 MHS HAS 5 CHROMEBOOK GRANT WINNERS!

The Floyd County Board of Education approved another phase of Chromebook purchases to support more devices in classrooms. This year the system decided to purchase classroom sets of Chromebooks to distribute to teachers for permanent use. In order to distribute them equitably, teachers competed for them with a categorical grant application. The application process included a lesson plan focused on an engaging lesson developed around technology.  47 sets of Chromebooks were distributed across the county. We are proud to announce that five MHS teachers were each awarded a classroom set of 30 Chromebooks and a charging cart.
