Computer hardware and curriculum to be updated at schools

The Barrington Board of Education on Monday agreed to purchase 24 additional Smart Boards for Avon and Woodland schools and received word of an improved computer curriculum for Woodland School.

The Smart Board purchase will finalize a project to get the interactive white boards that recognize touch for user input into every classroom in both schools and includes training for all the teachers, Business Administrator Samuel L. Dutkin said during the meeting.

The curriculum update, meanwhile, will ensure students graduating from Woodland are better prepared for computer classes at Haddon Heights High School, Superintendent Anthony Arcodia told the school board.

Barrington students generally had been slotted into either the regular or advanced computer classes already, Arcodia said, but the new curriculum will more closely match expectation at Haddon Heights High School and give Barrington students a better chance of starting in the advanced classes.

DISCLOSURE:

As noted previously on the Bulletin, the author of this blog, Mark Correa, is running for a position on the school board this fall. As always, I invite any of the other candidates to contact me if they would like to discuss any issues on this blog or use it to state their positions.
