Technology Programs

All BCS classrooms are networked and offer computers for student use. In addition, all students in PK3 - Grade 8 attend computer classes in the technology center. Our computer curriculum is closely integrated with classroom academic instruction. The Type to Learn program helps students acquire strong keyboarding skills, which are continually reinforced through Grades K-8. Grades 5-8 learn applications such as Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, Excel, and web page design, while students in Kindergarten through Grade 4 enjoy Scholastic Keys, which provides an age-appropriate introduction to these applications. The curriculum emphasizes Internet instruction for both research and online learning activities, as well as the production of slide shows and multimedia presentations.
