Academic Content Standards Technology in the Lab/Classroom Satellites Aerospace Academy The Aerospace Academy has a 16 workstation computer lab for students. The hardware specifications are PIII 1 Ghz/256MB/20GB. Software specifications are Windows XP/SP2/Office 2003. The workstations provide aviation training software called Fliteschool Instrument Pilot and Private Pilot. The Aerospace Academy provides printing capability to students to a networked monochrome laser printer and a networked color laser printer. Students have access to an Elite Systems flight simulator with full controls, audio, and a three panel (72” ea) display driven by three xvga projectors. The simulator requires five PIV class computers. The Aerospace Academy is located at the Warren County Airport and connects back to the main campus via a point to point T1 line. All computers are members of Active Directory and students have access to network storage and services including Internet. The Aerospace Academy desires a computer lab upgrade for student access and improved software performance. Business Technology Tech Prep The Business Technology Tech Prep program is currently offered as a satellite at Little Miami High School. Their student lab has 25 student workstations with hardware specifications of CelD 3.0 GHz/1GB/80GB and software specifications of Windows XP SP2/Office XP/Macromedia Suite 8. The Business Technology Tech Prep program follows the curricular offerings of their partner, Sinclair Community College and systems are ready for the upgrade to Microsoft Office 2007, which the district has licensing for through the Microsoft School Agreement. Students have access to a networked monochrome laser printer, network attached storage, and networked lessons and materials including business simulations. The lab also has a laptop and projector/screen for presentations and competition. This program prepares students for the Microsoft Office Specialist (MOS) certification. Equine Science The Equine Science program has its laboratory environment held at the Lebanon Raceway. There students receive hands-on instruction in caring for horses and maintaining stables. The use of technology is limited to academic courses where students study Anatomy & Physiology in addition to required courses. The Instructor has a laptop for portability, however, there is no wireless Internet Access currently available at the Raceway. Exercise Science The Exercise Science program is a satellite program at Franklin High School. The lab features a multimedia home theatre environment with DVD, Stereo, VHS, projector, and large screen. There are 14 student workstations with Internet and printer access. The program has a digital camera and multifunction color printer with a scanner and digital card reader. Students use the technology for presentations, for exercise videos and training, and for research projects and electronic portfolios. Project Gateway The Project Gateway program is a satellite housed at Miami University Middletown and is targeted at providing an alternative pathway to a high school diploma for students who have dropped out. The program has 10 student workstations and a networked monochrome laser printer. Students use PlATO software to complete courses onine and recover lost credits toward the diploma requirements at their home high school. Veterinary Science The veterinary Science Program was new in 2006 and is housed at the Warren County Humane Society which has a DSL connection for Internet Access. Due to the lack of wiring at the facility, WCCC placed an 802.11B wireless Access Point in the facility and outfitted the program with a 16 workstation laptop cart plus four additional laptops. The lab has a portable smartboard, projector, and speakers. Students use the Internet for research and use Microsoft Office for productivity and presentations. The curriculum for the program called for a comprehensive Veterinary Science software package for student training and enrichment. The lab has a monochrome laser printer with a wireless print server. Greentree Health Science Academy The Greentree Health Science Academy is a partnership with Butler Tech Career Technical Center and Miami University Middletown. Currently, all technology planning for this academy falls under the administration of Butler Tech Career Technical Center.
