• 1989-1991

    During this period the district made a considerable initial investment in securing computer-based resources and establishing the base infrastructure in each school’s local area network environment.  These resources included the establishment of networked computer labs, automated libraries, and single computer classrooms for special education, BSIP and ESL classrooms.  Through these years teachers and students participated in an evolving computer literacy curriculum, but were also engaged to experiment with and explore new teaching methodologies and tools for instruction.  Through the 1990-91 and 1991-92 school years, the district participated as a beta test site for IBM’s Writing to Write Curriculum.  As one of eleven districts nation wide to pilot the program and provide the company with field data, we had the opportunity to recommend changes prior to the product’s first commercial release.
