USE OF TECHNOLOGY
We have five twenty-first century classrooms which feature advanced technology. We have five computer labs. One computer lab is designated for teaching computer applications and the other labs are utilized by teachers for research and computer assisted instruction. Our media center is equipped with computers, has several laptop computers for teacher use, and houses a Chromebook computer lab. Each classroom has a computer and an LCD projector. Many teachers have InterWrite pads and document cameras in their classrooms. Twenty computers are available in the ACCESS classroom where currently several high-achieving students are taking web-based distance learning classes this school year. Our student management system (Chalkable/INOW) is used for attendance, discipline, grading, demographics, transcripts, scheduling and other data based information. Student are now able to utilize their own electronic devices in classroom (at their teacher's discretion) as an educational tool. Many teachers also participate in Remind, a text messaging program that reminds students of upcoming assignments.
CONTINUOUS IMPROVEMENT YIELDS SUCCESS
Beulah High School is proud of the fact that we have consistently met the goals for AYP. Each year we complete a continuous improvement plan. Departments examine the testing data and determine goals and checkpoints. A committee then includes the information submitted by the academic departments in the annual continuous improvement plan. The current CIP can be viewed as a PDF under "School Publications."
