Eastern Featured

Eastern Howard School Corporation has invested heavily in the future or your students and their education. Our corporation and our 1:1 program have hosted many site visits, presented at state and national conferences, and helped to push education in new directions. Today we are pleased to share that Apple Education has released a new document outlining the impact of 1:1 deployments on education, and Eastern Howard has contributed information to the publication.

We encourage you to check out the entire document, as it holds information from different schools about how their test scores and performance has increased through the implementation of technology in their schools. Eastern’s contribution to the publication can be found on page 13 of the document.

You can directly access the document at this link.

New Site Tour

Welcome to the new Eastern Howard School Corporation website. We are happy you are visiting. You may have noticed that our web presence has changed. We hope you feel as we do; change, while sometimes difficult at first, is a good thing. While most areas of our site are the same as they have been, the look and feel has changed. The mobile look is particularly different from our previous site. If you are having trouble getting around the site we would encourage you to look at some of the videos below. They are short and will be updated as the site matures in the coming months. Thanks again for showing interest in Eastern. We love being Comets!
