The West Central School Corporation will be rolling off its one-to-one computer initiative this coming school year.
An update on the project was given during last week’s school board meeting. Superintendent Charles Mellon said Technology Coordinator Rob Evans and Kris Aschbrenner gave the update to the board.
“We had had a lot of one-to-one initiatives going on preparing for the upcoming school year and those two gentlemen as well as a couple of students appear to have everything in line and ready to go,” said Mellon.
Mellon added that the equipment is ready to go and a lot of time was spent in the month of June with staff in-service days to prepare them for the start of school.
“It was for the middle school staff. We’re putting computers in the hands of our middle school students – grades six through eight. A lot of time was spent this summer in preparation for that.”
The one-to-one computer initiative will begin for the middle school students on the first day of school, Aug. 14.
