Fond du Lac High School Set to Finalize $1M Chromebook Deal

On April 18th, a committee of teachers, school administrators and selected community members will meet to finalize whether Fond du Lac High School will be supplying each student with a Google Chromebook computer for the 2012-13 school year.

Funding for the $1 million project, which is primarily the cost of approximately 2,400 Chromebooks, is already in place according to District School Superintendent Jim Sebert. Now the issue is how to complete the implementation and distribution.

Students have done their part by setting up and using Google accounts, emails, calendars, spreadsheets and other applications.

Two Google certified trainers were deployed to help the District with the 1-1 (one computer per student) computer initiative and training is underway to certify additional staff.

And as you might expect, Google and their Chromebook Team will be showcasing what’s happening at the school to share the experience with other schools across the country.
