Singing into the New Year

Singing into the New Year
During the district's recent Board of Education meeting, the community and board received a taste of Forest Road School’s winter concert as the school’s chorus, led by director Sarah Fernandez, performed two songs. The community and board also heard about district technology plans through Assistant Superintendent for Curriculum and Instruction Jennifer Lewner and Administrative Director for 21st Century Learning Susan Rodriguez, and commended administrative assistant Annette Rosa-McDonald for her service as she embarks on retirement at the end of the 2018-19 school year. 

Through their technology presentation, Ms. Lewner and Ms. Rodriguez showcased how far the district has come with new tools, software and programs to enhance student success, professional development for staff and communication within the district. Among the many talking points was the recent expansion of technology into the physical education classes in all three buildings which has brought new physical fitness experiences to students. Ms. Lewner and Ms. Rodriguez also highlighted the 2019-20 technology focal points. This included a refresh cycle on student personal computers, an iPad and Chromebook refresh, continued support for the integration of technology, streaming and video recording for instruction and more.
