Chromebook 1:1 Initiative

Imagine walking into a classroom where students are learning, responding and submitting class assignments all from a technology device.  Today’s technology allows students to learn in different ways; ways that will help them be better students. Camp Ernst Middle is excited to take the next step in preparing our students for their futures.


Today we deployed our 1:1 initiative with Chromebooks.  Every student at CEMS has been assigned a Chromebook they will keep for their time at the school. Chromebooks will stay at school and students will be attending all classes with them. Students will be responsible for the care and placement in carts for charging at the end of the school day. The Chromebook they receive will be the Chromebook they keep while at CEMS for as long as they attend CEMS.
