Video Conference & Distance Learning Opportunities


Video Conference equipment provides an opportunity for students to participate in "Virtual Field Trips".  Campus are offered the opportunity to connect to lectures that are broadcasted from various places.  Students do not need to leave campus in order to "visit" a city or museum and speakers no longer have to travel to visit our campuses.  Our ECISD is able to participate in various types of programs via the Video Conference equipment purchased through ERATE funding. Many of  the "Virtual Field Trips" are free to the campuses.  We encourage you to take advantage of these incredible opportunities and experiences.
