Pecos Elementary School in Roswell, NM; Belle Chasse Elementary in Belle Chasse, LA; Charlie Marshall Elementary School in Aransas Pass, TX; Clarkdale Jerome School in Clarkdale, AZ; and Masterson Elementary in Kennett, MO, are equipped with new Chromebooks this school year as the result of a Cable ONE initiative designed to improve student access to technology in Title I schools, the company said.
Cable ONE Senior Vice President of Technology Services Ken Johnson said that access to technology in schools is no longer a luxury, but a necessity, and that donating Chromebooks to Title 1 schools will help bridge the digital divide in schools that lack funding.
Over the past five years, Cable ONE has donated 900 Chromebooks to 18 schools in the markets it serves.
