Henrico 21 Success!
Thank you to everyone who joined us for this year's Henrico 21 Opening Ceremony and Student Showcase

The department staff includes instructional technology specialists and instructional technology resource teachers who provide consultation, training and support for the integration of technology into the instructional program. Henrico 21 is the overarching concept that embodies this work.
