Greater Clark County Schools (GCCS) and the City of Charlestown held a press conference on Tuesday to announce Adult Education technology classes that will be offered to the community. In 2009, GCCS, in partnership with the City of Charlestown, implemented the One-to-One Laptop Computer Initiative Program to give every student in grades 6 -12 laptop computers to in an effort to integrate computer technology into the regular school curriculum. The computer initiative was in line with and supported the City of Charlestown’s economic development initiative to become a technology center where citizens of Charlestown can obtain enhanced technology skills and work in technology businesses that are recruited to the area. The partnership has a synergy where education and economic development are working on a common mission to provide a viable prosperous community in which to work and live. Beginning May 9, GCCS will offer Adult Education technology classes at Charlestown High School. Five different classes will be offered that will afford community members the opportunity to qualify for IC3 Certification. See attachment for full details. The classes are designed to help parents understand what students are learning in the classroom or to help business community members enhance their computer skills. Community members can register for these classes by contacting Charlestown High School at (812) 256-3328.
