Our one to one rollout with students, teachers and parents has been an enormous opportunity. Over 340 students and parents attended nine device information and pickup sessions in July and August, including a special session on social media awareness in collaboration with local police departments. More than half of all middle and high school teachers are using Google Classroom and over 80% of our high school students are home users (they’ve taken advantage of the opportunity to use a MacBook at home!). Our student technology leadership program (STLP) and GOTIT team (Greendevil Operations Technical Instructions Team) has grown tremendously this year with 22 high school students solving technology problems for students and teachers throughout the school and at our STLP help desk. We also have 17 eighth grade students taking a yearlong introduction to STLP course with our blended
learning media specialist, Angie Boyers.
Juniors and Seniors will have the opportunity to take the ACT at Dayton on Tuesday, October 2nd. This ACT is referred to as the District ACT and the district is paying the cost of the ACT for all Juniors and Seniors who have not yet met College Readiness Benchmarks. Juniors and Seniors who have met College Readiness Benchmarks may still take the ACT, but pay for the cost of the ACT. As a reminder, the district is picking up the cost for Juniors and Seniors who have met College Readiness Benchmarks to attend Gateway and earn College Credits. We have 25 students attending Gateway for dual credit college courses this year, as well as 30 students attending technical school for programs such as information technology, electrical, auto body, auto tech, welding, health science, masonry and carpentry.
Luke Roth was recognized with a special dinner and ceremony in August by the Boone Masons for achievement at the national masonry competition in Lexington. He earned 8th place among competitors from 32 states! It was only through the generosity, sponsorship and support of the Masons that Luke was able to attend the competition. Please congratulate Luke for such an incredible achievement.
