Valuable Features

  1. Always free. The curriculum includes all training and support, and has no books to purchase.   No future curriculum costs is guaranteed, even with content updates.
  2. IT skills are in demand and a great sell to parents. Advertising and offering up to date IT training classes can help deter your students from open enrolling in other school districts.
  3. Offering an intro IT class in middle or high school can help develop interest in technology topics, which then encourages students to take other computing-related courses offered by your school.
  4. Our organized, step-by-step units make it easy for you to support a teacher who is inexperienced in IT knowledge into an expert, and with little to no stress.
  5. The curriculum is standards aligned; preparing students for Precision Exams – Information Technology (801).  College and Career Resources are also included.
