How can internet technology support the work of California’s Model Continuation High Schools and help at-risk students complete their education? That was the challenge 1000 Paces helped tackle through the creation of MCHSnet, a Class Drive-powered toolset connecting several of the Model Continuation High Schools.
How does a group of innovative, small high schools share curriculum, access Diploma Plus competencies and assess students in the 21st Century? A Class Drive suite of communication and curriculum tools is just the answer, and that is where the Commonwealth Corporation turned to help their Diploma Plus high schools.
One-to-one ("1:1") laptop initiatives are programs seeking to give every student a laptop computer and structure their learning environment around it. Class Drive includes everything a 1:1 school needs to succeed. Tools to create websites, a drop box for assignments, online portfolios and a performance-based assessment system are all included.

Tech Goes Home
The city of Boston has recognized that there are profound inequities in access to technology in many of its communities. Through the Tech Goes Home initiative, 1000 Paces is helping to bridge this gap and achieve Boston’s goal of becoming a “21st century digital city.”
Public School districts are facing ever-increasing performance requirements with fewer and fewer resources. 1000 Paces has taken on the challenge of working with JFYNet to design and implement real world, cost-effective instructional packages that address actual teaching and learning needs in the classroom.
