White Pigeon Community Schools Board of Education last week approved a quote for 432 classroom Chromebook devices, at a cost of about $126,000.
Money for the purchase will come from bond funds.
Associate superintendent Carrie Erlandson said the Chromebooks will be especially useful if the district needs to continue distance learning in the fall.
The district already has 150 Chromebooks at the middle school/high school building, and 210 at Central Elementary. The district hopes to collect iPads for use by students in grades K-2.
In an unrelated matter, board president Dan Cropsey said Erlandson and superintendent Jon Keyer both rated as “highly effective” during this year’s evaluation process.
