Ohio Schools Increase Chromebook Count

By Dian Schaffhauser, THE Journal

Almost 500 new Chromebooks have been acquired by an Ohio district specifically for use by students in grades 3-5. The purchase by the Cleveland Heights-University Heights School District aligns with a goal in the school system’s strategic plan to “enhance current educational practices” by supporting “teachers and staff in acquiring additional resources for their classrooms.” This isn’t the first round of Chromebook purchases. The district originally deployed several carts of Dell and Acer Chromebooks in its high school for evaluation. According to local media coverage, those devices have been passed “down” to elementary school students; the high schoolers and middle school students are now using Apple iPads and MacBooks.
