What is Legacy’s technology use policy?
Legacy is a low-tech school by design. The effective implementation of comprehensive classical curriculum does not require the use of technology. Additionally, there are significant concerns related to the overuse of technology by children. Thus, Legacy will only use technology for a clearly designed purpose and for a set amount of time, which will be primarily fo typing papers in upper grades.
