MAHOPAC, N.Y.-The Mahopac Central School District rolled out its initiative to provide students in grades five through 12 with their own Chromebook laptops last week. The initiative to provide students with the cutting-edge technology will help make them “21st century leaders,” school officials said. In the lower grades, a Chromebook will be shared by every two students.

Training sessions were held for students, who said they were excited about using the laptops. John Resanovich, senior facilitator for instructional technology at Southern Westchester BOCES, was one of the experts on hand to help students in the middle school. His demonstrations of how they could move apps and use Google Drive for sharing documents were met by cries of “wow” and “awesome” from students, who were fascinated by the technology.
