Our mission is to prepare all students to be digital learners who use technology as a tool to graduate ready for success in college and careers.
The ISTE Standards for Students are designed to empower student voice and ensure that learning is a student-driven process of exploration, creativity and discovery no matter where they or their teachers are in the thoughtful integration of ed tech. There are seven modules for students.

On Thursday, March 2, 2017, Ms. Kimberly Smith-Whetter and her American Sign Language (ASL) class at John Francis Polytechnic High School participated in a classroom discussion using TodaysMeet, which is design to serve as a backchannel chat platform for classroom teachers and learners. The ASL students were provided Chromebook devices in their classroom and they were instructed on how to use the TodaysMeet application. They were able to master the technology with ease.
