GREENFIELD — Greenfield-Central administrators are taking a significant step forward in putting computers into the hands of students.
The school corporation received a $30,000 grant to write a plan for a so-called one-to-one computer program. But just how many computers would be purchased, what grade levels would receive them and how they would be used is up in the air.
“It’s literally $30,000 to find out where we’re at and write this plan,” said Christina Hilton, assistant superintendent at G-C.
Hilton announced the grant at Monday’s school board meeting, having just received word of approval from the Indiana Department of Education Friday. G-C was one of 10 schools to receive the Innovation Planning Grant, which is specifically designed to help districts with a population of 5,000 students or less decide how to get more technology into the hands of students.
