We, as a district, are proud and excited about the FTPS 1:1 Chromebook initiative and its impact on student learning. We believe the opportunity for each FMS student to have their own device will result in an overall enhanced educational experience, better student organizational skills, personalized learning, and expansion of learning and sharing beyond the walls of FHS, FMS@HSC, and FMS@SGS campuses.
We look forward to continuing to harness the potential that this technology can provide to our students and our instructional program.
