Spartanburg 2 EXCEL


We believe the everyday use of an individual device will provide students with the skills they need to support their learning and prepare them for higher education opportunities and for the demands of future jobs. This initiative is not about a specific device; it is about empowering students to enrich their learning-to EXCEL-with the advantage of digital tools.

With access to the district-issued iPads on a regular basis, students have current information at their fingertips. They will be able to improve reading fluency, build mathematical skills, and experience content in ways they have not been able to do so in the past. The iPads will be used in conjunction with textbooks and paper and pencil activities. Technology will be used, as appropriate, to augment best instructional practices. Teachers will have another avenue to include multimedia information in lessons and to personalize learning.

As we progress with the EXCEL initiative, we will continue to learn with our students, parents, and teachers about how to best meet students' learning needs, evolving with new opportunities created by technology.
