    The technology lab is a part of the specials’ rotation.  All of the students at Parkside receive technology instruction once a week in the lab for 30 minutes.  In addition to their fixed time each week, teachers are encouraged to bring their classes to the lab in an effort to provide additional opportunities for the students to use technology at school.  Students are also permitted to come to the lab to complete independent assignments.
