Louisiana launches Microsoft IT Academy at public high schools
Louisiana today became the fifth state to implement the Microsoft IT Academy Program at all public high schools across the state, the Louisiana Department of Education says. The program provides students and teachers with "real-world technology skills needed to thrive in the 21st century global economy" via access to online learning content, official Microsoft course materials, and instructor resources and support materials that include lesson plans, software licenses, and professional, industry-recognized certifications. There are more than 10,000 Microsoft IT Academy Program members in over 160 countries. The first phase of Louisiana's program is being implemented in 21 school districts today, including East Baton Rouge Parish. All remaining public high schools will implement the program by the end of the fall semester.
