Parental permission is required in order for your student to access technology and digital resources at school. Alpha Academy uses a variety of technology and digital resources to enable and enhance instruction. Teachers will utilize Google Apps for Education along with various other applications in order to assess and enhance learning. As with any educational endeavor, a strong partnership with families are essential to our success.
The following services are available to each student: Google Email, Google Drive, Alpha Calendar, and Google Classroom for assignments, and authorized websites. Using these tools, students collaboratively create, edit, and share files and websites for school related projects and communicate via email with other students and teachers.
