NFA Marist ECHS Scholars Receive Laptops to Enhance Learning


Scholars enrolled in the NFA Marist Early College High School (ECHS) program received laptops to enhance their learning. The laptops have programs that are required for the college courses. NECSD and Marist launched the partnership program in the summer of 2018. Prior to beginning classes, scholars and their families visited Marist College and received a tour of the building where their classes will be primarily located. 

The NECSD Marist ECHS scholars will be enrolled in computer science and math courses that will allow them to earn 26 credits from Marist throughout their four years of high school. Scholars are scheduled for the college level classes at NFA’s Main campus during the school year and will take a course each summer at Marist. Essential to student success are the academic and socio-emotional support systems included in the design of this program. Each student will benefit from close, authentic relationships with counselors and mentors who will follow them through to graduation. Daily extended learning time will provide the academic help and dedicated work time students need to complete assignments. Each cohort of 30 students will create an individual education plan with the help of administrators, faculty, counselors, mentors and parents that focuses on readiness for college and career.

Earlier this year, the district rolled out a 1:1 initiative. All scholars in grades 3-10 received Chromebooks as part of the 1:1 device initiative. In the upcoming weeks, some scholars will begin bringing their devices home to continue their learning outside of the classroom. Scholars in grades 11-12 are able to bring their own device to school and also have access to devices as needed.
