• CEC Resources 

    The CEC houses an extensive collection of artifacts, videos, CDs, books, learning trunks and professional resources available for check out by staff as well as assistance in how to use resources in the classroom. We also offer several online curricula and Digital Suitcases that are aligned to state social studies standards. The CEC is also available for class visits focusing on a variety of topics.

    Step 2: Once you have decided which materials you would like to borrow, fill out a request form.

    Step 3: You will receive a request form submittal email, followed by an email from CEC staff confirming your request and delivery instructions. Items can either be picked up from the CEC or delivered using the district delivery service. Check-out period is two-weeks.
