CONSTANTINE TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) — One school district in southwest Michigan is looking to assign every student an electronic device for the entire school year.
It’s all thanks to a $1.5 million Robert and Ellen Thompson Foundation grant.
“It’s a ton of money,” said Constantine Public Schools Superintendent Steve Wilson.
So much money, in fact, each student will be “one-to-one” with technology, Wilson told 24 Hour News 8.
“Every single student will have a device,” he said. “We’re looking at tablets at kindergarten and Chromebooks from first grade all the way up through seniors.”
The Robert and Ellen Thompson Foundation only awarded two Michigan school districts the grant. Constantine, with fewer than fifteen hundred students, was one of them.
