The amazing Board of Trustees and Superintendent of Burleson ISD approved a 1:1 Chromebook roll out for students in 3rd-8th grade for the 16-17 school year. We were thrilled that they wanted to take this initiative to so many students. That meant we had to pull together and everyone got hands-on with prepping and distributing the devices. We just squeaked in under our CTO’s deadline of having all of the Chromebooks out in the first six weeks…but we did it! Next year we’ll use what we’ve learned to roll out Chromebooks to all 9-12th graders! You can see our full gallery HERE – put here are some highlights!

Even our Superintendent, Dr. Jimerson, came by to hand out a few Chromebooks and joke around with the kids.

We’ve learned a lot about rolling out such a large number of devices…but now we can’t wait to get into our teachers’ classrooms and help them really take their teaching to the next level with these tools at their disposal! Whew!
