Chrome Books Help Local Kids Prepare for the Future
We continue to focus on education projects in Monroe County. One of our recent grants was to fund the purchase of an additional Google Chrome Book system (laptop cart and 28 additional Chrome Books) for Clarendon Public Schools.
The teachers have addressed the need for more, as it has revolutionized the textbook and the classroom, leading to more timely and meaningful feedback between the students and teachers. Another selling point for the Chrome Books is that it all ties into Common Core testing, and all Common Core testing will be computerized, so it prepares the student for that type testing.
With only about 40 percent of our students having computer or internet access at home, this grant and the purchase of these additional Chrome books will further help these students to prepare for the next level, whether it be college or the workplace.
