For the past few months, the new REMC1 Web Development team has been working alongside the CCISD to create and launch the new CCISD website. The new website is built on the popular Wordpress Content Management System (CMS). The website also meets Section 504 ADA compliance, which stands for “American’s with Disabilities Act”.

Steve Kass and Doug Mechlin attended the UP MACUL Conference on May 5th as part of their annual professional development.

Doug attended a session based on Project Based Learning in the classroom, and found the teacher's energy and positive excitement refreshing.

Take a look at Mrs. Gravaglia's web page to see what the presentation entailed.
