This week in Depew:

•Come fall, the Depew School District will offer all students access to a mobile device through the school day.

The district calls the initiative one-to-one technology.

The district has applied for Smart Schools Bond Act funds to purchase iPads for grades kindergarten through second grade, and Chromebooks for third through 12th grades. These mobile devices will be available during the first semester of the 2016-17 school year.

Depew Middle and High School students will be able to take the device home to continue to use them for homework, research and access to online subscription-based resources.

This year, students were given access to Google Apps for Education and Schoology to support student and teacher communication, digital lessons and instructional resources.
