The media-technology program prepares dynamic learners in an information rich environment to be resourceful, reflective, and responsible readers and users of information.
The Enloe High School Media-Technology program will encourage critical reading, acquire valuable resources, engage learners to interpret, evaluate, transform and present information to support faculty and students in the equitable and ethical use of information.
Students are welcome to use the facility before school, during lunch, after school, and during class time. Students coming to the Media Center during class time must have a signed pass from their teacher. Passes for entry during lunch can be obtained from any teacher on campus or students may also use their schedules and IDs between classes to show that it is their lunch period. Once students come to the Media Center, they must stay for the remaninder of the period.
Staff are welcome to plan together with the media staff in order to make the best use of resources and to have, as a result, successful assignments.
