Technology is taking over our world at a rapid pace. Kids need computers for just about every homework assignment and school project. In order to keep up, the Lake County School System is doing something quite extraordinary.
This upcoming school year, Lake County Schools has decided to begin giving every student a Google Chromebook for their school work over the next five years. They will be doing their homework and unfinished assignments on these laptops. And yes, specific websites and internet activities will be blocked for safety.
Students of Lake County will be able to bring their Google Chromebook to their own home and will be able to use it during school hours as well.
The first school that will be given the Chromebooks will be Tavares High School. Then, Lake County will work it's way up in the next five years to make sure every school has Chromebooks for all students from grades 3-12.
Each standard Chromebook retails for $230; however, students will only be required to pay a small fee of $32 in dues for the use of the Chromebook.
