Leading this project is a diverse team that is dedicated, resilient and resolute.  Each staff member has been selected for their individual skill sets, interests and community contacts, and perhaps even more importantly for their mutually passionate desire to serve the needs of all our students.  

Classrooms are becoming "smart spaces," environments, both physical and digital, in which students and technology interact to create a more immersive, interactive and automated experience.  We are entering a period of accelerated learning as technology becomes more sophisticated and an integral part of our student's daily lives.
