Internet Safety

Our Mission:

 

It is the mission of the Capac Community School District to prepare all of our students to be life-long learners, educating them for success in the 21st Century.

 

This environment will enable and support students and teachers to implement transformative uses of technology while enhancing students’ engagement with content and promoting the development of self-directed and lifelong learners. Students will transition from consumers of information to creative producers and owners of the knowledge.
