USD 235 ready to launch tech initiative when seniors return

Thursday, June 13, 2013

The beginning of the 2013-2014 school year at Uniontown will reflect a change in the way students learn after the USD 235 Board of Education approved a technology initiative last week.

When high school seniors return to school, they each will be handed a Chromebook.

"They (the board) approved the pilot program at the high school, which provides the senior class Chrome books," USD 235 Superintendent Randy Rockhold said. "We are going to use Google apps and a classroom management system called ePal."

Rockhold also said the board approved the purchase of Macbook Pros and iPads for teachers at the high school.
