One by one, Chromebooks are given out to K-12 pupils
Siblings Evan and Emily Obenauer came to the high school auditorium Aug. 15 with their mother, Paula, to pick up their assigned school computers — two of the 4,500 or so that will be given to Hillsborough students before school starts in September.
Deborah Ng and her son, Timothy, who is holding the Chromebook box, came to the high school on Aug. 15 along with other parents and their children to pick up students’ assigned school computers.
The computers will be an essential part of the learning process as Hillsborough becomes one of the most wired school districts in the state. Every student in grades five through 12 will have a computer given to them, and younger students will have enough for each to have one to use in school buildings.
