Technology at Heritage Academy
At Heritage Academy, we use technology as a tool for enhancing our mission to inspire, challenge, and motivate our students to prepare them for college and for life.
Heritage Academy is proud to continue the implementation of Engage, our student 1-to1 technology program. For the 2020-2021 school year, our 9th-12th grade students will be required to have their own Apple iPad and bring it to school each day. Students in 7th-8th grade are highly encouraged to bring their own iPad to school day, yet it not a requirement for the 2020-2021 school year.
An iPad environment in the classroom makes thousands of high-quality educational apps available at our student’s fingertips. Implementing the iPad into Heritage’s daily curriculum allows the student to engage in learning like never before. The students iPads are used to access a multitude of high-quality educational apps and internet based content. They can check their grades and attendance in Powerschool, access curriculum content and assignments in Canvas, create their own movies in iMovie, and so much more!
All students at Heritage Academy will be expected to adhere to the Technology Responsible Use Agreement. Students in the 9th-12th grade will also be expected to adhere to the Engage Agreement. These Agreements can be found at the end of the Student Handbook (pages 51-57). Engage Program Offense Consequence Protocol is also in the Student Handbook (pages 40-41).
