The District's recent refinancing of a 2011 bond has given it the opportunity to boost its technology infrastructure ensuring that it will be fully capable of supporting Southern Columbia Area's K-12 learning goals for many years to come. The bond refinancing has resulted in a $1.684 million payback to the District which is being reinvested back into its schools to improve learning, and the learning environment, for our students and staff.

Technology supports the District’s student-centered learning approach and provides teachers with ever-increasing opportunities to engage their students in active learning, and collaborative, project-based lessons, not possible otherwise. The bond refinancing effort will allow the District to adopt a technology life-cycle plan which will keep teacher and student computers current. The backbone of the technology network will also be enhanced with new servers and cable management improvements, keeping it robust. Please click this link or the photo below to read more about this initiative as reported by the Shamokin News-Item.
