Jan. 6, 2021—All 12 CFISD high schools have received Chromebooks for students as part of the district’s LTE (Learning Together Everywhere) 1:1 program. Rollouts began before the Thanksgiving holiday and were completed before winter break.
More than 75,000 CFISD students have received a Chromebook, which includes 100% of high school students having their own device. In addition, 52% of elementary students and 46% of middle school students have received their individually issued Chromebook. CFISD has met all requests of CFISD Connect students who indicated a need for a device in order to be successful while learning remotely.
“Successfully deploying individually issued Chromebooks to all high school students in CFISD is an incredible feat that could not be accomplished without the support of the community and the CFISD Board of Trustees,” said Katie Gentry, director of 1:1 and inventory systems. “These devices will enable teachers to transform learning anytime, anywhere, allowing students to reach their full potential for college and career readiness. The spirit of CFISD was evident in this project as many departments stepped up and heeded the call to think outside the box to make this happen in an expedient manner for our high school students across the district.”

In a special-called meeting on July 7, the CFISD Board of Trustees unanimously voted in favor of authorizing the superintendent to approve the purchase of portable electronic devices, LTE internet access and other items needed to support a one-to-one solution for CFISD students. The LTE 1:1 program provides every student with an electronic device to support quality instruction and resources. The program allows CFISD to meet the needs of all students by providing appropriate teacher-directed instruction, including real-time live virtual instruction.
