Four seniors in the Computer Information Systems (CIS) program in the Career Tech Center at Greenville High School spent time this summer helping the district get ready for the school year. Kelsi Sleppy, Truong Nguyen, Zach Ditmar, and Austin Kruckeberg were hired to help with the imaging and setting up of over 230 new computers in all the district’s buildings. The students installed the computers and did all the network cabling for new computer labs in each of the five buildings of the district under the direction of the Network Administrators. They have just recently completed the installation of the remaining new computers by placing computers in the teachers’ classrooms at the Primary and Intermediate buildings. The students will be representing Greenville City Schools at the Ohio School Board Association (OSBA) conference at Columbus in November. This will be the third year in a row the CIS program has been asked to be a part of this conference. The program was selected as one of three programs in the state to be recognized as Outstanding by the OSBA at their October meeting.

Each summer, the juniors are given a chance to apply for a job over the summer. It provides a good hands-on learning experience for the students as well as much needed help in getting technology ready for a new school year. After school starts, they work on an “as needed” basis after the school day. CIS is a two-year program with an intense focus on computers and networking. It is a Cisco Networking Academy where students have the opportunity to earn up to 40 semester hours of college credit on a Sinclair or Edison transcript. CIS is also an Ohio Board of Regents CTAG program where the students earn credit that is guaranteed to be accepted at any public college in the state. The program is open to any junior or senior in Darke County. CIS is taught by Mr. Nathan Sharp and Mr. Robert Warner.
