Technology Initiative

Wilmington City Schools is a GSuite district currently supporting over 3000 chrome devices district wide. 

Each elementary building is equipped with Chromebook carts that allow all students an opportunity to use a device. Denver Elementary has 15 carts, East End has 12 carts, Holmes has 6 carts, and every classroom has 5 chromebooks. Holmes k-1 students also have access to 20 android tablets. 

At Wilmington Middle School, WCS currently deploys twenty-four Chromebook carts which totals one cart per core classroom.  The ratio of students to Chromebooks is nearly 1:1.  

At Wilmington High School, the district is in its 4th year of a 1:1 Chromebook initiative.  This means that every individual student at Wilmington High School has a personal Chromebook for his/her educational needs.  Students have the opportunity to take the device home each night to extend their learning.  

Chromebooks enable students to learn at school or on-the-go. We call this Anytime/Anywhere learning.  The devices boot up in less than 8 seconds and have over 10 hours of battery life, making them ideal for schools.  

To support this large undertaking, Wilmington High School implemented a Chromebook Help Desk called the Cane Tech Squad. This organization is a student-run computer support program where students and teachers can get technology help throughout the school day.  Some of the services they provide are as follows: Chromebook Loaners, Chromebook Repair, Chromebook Secure Charging Station, Google Apps for Education support, Teacher Tech Support,  and Student Tech Project Support.
