Amazing tour of our Malden High School on December 2. I’m getting used to being sent to the principal’s office these days. I shockingly learned a lot of things that I couldn’t, while sitting in city hall. I learned about the extensive auto shop, the burgeoning American Sign Language course, the technology in the choral/theater arts room, the location of the swimming pool, a presentation in Mr Marques software engineering class, etc and so on. Lots of eye-opening details. Especially the cleanliness and database driven tech used to keep the school corridors as clear as possible during class periods. They are piloting cell phone monitoring tech to authorize/monitor student use/time, when moving from class to class or other non-classroom access to the hall, when not in class. A mighty “Thank You” to the superintendent, principals and the rest of her team. Fascinating time as our schools grow and evolve!
