High School Technology Days
A digital classroom is one of many important tools to help our students be successful in today’s rapidly changing global society. Schools in Sumter County have secured the electronic infrastructure needed for breakthroughs in digital learning, thanks to the support of Superintendent Richard A. Shirley and the Sumter County School Board. Schools will kick off the year with a variety of technology advances such as Sumter One to One. “Sumter wants to stay on the cutting edge of technology, career preparation and innovation to help our students meet the academic needs of our students and the future workforce that will employ them,” says Superintendent Shirley.
Sumter One-to-One is expanding to provide student laptops in the classroom for every student in second through eighth grade. All high school students at South Sumter High and Wildwood Middle High will receive an individual laptop to travel with the student throughout the day and home. Technology Days will be held at each high school prior to the start of school for families to receive the student laptops and load relevant applications and software. Technology Days will be held during flexible hours to accommodate working students and parents. Parents must sign an acceptable use policy. Integrating technology into the classrooms is critical to ensure all Sumter students are prepared with 21st Century Skills. Through Sumter One-to-One, students have access to academic software, on demand assessments, tutoring, multi-media communication, and coding programs. Every student has a Microsoft 365 account with full access to Microsoft Outlook, Word, Sway, PowerPoint, Excel and much more.
