What is the SMART Desk?

The SMART Desk is an available elective class for students in all grade levels. SMART Desk was formed in the 2014-15 school year. The original SMART Desk staff consisted of Luke Artnak, Alex Brufsky, Kevin Chen, Mike Debski, Austin Himler, Riley Kohler, Tyler Lamb, Brian Potts, and Nick Wylie.

What does the SMART Desk do?

The SMART Desk provides technical support for both students and staff of the high school. All of our work is aligned toward the ISTE Standard for Students, which we use to guide our learning. A techie is usually available from mods 1/2 to mods 15/16 every day. We all are here to help, so feel free to approach us with any issues you have! You can also fill out a support request on this website by clicking the “Request Support” button in the menu at the top of this page.
