iSchool Campus Launches New Smart School® in Port Richey, Florida
Florida legislative leaders gather at Dayspring Academy to focus on success of the whole-school technology model and to push for statewide technology programs
iSchool Campus™, the leading integrator of Smart School technology, has completed its 20th whole-school technology deployment at Dayspring Academy Middle School in Port Richey, Florida. The new Smart School was highlighted in a special event for Florida legislators, school administrators, and media representatives. Dayspring Academy, a charter school for 6th – 8th grade students, recently implemented the Smart School comprehensive technology program and has seen significant gains in student engagement and performance. The Dayspring deployment marks iSchool Campus’ entry into the State of Florida. Other iSchool Campus deployments include public, private and charter schools in Utah, Idaho, Colorado, Nevada and New Hampshire.
The Florida Digital Classroom day, attended by Florida House Speaker Will Weatherford and Senate Education Committee Chairman John Legg, highlighted the successes being realized in educational technology programs throughout the state of Florida, particularly in those focused on one-to-one mobile device deployments.
School Principal Sara Calleja noticed an immediate increase in student engagement once the school implemented the Smart School program. “Our students have definitely been more engaged and interactive since the deployment,” Calleja stated. “In addition, we have seen fewer discipline problems and disruptions in the classroom. The whole school technology program has allowed our teachers and students the ability to focus on new methods of interactive curriculum delivery and engaged learning.”
“As the leading provider of whole-school technology, iSchool Campus is proud of our work with Dayspring Academy, and looks forward to further expansion in Florida and other key markets,” stated William Nixon, CEO of iSchool Campus. “Our model offers advanced digital learning environments that directly speak to the native abilities of today’s students. We are extremely encouraged by the initial success of Dayspring Academy, and congratulate them on their vision and leadership as Florida continues to support innovative education technology initiatives.”
