COVENTRY— The school committee voted 4-0 last night to approve a distribution and professional development plan for teachers in order to provide them with training for the Chromebooks students will be receiving next school year.
For months, educators, parents and school officials have discussed a plan to integrate Chromebooks into the classroom over a three-year-time span.
Coventry Superintendent Michael Almeida said the district is moving into the initial stages of getting Chromebooks for the classrooms in Coventry and it’s a “huge undertaking.”
Part of the implementation plan is professional development, he said, and teachers will be given an opportunity to receive knowledge on the technology. The school committee approved three early-release days for the teachers—May 13 for the high school, May 20 for the middle school and May 30 for the elementary schools.
“Now we’ll be able to provide teachers with the support to kick-off the Chromebook implementation,” he added.
