Springfield schools scale back tech use, home access for some students

Students in an English class at Glendale High School take end-of-course exams Wednesday on Google Chromebooks. The district uses the devices for local and state testing.

Superintendent Grenita Lathan announced Tuesday that Springfield Public Educational facilities will get immediate steps to control the use of district-issued units amongst younger pupils as it launches a huge-scale evaluation of the function technology will enjoy in the teaching and discovering procedure.

The overview will study how devices are made use of for the duration of the university working day and further than, how effectively the district is ready to safeguard college students, and what purpose products engage in in instruction and educational achievement.

“We want our pupils to be exposed to technology but we do want to think about what that display screen time appears like, especially for our youngest learners but also checking what our middle and large university learners are undertaking,” she said.

Springfield, like many other significant districts, relied closely on engineering throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, primarily when learners had been studying remotely.
