WDMCS Becomes 1:1 District

Next year, the WDMCS will provide a Chromebook for every student in grades 3-12.

On Feb. 13, 2017, the WDMCS Board of Education unanimously approved a proposal to reallocate the district’s current Chromebook inventory of more than 5,000 devices from carts directly to students.

The project will be funded by existing curriculum funds and district technology funds. By reducing the number of classroom desktops and computer labs over time, existing funding sources will cover the costs to maintain students devices on a four-year cycle.  Support, repairs, check-in procedures, and more will be managed using the existing systems that were implemented for the district’s New Tech Schools.

For more information for parents and students will be coming shortly.
