Technology makes life easier and technology skills are important to develop for life after high school. Bishop Hartley’s one to one device program strives to give students the tools to enhance their educational experience.
With the privilege of a device comes responsibility. Every student is expected to be in compliance on their device to protect it from damage, and to stay current on updates. Compliance on school issued device is mandatory. Students must be in compliance all day, every day.
In the fall of 2019 Bishop Hartley High School switched to a new Learning Management System called PowerSchool. This system replaces ALMA and affords more access by parents than the prior system. PowerSchool has an app which all parents can download in addition to accessing online. The school provides parents with instructions via email on how to setup a PowerSchool account. This account gives parents access to students' account with all classes, grades and communication.

For the 2020-2021 school year, we are providing synchronous learning in which students are engaging in the same learning activity whether they are physically in the classroom or remote with InFocus Technology. Combining this technology with PowerSchool and Microsoft Teams, students learning in school and remotely will be “present” in the classroom five days a week.
Beyond the current challenges we face, this technology benefits our learning environment in the long term through its adaptability and multiple capabilities.
Studies show that technology integration in curriculum improves students' learning processes and outcomes. Bishop Hartley utilizes the Office 365 Suite giving students access to Outlook email, Microsoft Teams, OneDrive and all the office apps (e.g., Word and PowerPoint). This not only allows your students to stay in direct connection with faculty and staff, it also builds their digital skills including digital organization, digital security and virtual collaboration. We also utilize Microsoft Teams as our video conferencing platform with multiple features including document sharing, screen sharing and syncing with all our Office 365 Apps. This allows students to learn and engage, regardless of their physical location.
