Today is the day! IHS students are the first to receive macbooks in the district's 1:1 initiative. 6th-8th grade students will receive theirs next week. 6th-12th grade students are being assigned a personal device, which they will be allowed to take home during the school year. "This is a gamechanger," one student excitedly announced. PK-5th grade students will also have improved access to technology for learning with classroom sets of Apple devices. It's a great day to be a Bulldog!
