Mayor Martin J. Walsh celebrates the initial delivery of Chromebooks with Mildred students and staff.
BOSTON (March 21, 2014) -- Ten thousand Chromebooks are arriving for students in the Boston Public Schools this spring. Mayor Martin J. Walsh and Interim Superintendent John McDonough announced the program at the Mildred Avenue K-8 School, where some students became familiar with the low-cost laptops that allow easy access to the internet and Google applications.
“This is the kind of investment that will pay long-term dividends,” said Mayor Walsh. “By providing low-cost computers to our students from elementary to high school, we are preparing them for the future. Watching students this morning at the Mildred, I witnessed the learning potential these laptops hold."
