CUSD Vision Statement:  All students academically prepared to achieve their full potential, supported by and contributing to the community.

“This has been a year of transformation! The device deployment was a success and our district is 1:World! The students have devices in their hands and they are excited to use these in their classrooms. Students are learning more about Google Apps for Education as it is integrated with lesson design. Teachers are able to provide feedback and check for understanding in real-time and use this information to guide their instruction. Closing the technology gap for our students is becoming a reality and the world is at their fingertips.”

Students Learning with Tech

Imagine a teacher being able to create a set of questions to which students respond electronically, with the results displayed instantly through an LCD projector, allowing the teacher to gauge the level of student understanding and provide immediate feedback. Imagine students being able to access a virtual library with the swipe of a finger, conduct research, embed photos and graphics into their assignments and participate in interactive “field trips” – all without leaving their desks.

A perfect storm of opportunity exists for ushering in this new era, as districts adopt new instructional materials with the brightening economic picture after years of lean budgets, the cost of wireless-enabled computers (such as Google Chromebooks) drops well below $300, and more and more districts establish robust wireless networks on their school campuses.Read more >>
