North Hopkins ISD has a tradition of excellence and high expectations for learning with contemporary technology tools for their classrooms. They have cultivated a culture of excellence that is strategically focused on providing innovative tools and interactive applications to engage their students at any level or learning style. Their school was actually one of the first in Texas to provide 1:1 Macintosh devices for their students several years ago. Dr. Jolly and his team are always seeking strategies to improve their school and personalize each student’s learning experience.
It seems as if the whole school could agree that having the new Promethean boards from CPI has shifted the way the children are learning and retaining lesson material. Getting students actively involved in the learning process is easy because of the touch screen capabilities of the Promethean board. The software allows students to get hands-on experience in classroom material- learning is no longer a spectator's event.
In an interview with CPI, North Hopkins' ISD Superintendent, Dr. Darin Jolly spoke highly of the transformation that their school has experienced since implementing over 30 Promethean boards into their secondary school. He explained that student engagement has “quickly escalated since [their] recent installation and implementation of [their] 75 inch Promethean boards in all secondary classrooms in December of 2018.” Dr. Jolly explained that “peer to peer collaboration has advanced cooperative learning strategies with Promethean split screen options and scientific apps for dissection.”
“I’m thankful for the great relationship that North Hopkins ISD shares with CPI of Sulphur Springs, Texas. From the onset, CPI came to our district with extreme measures of customer service, asking “How can we help you?” from technology advancement, copy/print operations, document storage, and even safety considerations with security cameras on campuses and buses. As an alumnus of North Hopkins High School, Heather Brown has firsthand experience and perspective for excellence in our school, heightened now as a parent of three students in our school district. Her personalized perspective for excellence in our school has streamlined our educational advancements with CPI as a result of her authentic care for the best of our students in our culture high expectations for learning.”
