APPLE DISTINGUISHED PROGRAM
2015 TECHNOLOGY TRAININGS
The Floydada Independent School District provides a technology rich environment for all students and staff. All students at FISD are provided with a laptop and other technologies during their school day to enhance their learning opportunities. Students in grades 6 through 12 have access to their laptops 24 hours a day, seven days a week during the school year. The district has been chosen by Apple Inc. as an Apple Exemplary Program for the past 9 years. FISD is proud of this honor and they recognize that these accomplishments mean they must work hard to train new students and staff and continue ongoing trainings for all students and staff so they are able to use the technologies to their fullest potential.
