DTC donates computers to BEHS

The computers were presented to the high school by the college. The computers were made available under Title III federal funding through the College Cost Reduction Authorization Act, which the college receives.

The computers will be used by students to assess their college readiness through COMPASS testing. Additionally, the computers will have the Kuder Career Planning System installed on them to further prepare students in achieving their educational and career goals.

Bamberg County is one of the three counties within DTC’s service area. The college also serves Allendale and Barnwell counties. All seven high schools in DTC’s three-county service area will each receive five new computers, Bias said.

“Students can use the computers for various types of academic support, but the primary goal is to assess college readiness. The outcomes from the COMPASS testing will provide important information needed to evaluate students in reading, writing, and math for placement decisions and curriculum alignment,” Bias said.

Randy Maxwell, the principal at Bamberg-Ehrhardt, lauded DTC for the computers. “We always want to work closely with Denmark Tech. They have provided economic cost benefits for our students like remediation and dual enrollment,” Maxwell said.

The computers will also be used by the students for general research as they are connected to the Internet, Maxwell said.
