The K-64 board approved a 1-to-World Technology pilot program during its monthly meeting Thursday.
The plan came out of the K-64 Technology Task Force chaired by Michael Ellwanger. The idea for the pilot program developed from input received from all three school systems, local business and community leaders.
The recommendation was to focus on Chromebooks for every seventh-grade student in Catawba County, across all three school districts. There will be digital content development within the Canvas learning management system and a common benchmark assessment in math or reading as well. The pilot project would roll out this coming spring semester.
