In my role as the Instructional Media Specialist with Catholic Telemedia Network (CTN), I have had the opportunity to spend a great amount of time in the diocesan schools. The teachers and administrators I have met throughout my school visits have been very warm and welcoming. I cannot speak highly enough of the faculty members teaching in the diocesan schools. They are full of energy and eager to implement new and engaging strategies and techniques into their lessons.

CTN implemented a new initiative, the Focus School Program, this school year. Focus Schools are chosen to receive tailored attention from CTN. These schools are active users of technology and are eager to implement digital learning, aligned with the Common Core, into their lesson and unit plans. Focus School teachers receive one-on-one support from CTN in the use and integration of our three instructional media services: Learn360, Espresso, and Mathletics. These services contain content aligned with the Common Core and engaging activities for students in grades PreK-8. New schools will be inducted into the Focus School program as it continues beyond this year.
