Floyd County School officials are looking to follow suit of Rome City Schools. Executive Director of Technical and Media Services, Craig Ellison, said that he hopes of giving every student a Chromebook computer. Ellison said that the plan is for every student to have one within the next five years.
He estimated that the cost for the system would be around $250,000. Ellison said that the system currently has close to 2,000 Chromebooks in the system. Several of the schools have held fundraisers in order to purchase them.
Currently, every freshman at Rome High School has the Chromebooks in which they are able to take home and submit class work online.
