Microsoft Academy Program

Keystone Learning Services and Program Administrator Paul Crawford are pleased to announce their partnership with the KSDE to administer the Microsoft Academy Program in this area. Microsoft Academy bridges gap between the world of education and the world of work. It will boost Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) education statewide and the employability and global competitiveness of our students and future workforce.
Proposed project activities include:
1. Promote and market the Microsoft Academy Project in Kansas High Schools.
2. Provide Technical Assistance where applicable to schools focused on improving students' knowledge and skills in business and information technology through the Microsoft Academy.
3. Microsoft Academy testing sites (high schools) will be identified throughout the state where the certification exams will be administered. Each testing site will receive free-of-charge 50 copies of Microsoft 2010 or 2013 (whichever fits with the school's current IT platform).
4. JourneyEd , a company specializing in software program implementation will provide Microsoft Academy program training for Kansas educators. Continuing throughout the winter/spring months, the training will also focus on community outreach (e.g.students, parents, teachers, etc.), making them aware of the opportunity to gain Microsoft training and certifications at no charge.
Keystone will be setting up informational meetings soon.
Contact Paul Crawford for complete information: and phone# 785-876-2144 Ext# 215.
