St. John the Baptist School participates in the MDK12 Digital Library Project which is a partnership of Maryland public school districts and participating nonpublic schools. The goal of the project is to form a statewide purchasing consortium to ensure cost-effective access to appropriate electronic resources for all students.
In order to use electronic resources as instructional tools in the classroom, for use at home, and to be copyright compliant, our school subscribes to many online resources. Without participation in the consortium, however, it would not be possible to afford access to all these services. It is important that St. John’s parents and students support this partnership through learning about the resources, encouraging use at home, and helping support use of appropriate sites and, in general, responsible internet use at home.
SJB’s ONLINE RESOURCES
Below is the list of online services to which our school subscribes through the MDK12 Digital Library. These are managed by the library. There are other resources as well. You may connect to the services below by using the home access codes attached to Tuesday notes home at the beginning of the year. Please keep these instructions near your computer for easy access.
