Otsego Public Schools has invested $100,000 in technology for the 2012-2013 school year. The new technology will provide a variety of tools including SMART boards, computers and expanded curriculum to better prepare students for standardized tests.
“With continued budget constraints, I am excited that we are still able to provide our teachers and students with the latest technology,” said Michelle Triemstra, the district’s director of technology.
Every general education classroom at the elementary level is now equipped with a SMART Board interactive white board. The interactive whiteboards are connected to a computer allowing teachers to save or print the board’s content.
All elementary school teachers have new desktop computers. Their older computers will be added to the student use computers.
