HCPA Initiatives
Over this summer, HCPA's wireless infrastructure will be replaced with Meru Systems.  We have found that with the increase network and wireless use, we needed to update our infrastructure to not only meet the needs of the students, but to also become the driving force behind true technology integration in all levels of our school and district.

Increased use of Chromebooks will continue in the upcoming school year.  Student surveys were taken during the Spring Semester and students stated that they appreciated Chromebooks use in the classroom and at home. 

Increased use of Google Apps for Education and CurriculumLoft.
