1:1 Laptop Initiative

Business Careers was the first wireless high school in the greater San Antonio area.  All BCHS students are issued a laptop for use at school and at home.   With this wireless initiative, Business Careers High School has been able to integrate technology into the curriculum allowing students and staff to stay abreast of cutting edge technology.  The laptops provide BCHS students the opportunity to take on-line courses which enable them to take the learning environment beyond the classroom and prepare them for college.

Goals of the 1:1 Initiative

  • Improving student academic achievement through appropriate use of technology
  • Increasing the market ability and academic competitiveness of BCHS students by preparing them more effectively for today’s technology-driven workplaces and universities
  • Increasing equity of access to technology and digital resources by BCHS students, thereby reducing the digital divide
  • Improving the quality of student-centered, differentiated instruction at BCHS
  • Utilizing technology to assist BCHS in becoming the premier business magnet school in the nation
