Consolidated School District 158 in Algonquin, Illinois, has accepted
the honor of being an international launch site based on the excellence
and commitment it has demonstrated for its technology enriched 1:1
program. District 158 has successfully implemented more than 5,000
devices throughout various grade levels including elementary, middle
school and high school.
Marisa Burkhart, Director of Educational Technology and recent recipient
of the Illinois Computing Educators "Educator of the Year" award for her
work overseeing the 1:1 program in D158, stated, "We are fortunate to
have great support for this initiative from our D158 community. From the
leadership team, to our teachers, parents, and students - we all
understand and support the mission of providing our students with a
classroom rich in technology resources, opportunities to collaborate and
think creatively, and be challenged at a high level. Regardless of the
technology, 1:1 rollouts can be chalenging, but it is extremely
rewarding to experience the excitement and opportunity that comes with
this change in teaching and learning."
Chris Budzynski, IT Director, added, "We are now embarking on a new,
varied interactive approach that involves technology from CurriculumLoft
and HP. Our district is heavily leveraging both Android and Chrome-based
hardware at various grade levels, to offer age-appropriate tools."
Dr. John Burkey, Superintendent for District 158, who has provided key
foresight, planning, and vision, was quoted as saying, "Our district is
excited about the opportunity to be named an international launch site.
We learn so much by collaborating with others, so we are thrilled to
welcome other districts into our schools to talk to our staff and
