All Covington Students Receive Digital Device

All Covington Students Receive Digital Device

All students in grades K-12 in Covington Independent Public Schools will soon have an I-pad or Chromebook to work on from home. The Covington Board of Education at its meeting on Thursday, November 19, approved the purchase of an additional 600 Chromebooks.

"With remote learning being a necessity now, the district is providing devices and making sure all grades have access to devices to complete their daily work," said Jamarcus White, Covington’s director of technology. "We’re addressing the needs of our students and families. We will soon be a one-to-one district."

Earlier this year, the district purchased 1,050 devices for students in grades 3-5. The latest purchase is for students in K-2. The district already provides devices to students at Holmes Middle and Holmes High Schools.

Superintendent Alvin L. Garrison said the purchase of devices for Covington students will help to reduce the digital achievement gap. Before, students used cellphones, shared devices or used public facilities to complete their assignments.

"Students will now be able to interact with their teachers and fellow students, research and complete assignments without leaving their homes,’’ Garrison said. “This is great for our students. The digital divide has always been there, but it became more prevalent during this COVID-19 pandemic."

As students receive their chromebooks, teachers are teaching them on the virtual learning systems being used by the school to make sure they can complete their work remotely.

White said the district also is working to provide additional hot spots to families who may not have internet access.
