We have four full-time com- puter teachers on campus. They teach IBCA, which is an intro- ductory computer/keyboarding course, and next year, students will be able to earn an indus- try-based certification in this course. We also offer Entrepreneur- ship, Webmastering, Digital Graphics, and Principles of Business. Every core area and special education classroom has six computers, and there are three full-service computer labs on campus, as well as five portable computer laptop carts that teachers use. I respect your opinion to vote no on the tax; however, please feel free to call me if you have any questions about what will be offered in the curriculum at PHS. We really do provide an excellent education, and I don't want the public confused about the course offerings. Thanks for all you do!
