This article profiles the technology‐rich environment at Elsik High School in the Alief Intermediate School District on the west side of Houston. The district’s $16 million commitment to technology by 2001 is explored. The instructional benefits are featured by departments with a basic outline as to what students are doing in a strong instructional program that is technology‐based. Implementation ideas by departments are demonstrated from the art department to the sciences and social studies. After departments are highlighted, the technology available to the administrators, teachers, and staff is showcased. Online technologies, video distribution, and video conferencing are discussed. All of the technological tools and implementation of these tools into and across the curriculum demonstrate Elsik High School’s commitment to integrate technology into each and every classroom to better prepare students for the new millenium.
