Technology plays a vital role in instruction, learning, and operational needs. The Cathedral-Carmel Technology Plan, guided by the ISTE Standards, directs and aligns technology integration. CCS is committed to the integration of technology within the curriculum. Students use the technology lab, laptops, tablets, and other devices for learning. Students in grades 1-8 are in a 1:1 device learning environment. Technology encourages student participation and interaction through applications such as Google’s G Suite, SuccessMaker, MatthXL, Brainpop, LPB Discovery Education, More Starfall, and numerous others. Personalized learning programs such as MathXL, SuccessMaker, Keyboard Without Tears, SplashMath, and Renaissance Learning, as well as differentiated learning activities, assist students and teachers to ensure each child’s individual learning goals are met.
FACTS: FACTS is an online comprehensive school administrative and student information system. Cathedral-Carmel uses Family Port, a component of FACTS, to improve the flow of information among administrators, parents, students, and teachers. Through this program, parents have the ability to access information such as: student grades, attendance, progress reports, quarter report cards, and billing information.
