Information Technology (IT) is the study, design, development, implementation, support or management of computer-based information systems, particularly software applications and computer hardware.  Informatics is the career major offered for this program area.  Students will apply software systems such as Excel, Access and other industry software to acquire, collect, store and communicate data in meaningful ways. Students will manage projects, work in teams, think critically, solve problems and propose solutions to design problems.

Students must take all four courses to complete the Informatics career major.  Upon completing three credits, students will work on obtaining their Microsoft Office Specialist industry certification.  Students will take assessments in PowerPoint, Access, and Excel in order to obtain their certification.  Students may intern their senior year once they have completed all four courses or have obtained three credits and are scheduled in their capstone class - Developing a Cloud Presence.  Students must maintain a "B" average, have good attendance, and be approved by the teacher and assistant principal. Although the student is not compensated for the work done through the internship, it provides valuable hands-on work experience in a supervised setting.
