Sioux Center Community Schools going more high tech

Posted:
SIOUX CENTER, Iowa (KTIV) -

Most likely, you've checked the web or been on a computer at some point today. Sioux Center Community School officials say they know how important the role of technology is in education.

That's why they're doing a major remodel of the middle school and high school library.

The space will be transformed into a technology center and the school will also be adding on a science, technology, engineering, and mathematics, also known as STEM, room.

"It's time for this remodel because the way students learn and the tools that they have available to them have changed over the years and we're moving to a one to one in our high school. We're already there in 7th and 8th grade and so we need to set it up, so that it's a productive environment," Superintendent Pat O'Donnell said. O'Donnell said "one to one" means each student in 7th through 12th grade will have laptops supplied to them by the school.

They hope to have the technology center complete by next year.
