What is the High Tech Center?

TECHNOLOGY FOR STUDENTS WITH DISABILITIES

FAQs: Frequently Asked Questions


Information is what schools offer. Sometimes a disability prevents a person from receiving this information in an ordinary way. The mission of the High Tech Center is to provide information access for those students. The technologies have been called electronic curbcuts, because a simple design change can dramatically improve a student’s learning experience.
