Thanks to a new technology grant in the amount of $65,000 from the Oklahoma Educational Technology Trust (OETT), all students in grades 1 through 12 will be receiving a Samsung Google Chromebooks for the 2013-2014 school year. Students will be able to use their Chromebooks at school and home. Teachers will also be issued new laptops.

We are excited to continue our PowerUp! one-to-one laptop program with this new opportunity.
