The 9,000-student Council Bluffs Community Schools in Iowa was one of the first K12 districts in the country to use Chromebooks and Google Apps for Education in a 1-to-1 implementation, beginning in 2011. Council Bluffs has successfully implemented a 1-to-1 initiative for all students in grades 6-12, with plans to expand to grades 3-5 this year, and is also currently piloting tablets in elementary schools. The district has seen improved student achievement, rising graduation rates and decreasing dropout rates, with some of the most significant improvement in the state.
