As part of White Settlement ISD's technology initiative, every Brewer High School student received a new Dell laptop for school and home use this year.
Previously, high schoolers received iPads for home and school use, and students at all other campuses had access to mobile iPad carts.
"We wanted to increase the number of students who were using technology in the classroom and give our high schoolers a chance to use a new technology platform," said Superintendent Frank Molinar.
"It's vital that we transform how we teach to ensure that all of our students have constant access to information, become critical thinkers, talented problem solvers, and efficient collaborators and communicators."
Starting this year, every middle school student received a new Dell laptop for school use, and the iPads were redistributed to the kindergarten through sixth grade classes so these students have more 1 to 1 access. All Tannahill Intermediate fifth and sixth graders received an iPad for classroom use.
Molinar said, "Teaching students via multiple technology platforms empowers our kids with the ability and resources necessary to be globally competitive."
