Will my child have access to the Internet while on campus?

We believe that when used with discretion, technology can be a great educational tool. We actively make use of programs such as IXL and Renaissance Learning to help keep our students engaged and constantly learning throughout the day. If you have questions regarding your child’s access to these programs or how the Internet will specifically be used while on campus, please reach out to your child’s teacher. Please also take time to review the ECSD Acceptable Use Policy.
