UCEC in the News

Union County Early College has been given a whole new level of exposure; with a recent feature on the WBTV local Charlotte news station. The topic of the story was Cyber Safety. A news crew came to UCEC last week to film students utilizing their new Chromebooks. The reporters asked a few questions regarding how the students felt having the new resources and what sort of protocols they had to follow in order to maintain laptop privileges. Included in the video on the WBTV website was an interview with Scott Jacumin, Head of Instructional Technology for Union County, in which he explained how the new school devices are filtered for safe student use.
