The June 12 meeting of the Eden Valley-Watkins school board was the first using its new digital BoardBook system. All board documents are available now online, saving time and supplies.
The district is very pleased with their recent purchase of five seats on OdysseyWare. The online software allows up to five students at any one time to utilize the curriculum and program to recover credits. It is used for summer school as well. Principal Kiehn expected six students, but they got 15 this summer. Some of the work must be completed at the school, but some can be done from home (or wherever) by the students at any time. The school monitors progress and activity of the students.
