In exciting news: our 5th graders got laptops on February 19, 2020!
Each student is assigned his/her own laptop to use during the day. This will eliminate lots of problems switching in and out of their Office365 accounts on multiple user devices. The teachers reported a huge increase in writing yesterday with their new tools!
This was made possible by the generous support from the MPE Foundation combined with our School Governance Council’s choice to use flexible funds for technology. Having the 1:1 devices in 5th grade will allow us to distribute the rest of our technology more generously in grades K-4. We look forward to rolling out new iPads in those grades over the next few weeks.
