Web Design Introduced at High School

Sheridan Media reporter Pat Blair continues her look at Sheridan County School District 2's computer science program.

After learning about coding and how to apply what they're learning in the real world in elementary and junior high school, students in Sheridan County School District 2 find even more opportunities to advance when they enter high school.

Mitch Craft, who's an assistant superintendent with the school district, said the high school starts offering web design courses.

Craft said there's also an introduction to computer science as well as classes in computer science principles and AP computer science principles.

In addition, Craft said, students can take college courses through dual enrollment with Sheridan College. He said that allows the students to complete some of the required college courses while they're still in high school.

The computer courses are offered not only at Sheridan High School but at the John C. Schiffer Collaborative School, the district's alternative school.

Craft said one of the district's teachers who has been actively training and teaching the web design and computer science courses at Sheridan High School will be at Schiffer part-time this year, teaching the introduction to computer science course.

He said the district will also this year be able to offer more to the Schiffer students through elective courses. Craft said there have also been students at Schiffer in the past who have taken computer classes through Sheridan College.
