Members of the Cleveland Hill School Board heard a presentation at their Wednesday night board meeting about paperless classrooms.
Teachers Sarah Krajewski, Sarah Janis and Tracy Meyer shared their data concerning paperless classrooms. A paperless classroom is one where assignments are completed and submitted digitally.
Students still read books. The content is the same. It’s just a different method of delivery.
The students were offered paper, the teachers said, but students are not choosing that. They don’t want paper.
Assignments can’t be left at home. They can’t be left in a locker. This prevents computers from crashing after an assignment’s been worked on for four hours. This also keeps students organized.
“So, it’s no longer the dog ate my assignment,” said Robert Polino, board president.
The School Board also heard a proposal for a music department trip to Philadelphia in May. The board will decide in two weeks whether to approve it.
The students would be working with college-level professors and would be judged against their peers from across the country. They’d also get a chance to hear the Philadelphia Orchestra perform.
The board also heard an update of the proposed capital project, including proposed roofing for the K-12 building, track replacement, rooftop units for the K-12 building and ceiling replacements.
Additionally, the board appointed Peter Wlosinski as a long-term substitute in math and Tabitha Loebel as a probationary teacher assistant.
