IC3 Spark Enrichment Program
IC3 Spark is an enrichment program that allows fifth grade students the opportunity to enter middle school with an Industry Certification in Digital Literacy! Invitations are sent home to select students based on data collection of classwork, work habits, and test scores.
This program focuses on three main components: living safely online, key applications (Word, PowerPoint, Excel), and basic computing skills. Most of the sessions will be self-paced; however, we will also focus on certain topics whole group during our practice sessions.
Blanton is one of just a few elementary schools that offer this special program. When your child is ready they will take the state certification exam at Blanton free of charge! This timeline will be different for each student. Once your child passes the certification test, their course will be complete and they will “graduate” from this session with an Industry Certification in Digital Literacy!
Students must pass the state certification test to receive their IC3 Digital Literacy Certification.
