The Roanoke City Board of Education recognizes exceptional and available technology is important to teaching and learning in today's world. We are a one to one school system, which means every single one of our students is issued an electronic device in order to access the Internet, digital course materials, and digital textbooks. All of our classrooms are also equipped with touch display screens for instruction, document cameras, projectors, and additional desktops or laptops where applicable. Distance learning and video conferencing equipment is available on all campuses to allow students to participate in courses and field trips that would otherwise not be possible.
To emphasize our commitment to making technology readily available to our students, Roanoke City Board of Education created a road map to introducing new types of technologies into the classroom, and promoting STEM initiatives through our digital learning initiative.
