Our IT Department provides technical support to students, faculty and staff, as well as, professional development trainings on a continued basis. Because of the constant changes in technology, we are periodically reviewing the curriculum and the school’s needs to keep an updated environment and therefore, satisfy the needs of our community.
Research shows that integrating the use of electronic devices in the classroom helps students become more engaged in their schoolwork. Digital textbooks play an integral part of the learning experience at CPS with teachers having the ability to access e-Books, showcase their presentations, and use specialized teaching applications according to each subject.
A 1-to-1 iPad / Laptop Program was established on the 2012-13 academic year for Middle School and extended to 4th grade in 2016-17. Students are required to bring their personal electronic devices such as, an iPad or laptop each day. Those devices provide the opportunity for instant research, easier access to information and feedback, and interactive learning. It facilitates collaboration and improves productivity and organizational skills. The daily use of this technology greatly increases student confidence in their technical abilities necessary for the 21st century.
