Tech for Parents and Students
Atlanta ISD's 1:1 technology program is designed to foster teamwork and cooperation like never before. Students can collaborate with their peers, brainstorm innovative ideas, and solve problems together, all while honing essential communication and leadership skills. Through our program, students have access to state-of-the-art devices and software that will amplify their creativity, sharpen their critical thinking, and prepare them for the ever-evolving digital landscape.
This site will contain support materials for parents and students to help get to know and understand the technology tools the district uses for teaching and learning.
