  • ACSC Rolls Out New Technology Initiative!
     
    Avon Community School Corporation (ACSC) is implementing a new program for students in 5th through 12th grades. The Strategic Technology Expansion Plan and Upgrades Program (STEP-UP) will prepare Avon students for a technology-rich future while expanding learning outside the traditional classroom.

    When the school year begins in 2015, students in 6th, 8th and 9th grades will receive a laptop computer for classroom instruction. In the 2016-17 school year, STEP-UP will expand to include all students in 5th through 12th grades.

    “We are excited to bring the STEP-UP Program to our schools,” said ACSC Technology Director Jason Brames. “Technology based tools offer greater opportunities for collaborative learning and will enhance teaching and learning in our schools.”

    ACSC teachers are receiving specialized professional development and will use up-to-date technology curriculum in the classroom. When students receive their computers, they will receive age-appropriate instruction regarding digital citizenship. Parent education sessions will be held at the schools for Avon families to ensure a smooth transition to STEP-UP. 

    To learn more about the STEP-UP Program, please visit www.avon-schools.org/stepup. There is a video, FAQ and other details to assist Avon families.
