Transformational Technology Proposal & Public Meetings

The Northfield Board of Education was presented with the district’s Transformational Technology proposal at it’s Jan. 28 meeting. The proposal includes a 1:1 tablet computer initiative for students in grades 6 through 12 and a “pod” based approach at the elementary schools, using a ratio of one device per 3.5 students. Read the proposal.

Two public meetings have been scheduled to review the proposal with the community:

  • Saturday, Feb. 2, from 10 a.m. to noon
  • Monday, Feb. 4, from 7 – 9 p.m.

Both meetings will be held in the Northfield High School Auditorium. The earliest the board could vote on the proposal is at its Feb. 11 meeting, which will begin at 7 p.m. at the Northfield High School Media Center.
