Digital Conversion expanded to grades 2-12

In the 2018-2019 school year, Spencerport Scho
ol District has expanded its 1:1 laptop initiative to include students at grades 9-12. This initiative, now in grades 2-12, provides each student with a device of his/her own. This initiative allows teachers to thoughtfully integrate technology into the learning process while employing a blended model of instruction.

This shift is part of the district’s multi-year Digital Conversion, which has gradually increased the ratio of devices per student in an instructionally mindful and fiscally sustainable way. Professional development, technology support and instructional objectives have also been part of the Digital Conversion.
