Black History Week was started in 1926 by historian Carter G. Woodson. In 1976, President Gerald Ford designated February as Black History Month. Ford noted the need to ensure that the contributions of African-Americans were recognized at a time when history books, schools, media and society did little to acknowledge their contributions. Many Shorecrest classrooms have highlighted the significant and important contributions of black people from around the world and throughout history.
Shorecrest is proud of its longstanding commitment to innovation, technology integration and preparing students for their futures. In the multi-touch book found here, experience the Shorecrest journey of educational technology and innovation from its 1923 humble roots to its 2016-2018 Apple Distinguished School recognition and 2018-2021 reinstatement as an Apple Distinguished School. The book illustrates how each day, in ways large and small, learning with Apple technology helps the Shorecrest community collaborate, communicate, take risks, and think differently.
