Millcreek-West Unity Students To Receive Chromebooks

Here come the com­put­ers!

The Millcreek-West Unity Board of Edu­ca­tion on Tues­day approved an agree­ment to pro­vide some com­put­ers for stu­dents.

The dis­trict agreed to get 300 Chrome­books, enough for every stu­dent in grades 7–12. The total amount of the lease is $94,291, with the first year being paid through grant funds.

Stu­dents will have full use of the Chrome­books and turn them in at the end of the school year.

Many other school dis­tricts across the state and nation­ally are also mov­ing for­ward with com­put­ers for stu­dents. School offi­cials say com­put­ers will enhance edu­ca­tional oppor­tu­ni­ties for stu­dents in all walks of life.

Edu­ca­tors across the coun­try say com­put­ers are so inte­grated into daily life, that edu­ca­tion isn’t really com­plete any­more with­out them. Now, more local stu­dents will be able to move up and com­pete on that level.
