Shelby High School receives grant to buy Chromebooks for each student.

June 16, 2015

chromebookSHELBY — Shelby High School was one of five schools in Michigan selected to receive a technology grant that will provide a Google Chromebook computer to each high school student. “In addition to providing new devices to students one to one, the grant will also increase wireless capacity within the high school, replace and update projectors and other staff computers and provide professional development for teachers and students,” Superintendent Dan Bauer said. “This will transform the way that teachers facilitate learning opportunities for students and help build skills that will enable students to be competitive in the ever-changing job market.”

Bauer said staff will spend the summer preparing to implement the grant; 171 schools applied for the State Targeted Site Transformation grant. Shelby High School staff will be communicating with parents and students in July that will explain more about the Chromebook initiative.
