Assistant Superintendent, Kyle Arlington presented a thorough and informative explanation of our plans for the rollout of the school district’s Anytime Anywhere Chromebook digital conversion at Monday’s BOE meeting. He made the case for the necessity of providing 1:1 computing for our students, as well as addressing some concerns that have been raised by staff and parents.
Mr. Arlington’s presentation emphasizes that integrating technology into our curriculum keeps us on par with comparable districts and private schools. It is also one more prong in our efforts to provide our students with the survival skills of the 21st-century. Food for thought … as Mr. Arlington noted: “Our current Kindergarteners, and students entering school in the next few years, will live into the 22nd Century. It is our responsibility to provide them with a school-experience that is preparatory, rigorous & cutting edge.”
