Shad Hallihan and Alberto Filipponi from the Joliet Township High School District presented information at last week's meeting on a new program scheduled to pilot in the district in the fall of 2012. The program 1:1 will provide Netbook tablet computers to all incoming freshmen, on the first day of school at the Central campus and the second day of school at the West campus.


This program is part of the district five-year strategic plan to ensure all students and teachers are embracing technology in daily instruction. The program is being funded through federal grants and 2,000 netbook tablets are slated to be distributed this fall. This program will bring 21st century learning to 6,000 students and teachers in the JTHS district. For more information on this innovative plan, visit the website
