Board Approves Devices for Classrooms

The Denton ISD School Board recently approved a four-year, $6.4 million rollout plan to provide our students with digital learning devices. This decision follows a collaborative effort by our Curriculum & Instruction and Technology Divisions that took place over several months that included interviews with teachers, students and administrators about learning in today’s digital environment. With these recommendations in mind, the board approved Chromebooks for fourth grade, fifth grade and secondary social studies classrooms for the 2016-17 school year. Teachers will receive Chromebooks and training during the spring semester to prepare for the new digital classroom standard.  To support the digital classroom initiative our networking engineers are upgrading the network infrastructure throughout the district. “The boost in wireless access will greatly benefit our new Chromebook users”, says Chris Langford, WAN Manager at Denton ISD.
