BOOT CAMPS OFFER FUN WITH TABLETS

Hey kids. Don't forget about the boot camp at school next month. It could be fun.

The optional middle school tablet boot camps are part of the rollout of a $30 million Guilford County Schools technology initiative in middle schools to provide digital devices for nearly 17,000 students in the district’s 24 middle schools over the next two years. For the upcoming school year, all GCS middle schools except Allen Jay, Brown Summit, Eastern, Kiser, Lincoln and Southern will get tablets.

Students attending 18 schools will spend the day in different learning modules with their teachers, said Jake Henry, supervisor of the tablet program.
