Muscogee County School District is offers a solid education to over ninety percent of all school-age children in Muscogee County through one of their public schools. That is a responsibility which is not taken lightly; in fact all MCSD schools meet the requirements set forth by not only the Georgia Department of Education but also the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS). Great focus is put on cultural diversity teaching students understanding and respect, and several of the schools have adopted the use of uniforms in order to promote a cooperative atmosphere where students can feel less peer pressure and more easily focus on their studies.
One of the most recent and exciting school improvement programs, is that Muscogee County schools are in the process of implementing new technologies into the classrooms in order to better facilitate a broader range of educational techniques. One of these is the integration of SMART Board Technology in classrooms throughout each of the Columbus Georgia schools. The SMART Boards are interactive whiteboards which enable teachers to utilize current technologies in the teaching environment while students learn and express their imagination in the most effective way possible. Each teacher will receive two days of training on the SMART Board in order to be prepared to use them during class sessions. Over five hundred SMART Boards will be installed in classrooms this year alone, and by 2013 all classrooms in the MCSD will have them.
The use of SMART Boards in the classroom is expected to improve student achievement and facilitate a professional learning environment for children of all ages. It is great to see the local educational system taking an interest in facilitating a change that will greatly enhance the current classroom setting.
