Instructional Technology at the Carthage Central School District
At CCSD we take pride in teaching 21st Century students with technology integration throughout K-12. Our students are digital natives and we recognize that these students utilize technology in their every day lives and will continue to do so into the work force.
All CCSD teachers have the capacity to utilize and integrate technology in a consistent manner and engage students through and with technology across the whole district. We are extremely fortunate to have a Board of Education that knows and understands the value of technology in education.
We are a fully 1:1 student Chromebook district. Additionally, computers and other technologies such as SmartBoards are located in all classrooms.
Technologies are utilized to engage students and teachers in interactive learning.
A wide variety of software applications exist across all grade levels.
Wireless access is available in all instructional buildings.
BYOD (Bring your own device) is available to staff and students.
All CCSD Internet access is filtered according to the Children's Internet Protection Act.
The school-home connection is established via our Student Management System - Infinite Campus as well as our main communication tool - ParentSquare.
Infinite Campus is a web enabled software that gives students and guardians the ability to track grades, attendance and other pertinent information to the students’ educational progress. This is especially important if a guardian or parent is out of the area, such as a soldier who might be deployed. This feature enables them to have total access to their student’s progress.
Our local TV Public Access Channel in conjunction with our CCSD website offers a wealth of information in regards to students’ and school activities. All Staff contact information (e-mail) and other information that students, parents and the community may seek can be found on our website.
The Carthage Central School District will provide computer related technology and appropriate training to implement curriculum and instruction that meets or exceeds New York State Standards and the CCSD Exit Outcomes.
