Copenhagen Central School took the lead in education by embarking on an ambitious one-to-one learning initiative we call "The KnightPad Program.   This  initiative started in the Fall of 2012 with our Middle School Students and Staff and is expanding to include all Students and Staff in Grades 5-11 during the 14-15 school year.


After many months of discussion, planning, and research, CCS was prepared to move forward with this technology and education initiative that transforms the way we teach, and how our students learn. This plan began with our Capital Project which allowed us to strengthen our technology infrastructure to support wireless networking.  The Technology Committee proposed a one to one initiative following numerous meeting, surveys,  and research.   At the core of this educational initiative is a one-to-one learning environment for students in grades 6 - 10.

 

Each CCS 6-10 grade student will have access to an iPad, allowing them to explore, discover, invent and stay connected – in and out of the classroom. With our faculty’s guidance, our students are able to learn and discover through an enhanced curriculum.

CCS sponsored “Catching Up With Your Kids…” an evening for parents and students in grades 6-8 on Thursday, February 7.  

Over 50 parents were in attendance with their middle schooler & their school issued iPad.
