Every teacher at Breitung Township has a modern laptop and is well-trained in many computer applications.  Some of the areas they utilize their laptop computer for include:  entering grades and attendance into our PowerSchool Student Management System; communicating with parents, administrators and fellow teachers through E-mail; publishing their weekly lesson plans on the school’s website; and integrating multi-media and technology-based content into their classroom instruction. 

Sophisticated hardware and software are maintained and monitored to protect the school’s network against virus attacks, SPAM and filter inappropriate matter on the internet.  The school district provides access only to safe Internet websites in accordance with CIPA, the Children’s Internet Protection Act.

We also operate a public TV channel (25) called “Blue Tube” which keeps the community informed.
