Innovative Clarkstown Central School District helps Google create its newest product, Classroom
Working with cumbersome and expensive programs and equipment overwhelmed the educators of the Clarkstown Central School District. The Instructional Technology team and their colleagues needed a simple and easy-to-use solution for their classroom management.
"Teachers are able to assign work to their students in a flash, therefore maximizing student learning in the classroom."
Paul Lepore, 8th grade Social Studies, Felix Festa Middle School
After using Google Classroom for a few months, educators and the IT team pointed to two main benefits: increased student engagement and improved organization for the classroom. Google Classroom kept their students assignments organized, provided much-needed collaboration tools and applications that were easy to use and to distribute.
Clarkstown Central School District (CCSD) serves approximately 8,600 students in southern New York. Clarkstown prides itself on fostering a small school climate, community involvement, and a focus on the individual. The district has ten elementary schools, one middle school, two high schools, and one K-12 alternative education center. The district offers innovative programs to its students through web-based technology and was one of the first to adopt G Suite for Education as well as many other innovative tools. Even in times of tight budgets, the district finds ways to get the right tools to its faculty and students.
