Wilmington Schools to give chromebook to each student

The Wilmington Schools have launched a four year rollout of 1:1 Chromebook program which means one chromebook for each student. This chromebook program will go until 2019 and each Wilmington student in Grades 6 through 12 will be required to bring a Google Chromebook to school.

The program will commence coming August and all the Grade 9 students will have to bring their own chromebooks to WHS. Parents will be notified soon of this change. Neal Ellis, director of technology explained the timeline as follows:

* Year #1 (2016-2017): Grade 9 begin bringing Chromebooks
* Year #2 (2017-2018): Grades 8 and 9 begin bringing Chromebooks (Grades 8, 9 and 10 covered overall)
* Year #3 (2018-2019): Grades 7 and 8 begin bringing Chromebooks (Grades 7, 8, 9, 10, and 11 covered overall)
* Year #4 (2019-202): Grades 6 and 7 begin bringing Chromebooks (Grades 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, and 12 covered overall)

Fortunately, Chromebooks are not as expensive as windows 10 laptops and while there are few cheap windows 10 laptops under 200, they come with low storage space and just do not run the OS smoothly as Chromium OS.
