Students at Attleboro High School returned to a welcome yet unseen change at school this year. In August, a wireless network was installed in the Library Media Center to expand the capabilities of the facility.
Attleboro Superintendent of Schools, Dr. Pia Durkin said, "As a district committed to 21st Century learning, this is another benchmark in our efforts to provide the best for our students."
Principal Bill Runey added, "We believe that a Wi-Fi network is a great step forward at AHS. I think it's extremely important for more students and teachers to have access to the tools available to them virtually."
With this upgrade, the Library Media Center has already become a place where classes are being held to utilize this resource. Social Studies Content Coordinator Tobey Reed said, "Students come to school with all of the knowledge in the world in their backpacks. It would be foolish not to take advantage of that and have students use their devices on projects. The wireless in the library is the first step toward a more student-centered classroom where the students are actively engaged in their learning."
