CROTHERSVILLE — Crothersville students kicked off the school year Thursday with a smooth first day.
“It’s about the planning,” Crothersville Elementary School Principal Chris Marshall said.
Wednesday, teachers gathered to go over materials, review ISTEP scores and share discussion in the school’s vision, which was focused greatly on using technology to help educate students.
Marshall said that while the school’s priority is state test scores it is important to keep staff involved in the school’s short- and long-term visions.
As he begins his fifth year as principal, Marshall said the school uses technology to allow teachers to be able to educate students at their own pace.
By using interactive technology, lessons can be tailored to the student. Teachers have the opportunity to work with a spectrum of learning levels while the students work at their own speed, Marshall said.
“There is no way they can manage that by paper,” he said.
