The West Central School Corporation is moving along in becoming a one-to-one computing school. Superintendent Charles Mellon stated that the board made a decision concerning the type of device being used for the initiative and have placed an order for those devices.
“We’re beginning that with the middle school next fall,” explained Mellon. “The ChromeBook is what we will be using and that’s become a very hot item. They’re kind of back logged with orders so we wanted to place an order for 270 ChromeBooks. We wanted to get the paperwork rolling and have those computers here by fall. The board did approve that as well.”
The program will begin with middle school students with the anticipation that it will branch out to more grade levels after the initial rollout.
