Chromebook Professional Development

for WCS Middle School Teams

The Plan Moves Forward!

We will be moving forward with our plan to provide Chromebooks for your teams in the fall. Yes, that means YOUR team! There will be enough for each student to call their own, to use during the school day. These will not go home with students. Further details will follow soon, including when YOU will get a Chromebook to use. (if applicable) Please read on below for initial important information.


**Choose one of the two options below for kick-off professional development.
