The CV Board of Education voted unanimously to approve the Digital Learning Initiative (DLI) in support of 21st Century Learning. The district is proud to announce that starting next school year, the new one-to-one initiative will provide all incoming 9th graders (approximately 1,500 students) with a brand-new Chromebook for use in school and at home. The initiative has a four-year rollout plan so that by the 2020-21 school year, all CVUHSD students will have their own Chromebook. Over 1,600 DLI surveys were completed by teachers, students, parents, administrators and staff to ensure stakeholder input and the results were 90% showed positive support for the program. The voter-approved local parcel tax will fund the initiative, so there will be no impact on the general fund, and it will save the district money in the long-run by phasing out textbooks.
