St. Patrick’s School in Yorktown Heights and Kennedy Catholic High School in Somers are pleased to announce a new technology partnership. Beginning this Fall 2015, St. Patrick's School implemented the same iPad program currently in place at Kennedy Catholic. The iPads are issued to 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students at St. Patrick's and are used to distribute, complete, and submit assignments. They also enable individualized learning supplements for study and homework such that students at different levels can learn at a more customized pace.
Kennedy Catholic's successful iPad technology program has not only enabled a textbook free environment and a streamlined assignment process, but has created a more customized learning opportunity for its students. While St. Patrick's is not textbook free, our students do enjoy a lighter book bags and the ability to receive their assignments using educational apps. Our teachers (and the environment!) also appreciate the significant reduction in photocopies.
This unique technology partnership between St. Patrick's and Kennedy Catholic has students, parents, and faculty very excited for opportunities this provides. The willingness of the two schools to work together on this initiative shows a true commitment to advancement, and is key to the success of both students and teachers.
The faculty at St. Patrick’s has had the opportunity to receive professional development and technology support from Kennedy Catholic and is grateful for the success it has brought their students.
