With the introduction of Chromebooks for every student in grades 3 through 12, Greenville County Schools is expanding and enhancing the way teachers instruct and students learn.
The district began the Chromebook rollout today, and plans to continue to implement the personalized learning initiative for every third through twelfth grader over the next three years.
Schools receiving Chromebooks this year are Bell's Crossing Elementary, Berea Middle, Brushy Creek Elementary, Buena Vista Elementary, Mauldin Elementary, Mauldin Middle, Mauldin High, Mitchell Road Elementary, Northwood Middle, and Stone Elementary Academy.
Scott Rhymer, principal of Mauldin High, is excited about the possibilities for teachers and students. “We are the first high school in Greenville County to get Chromebooks,” he said. “They are tools that will change the game for our students and our teachers by enhancing student learning and helping take students to a higher level.”
Mauldin High received 2,409 Chromebooks and plans to distribute them to students after Labor Day.
By introducing the use of technology in every subject area, personalized learning gives students equal access to technology, provides more opportunities for student engagement, and supports the district’s Graduation Plus initiative focusing on college and career readiness for all students.
