Hardware

 

As was stated in the Concord Public Schools 2010-2015 Technology Plan, our students need access to technology resources that are comprehensive enough to equitably meet their educational needs and flexible enough to accommodate new curricula, new teaching practices, new technologies, and individual initiative.

Teachers and students at Alcott are very fortunate to have access to a wide range of technology resources that can be integrated into the K-5 curriculum.
