Apple ConnectEd grant huge for Waco ISD
Posted on 08/27/2015

Elvis was "in the building" at Bell's Hill Elementary this week distributing new technology devices to all teachers.

Bell's Hill is a proud recipient of an Apple grant through the White House ConnectED initiative. By giving students access to the latest technology and powerful learning tools, Apple is working to transform the classroom into a place of deeper exploration and creativity to unlock the potential of the world’s future inventors, dreamers, and leaders.

Because of the generous grant, each Bell's Hill, Kendrick, Hines and Provident Heights teacher is receiving a MacBook Air. After the school year begins, each student at those schools will receive an iPad.

Infrastructure upgrades and professional development are included as part of the grant. This one-to-one initiative will greatly enhance student learning.
