For the past several years we have provided Google Chromebooks to our high school students. After each senior graduates, we move those Chromebooks to the Jr.High to help get technology in the hands of as many students as possible. The Chromebooks and the access they will provide to each student and the web will allow us to not only integrate more technology into your child's learning experiences, it will also provide additional opportunities for students to collaborate, communicate, create, and apply critical thinking skills in their learning.
To help you understand the benefits this has provided along with quality teaching I wanted to share a couple of accomplishments our students and staff have obtained. Central ISD was one of 61 school districts in the state of Texas to earn Postsecondary Readiness Distinction by TEA. A huge honor!! Second, for two years in a row Central seniors have collected over $1,000,000 in scholarships and grants.
Clearly we are making a move to have technology be an integral part of your child's education and will require that your child have the appropriate technology at school to support his/her learning.
Thank you in advance for your support of this significant learning initiative.
