The Chinook School Division is completing the two-year process to replace outdated computer hardware in schools with easier to use Chromebooks. Rob Geiger, the Chinook School Division’s manager of information systems, presented the technology status report at a regular meeting of the Chinook Board of Education, Jan. 8. The main focus of the school division’s current hardware refresh is the purchase of Chromebooks for use by students. “By the end of this school year, we should have renewed as much hardware as we’re going to renew in the immediate future,” he said after the meeting. “We’ll still be purchasing a few Chromebooks in the next couple of years, but for the most part the large bulk of it will be done.” Funding considerations and the need for professional development sessions with staff in schools made it necessary to stretch out the hardware refresh over the two-year period.
