One-to-One Initiative

In the 2018-2019 school year, all students in grades 6-12 will be issued a Chromebook to use in the classroom and take home for assignments. A Chromebook is an Internet-enabled device that utilizes the Chrome browser for web surfing, school email, and productivity/creativity software. CHPS has piloted Chromebooks in our schools for three years and they have become very popular among both teachers and students.
