2013-14 UCCHS COURSE GUIDE
Union City Community High School recognizes the way schools deliver information to students is changing. Therefore, we have implemented what is called a 1:1 Initiative where every student has a laptop. Laptops are not the focus of this goal, but they are a tool that is used in changing the way we teach. The second primary goal of this initiative is to further level the playing field and create an equal opportunity for all learners. Every student will have access to the technology they need to interact and learn in our media and technology saturated world.
--Engage students and keep them engaged
--Prepare students for life beyond HS
--Open lines of communication between students, faculty, and parents
We believe that students will become producers of knowledge instead of consumers of knowledge and become pilots of their learning not just passengers along for the ride.” Research shows that the 1:1 initiative “levels the playing field” for all students, regardless of any families’ economic situation.
