Through this Initiative, Nebraska high school students can earn certification in Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Access at the specialist and expert levels. The Nebraska focus for the 2014-2015 school year is Word and Excel certifications. Becoming certified validates that Nebraska students have the information technology skills they will need for college and career in today’s technology-centered job market. Dr. Darci Karr and Joyce Sadd are the Business teachers at HHS who are involved in this Initiative.
The Nebraska State Legislature appropriated $250,000 in funds to support the implementation of the Microsoft IT initiative in Nebraska high schools during the 2014-2015 school year. From these funds, each participating school received 500 Certiport MOS (Microsoft Office Specialist) exams and 10 teacher vouchers, computer software upgrades up to Microsoft 2013, plus access to Microsoft online teaching resources.
Nebraska’s Microsoft IT Initiative is connecting students and teachers through leading-edge technology skills development. This program will bridge the skills gap by providing the curriculum, the training foundation, and the validation of information technology skills.
