District Chromebook Pilot is Wired and Ready to Go!
In January 2019, the Achieve Foundation provided $8,500 to help the district pilot a Device Loaner Project at Columbia HS. The 25 Chromebooks, hotspots, licensing, equipment and Chromebook Cart purchased will allow students who do not have access at home, the ability to borrow Chromebooks and hotspots through the library/media center and guidance dept. [Forms available in guidance and the library]
Since a Chromebook Cart holds 32 devices, we set out to fund the purchase of an additional 7 chromebooks, hotspots and accessories. Our efforts during the various Nights of 100 Dinners events have raised over $3,000 toward "Completing the Cart" and we hope to raise even more in the coming weeks.
Once the first lending cart is fully funded, donations will go towards additional carts and other resources needed to close the digital divide in the South Orange-Maplewood schools. Click here if you'd like to help.
Scholastic Book CLubs have arrived at CHS Library!
PLEASE support the library . Every purchase earns us points ( which in turn can be used to buy books) and free items for the library. Visit http://clubs.scholastic.com , and register for an account.
