Google Apps for Education @Lyons 103

The 2013-2014 school year saw the introduction of Chromebooks to our middle school.  This marks the beginning of our transition from a strictly PC-based, locally controlled environment to a more platform agnostic, cloud-based system for managing and storing student work, increasing communication and collaboration, and addressing the need for greater access to devices for daily use and occasional local and state assessments.

In 2014-2015 we are adding more Chromebooks to the middle school and expanding their availability to all of our elementary schools as well.
