sound. Extensive use of networked workstations and software has improved test scores. Fifth Grade students use Microsoft Word for word processing. All students have had the opportunity to improve keyboarding skills using the MicroType Multimedia program either in their classrooms or wireless laptop computer cart. All students have been instructed and tested with Accelerated Reader. All classes are working with Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, and they are creating charts in Excel. Fifth graders also do extensive research using The Mississippi Department of Education’s filtered Internet service and Encarta Encyclopedia.
