Now that districts are back to in-person learning, they have a large amount of technology they’ll no longer be using from when teaching remotely was a requirement.
Many districts plan to still use the technology they needed to purchase for different reasons.
Superintendent Rob Price of the Onondaga Central School District says the school district spent $200,000 on different technology like cameras, microphones, and Chromebooks.
Before going remote there was enough technology on hand for one laptop per two students.
Liverpool Central School District received grant money to provide hotspots to students, but were considered a Google district beforehand. This means they have a partnership with Google who will replace their Chromebooks for students in grades 4-12 every three years.
Liverpool plans to still keep the hotspot technology for students that need it at home.
