Students in Green Bay schools will soon get a technology boost.
The Green Bay School District plans to spend nearly $2.5 million on 5,000 Chromebook computers for students in sixth, seventh, ninth and 10th grades to use in math and language arts classes. It will also replace older equipment in some elementary schools.
The purchase continues the Green Bay district’s Access to Technology initiative, according to Diane Doersch, chief technology and information officer for the district. In 2012, the district bought about 900 netbooks for sixth- and ninth-grade math and language arts students.
