Chevron Teaching Workshops!

"Continuing Our Academic Success"

In January 2007, Chevron began it's first phase of monetary donations to the Vermilion Parish Schools. LCD projectors were purchased and placed in every classroom in the parish to assist teachers with a multitude of lessons.  Once connected to a CPU, internet lessons are available and can be viewed class-wide with the projected image.  Available computer software also helps in the quest to guide teachers and students through effective teaching. 

A Region IV/Vermilion Parish database has been in the works since 2005 to help teachers locate effective resources online.  Another resource site, filled with graphic organizers and other helpful teaching Power Points, was created in the Summer of 2007. It was specifically geared toward the implementation of incoming projectors.  Both sites are geared toward assisting educators with locating productive links which correlate with the Louisiana Comprehensive Curriculum.

Teachers can use internet-ready services through Cyber Channel (formerly United Streaming) and other State/Parish services such as EBSCO.  A wide variety of other resources are being used daily with the new projectors in place.
