Project Connect: Advancing Learning Through Technology is the St. Joseph School District's 1:1 initiative. This pilot program began in January, 2012, with two secondary schools, Benton High School and Bode Middle School, and two elementary schools, Edison Elementary and Lindbergh Elementary. All students at Benton and Bode received a MacBook laptop. Students in grades 4-6 at Lindbergh and Edison received an iPad tablet.In spring, 2012, the Board of Education voted to expand Project Connect to more SJSD schools. Beginning in the fall semester of 2012, the ninth grade classes at Lafayette and Central High Schools, as well as all students at Robidoux, Spring Garden, and Truman Middle Schools, received an iPad tablet. In January and February, 2013, students in grades 4-6 at Noyes, Humboldt, Hosea, Hall, Mark Twain, and Lake Elementary Schools received an iPad tablet.This portal serves as an information center for frequently asked questions, policies, paperwork, news, and more.
