Description:

The purpose of the Innovate Project is to utilize technology to help Vance County’s high school students become innovative, creative and competitive for 21st Century jobs. Golden LEAF funding will be used to purchase teacher and student laptops, other classroom technology devices, and wireless cards for Internet connectivity outside of school. Teachers will be trained on how to use technology to transform instruction to meet the demands of the new Future-Ready Core Curriculum, which was initiated with ninth graders in 2009. The Innovate Project will be implemented at Northern Vance High School, Southern Vance High School, Western Vance High School, and the Vance County Early College. This project will help increase the graduation rate, increase student achievement on End-of-Course assessments, and increase college acceptance rates.
