Technology Transition for 2018-2019 School Year
Posted 05/09/2018 06:50PM

Dear Parents,

Lee-Scott Academy realizes that technology impacts our daily lives, including education and our students. It can be a very powerful and beneficial tool for teaching and learning as we prepare our students for college. Our faculty is using technology in their classrooms to foster collaboration, communication, critical thinking, and creativity on a daily basis.

LSA will be transitioning from student-owned to school-owned devices for our 6th, 9th, and 10th graders beginning with the 2018-2019 school year in order to utilize classroom management software and to better prepare our upperclassmen for college. The Board of Trustees has approved an implementation plan that will allow the campus to be all school-owned beginning with the 2020-2021 school year. A Technology Task Force Committee has been formed to implement this new plan with our faculty and students.
