Initiatives

Goshen Community Schools employs technology to improve instruction at all levels.  We continue to seek affordable and effective opportunities to infuse technology in the learning process to ensure our students receive relevant and timely instruction.

Goshen High School 1 to 1 program

The 1 to 1 program at Goshen High School is now in its fourth year, providing laptops for 9th – 12th graders. Since the fall of the 2014-2015 school year, all GHS students are issued a computer.

Projectors in Every Classroom

Every classroom in GCS is outfitted with a mounted LCD projector, allowing teachers to utilize the vast resources of the internet to create dynamic and engaging lessons.

Instructional Devices for Every Teacher

GCS continues to phase in iPads and AppleTVs across the district, giving teachers access to an enormous number of educational applications.  The AppleTV allow these applications to be presented directly to the projectors for classroom viewing, collaboration, and discussion.

Policies and Guidelines

Repairs and Software Support

Electronic technology and software sometimes seem to do mysterious things. The TRCs and Tech Associates at GCS work hard to meet the service needs of the staff and students. All staff use our web-based help ticket system to report technology issues.

Purchases and Planning

GCS technology purchases originate from instructional or productivity needs of students and staff. Requisitions start with staff. TRCs and Techs assist staff with making sure the hardware and software requests are compatible with GCS systems. Approval from building and corporation administrators is the final step before orders are placed.
