Clark Internet Services in educational partnership

Clark Internet Services signed an educational partnership with Centennial Lane Elementary School last week to help the pupils learn about using the World Wide Web.

"This will bring the school into the 21st century, four years early," said James. H. Clark, president of the company, through a sign language interpreter. Mr. Clark said his daughters eventually will attend Centennial Lane.

The agreement was signed in a brief ceremony Thursday before the Howard County school board's meeting. Clark Internet Services is a local Internet provider based in Ellicott City.

The partnership "will enable students and staff to become familiar with the use of telecommunications tools," said Paula Blake, coordinator of school-business relations. "Clark Internet Services will provide the opportunity to explore the educational sites on the World Wide Web, making a variety of research opportunities available to students and staff."

Ms. Blake said Centennial Lane students also will have a chance to visit Clark Internet's offices to see its computer facilities.
