The Clinton Public School is dedicated to preparing our students for a successful life in the digital age. We recognize the importance of technology as we teach our students to thrive in a global environment. With this in mind, we have made the commitment to provide the students with the tools necessary for a seamless integration of technology throughout the curriculum.
All of our computers are networked together with a high-speed backbone to support our current network needs and expandable for future needs that might be more network-intense. Each classroom has multiple computers with network access for everything from Internet, to central storage of files, to network printing. Each of our students in grades 2-8 has individual network accounts that provide both a consistent computing experience as well as security and peace-of-mind. This network environment even allows the handing in and handing out of documents electronically, limiting the need for unnecessary printing.
We also have three mobile computer labs that can be moved from classroom to classroom to integrate technology into the regular curriculum. All 3 mobile labs have wireless network access as well as wireless printing capabilities.
In addition, we also have a computer lab equipped with 25 computers that both serves as a home for formal computer instruction as well as a place for classes to come on their own to utilize the equipment.
We have a wireless networks that spans the entire building and services the teacher’s laptop computers, as well as network printers placed throughout the building to accommodate printing needs. We have three heavy-duty copiers (one of them color) that also serve as network printers and network scanners for all staff members. We have classroom amplification systems in about half of our classrooms and both mounted and mobile SMART Boards throughout CPS as well.
