Elementary Learning Initiative: How’s the 1:1 pilot going?

The decision to go 1:1 was made back in 2012 when a group of forward-thinking parents called for updates to the outdated instructional technology in our schools.

Parent, Teach, Coach, Mentor Like A Champion Today

Contrary to popular belief, high achievement isn’t merely a product of innate talent or ability. Talk to any current or former coach, and you will quickly understand this truth.

“I look forward to taking the next steps with you on this great adventure.” Those are the words Eric Davis told me on May 15, 2013 when he offered me my job. Two and a half years later, those words have held up. I love adventures, and this one has been unlike any other adventure […]

I had a blast sharing about our schools here in Lafayette. I […]

At the start of the year I was contacted by Sophos.  They requested to do a study on what we had done with our infrastructure here at LCSS and how we were using their product.  Over the course of the next several weeks, they decided to write a White Paper on our school system.  Follow […]

It’s the year 2015.  We have hoverboards, self lacing Nike shoes, and flying cars! Ok, maybe I’m dreaming a little bit and thinking that […]
