Salem City Schools 1:1 Initiative
Salem Schools has adopted a 1:1 Chromebook Initiative for all students grades 5-12. The goal is to strengthen students' 21st century skills and present them with a transformational learning experience that provides around-the-clock access to learning, with virtually unlimited information sources. Teachers will have more opportunities to deliver instruction using a variety of methods to better meet the different learning needs of all students, actively engaging them in learning.
Beginning with the 2017-18 school year, every student enrolled at the junior and senior high schools will receive a Chromebook computer for school and home use. Southeast students (grades 5 and 6) will be assigned a personal Chromebook to be used in school.
Junior and Senior High Students and Parents Only
