Do you need extra planning time? Do you need to know
more about using technology in your classroom? Do you need someone
to show you how? Do you feel like you’re being “hounded” by an
urgent need to join the technology generation? If you answered “yes”
to any of the above, then the PET Project is for you!
The PET Project has been established to assist classroom teachers in
developing standards-based instructional units that integrate
technology. Teachers in Fayette County Public Schools come as a team
to work with curriculum and technology resource teachers to develop
these units. These same resource teachers will assist the teachers
with the implementation of the unit.
Data from the last two years show the project to be highly
successful for schools that participated! For example, we found that
schools that show the most improvement on CATS were more than twice
as likely to participate in PET last year. We will continue to make
a strong emphasis on literacy during the project.
