As part of its commitment to providing students and staff with innovative 21st-century instruction and technology tools, the district launched a 1:1 Chromebook rollout at Dodd. The initiative – Phase 3 of the Smart Schools Bond Act and part of the school’s “One-to-World” approach – was designed to provide each student and teacher with the technology resources to improve productivity, communication and collaboration. By providing each student with their own Chromebook, it will enable them to utilize programs such as Google Classroom, APPs and digital e-books to enhance the teaching and learning process.

“I’m excited about expanding our technology initiative in the Middle School,” said Superintendent of Schools Dr. Kishore Kuncham. “Freeport Public Schools offers our students excellent opportunities to learn and grow. Staff and students have already embraced the amazing possibilities and opportunities the Chromebooks provide in the classroom. The capabilities of 1:1 Chromebooks along with Google classroom will continue to enhance academic instruction and learning.”

“As a second-generation technology educator, I am beyond ecstatic that we are providing the tangible technology to the students at the middle school,” said technology teacher David Gordon. “It’s only the beginning of June and I am already eager to start our next school year with our techno-equipped students.”

“The Chromebook was a great investment for us since we’re living in an age full of technology,” said eighth-grader Kaileigh Adams. “Learning early how to use it will help us with our future.”

The rollout is a testament to the district’s dedication to educating the whole student and ensuring that they are equipped with the latest technological resources.
