The DeKalb Academy of Technology and the Environment (DATE) curriculum is a hands-on, minds-on, problem-solving, inquiry-based, integrated curriculum which will provide students with a foundation for understanding the world and their place in it. The environment, both natural and built, is the context for this curriculum, and technology is the means by which students will come to know, understand, and care for the environment which sustains us all.
Classroom instruction is aligned to the Georgia Standards of Excellence (www.georgiastandards.org)
With the unique technology school focus, all students should have access to a computer and the internet at home. When students are without a home computer, the following options will be available with parent participation:
A student may attend the after-school computer lab WITH their parent. This will be offered Monday – Thursday at DATE 4:00 – 6:30. Students will not be able to use the lab without parental permission.
DATE has a number of computers to loan students (based on availability) when needed. All requests should be made to the Technology Director, Mr. Charles Allen (firstname.lastname@example.org)
