The Tech+ Division has been working diligently to support our foundation infrastructure and update some much needed equipment. In early June we replaced a 30 year old transformer in our Data Center taking our COE and all districts offline for a few hours on a Saturday. During that same time, we upgraded to a robust next generation firewall to ensure our students and staff are protected from the most nefarious attacks. Special thanks to our Network and Systems Administrator Joey Stanbra for leading the efforts.
In Edtech we solidified a statewide grant to support digital literacy across the state. This grant, provided by the CDEFoundation is to train teachers and administrators in creating digital literacy lesions integrated within the curricula.
We also completed a partnership with Community Television where we trained several teachers on how to use Video in the classroom for students to demonstrate content knowledge. Community Television lended out iPad Video Production Kits and students created videos.
From our Computer Science education programs, we finished the year with wonderful programmatic success. Please view our Infographic to learn more. For 2022-2023, we have close to 100 students across the county interested in taking our IT Essential/Cabrillo articulated course–we will have 2 sections in North County and 2 sections in South County.
