CT Program

Curriculum Technology advocates (CTs) are identified in each building as those teachers possessing a strong technology background, leadership skills, a commitment to implementing the district's technology plan and a desire to work collaboratively with other classroom teachers in effectively integrating technology with district curriculum.
