Information Center


The Information Specialist selects and organizes multimedia materials to supplement the classroom teacher's instructional program. Lessons and story times are a regular part of the school year activities. The information center also uses technology for research projects.

For more information on the DoDEA Information Centers as well as resources and publications for parents please visit the DoDEA HQ Information Center site.

The purpose of the Information/Media Center is to support the entire school curriculum and to reflect the philosophy, goals, and objectives. The Information Center provides support in intellectual and physical access to information as well as provides students opportunities to expand their world by using various media and technology resources.

All students, parents and faculty have access to the Information/Media Center. Students may go to the Media Center alone or in small groups; or teachers may arrange to bring their classes for special research projects.
