Technology

It’s a tech-driven world. Our aim is to put students in the driver's seat by infusing traditional learning techniques with innovative technology. 

1:1 Technology Initiative

Every student deserves access to technology and the opportunities available to those who understand and harness its power. Our 1:1 technology program prepares students to be future ready by using technology in every classroom and placing a device in the hands of every student. 

We issue every junior high and high school student a Chromebook for use at school and at home. Students in the primary grades enjoy learning and completing exercises on iPads during class time.

Accidental Protection Plans

We encourage families to take advantage of our accidental protection plan for all student devices to save money in case of accidental device damages. Coverage begins when the office bookkeeper receives the annual premium payment in full.

Digital Citizenship

Decatur County Community Schools understand the privileges and responsibilities of 1:1 technology in the school. Among these is the responsibility to be good digital citizens.

We will practice good digital citizenship by being safe, responsible, and respectful users of technology. Staff will increase their own digital citizenship skills and model these through instruction and interaction with students. Students will use their devices to learn, create, and connect in a manner that protects private information, maintains a positive self-image, treats others with respect, and gives credit to other creators.
