Introduction to Business

Business courses are offered in Tolland Public Schools in High School.  Students learn some keyboarding/word processing in the lower grades and by eighth grade should have learned appropriate fingering as well as MS Word, PowerPoint, Excel, and basic web page construction.  Courses in the high school are aimed at providing the opportunity for students to learn basic economic and consumer systems that play a central role in our society.  All business teachers monitor student learning numeracy - the application of mathematics to business and personal finances, and literacy - the ability to read, write, speak, listen, and view.
