As we anticipate the return of students to our classrooms, we are investing in technology that will allow all families, regardless of whether your student continues to learn at home or return to school (when possible), to access engaging and dynamic lessons developed and delivered by the classroom teacher. We have partnered with Promethean since 2008 with a number of devices on each campus and are thrilled to expand this tool to every classroom in our schools!
