The Long Beach School District’s Technology Program is aligned to the NYS Technology Learning Standards and the NYS Core Curricula


Technology courses are open to all students.  In the middle school, students take their first course in technology in grade 6 and one year of technology in grades 7- 8.  In the high school, courses may be taken for elective credit or as part of a 5-unit program.

You should experience one or more of these courses to help you prepare for the future. Take this opportunity to work with your hands as well as your mind and explore different technologies using specialized tools and equipment in a variety of laboratories.
