St. Maria Goretti High School announced today that the school will implement a 1:1 Chromebook program for all students beginning in the 2017-18 school year. This project was made possible through a $65,000 grant from the Marion I. & Henry J. Knott Foundation that was awarded to the school in February. The Chromebook program will allow the school to leverage cloud-based learning tools to increase student achievement, improve instructional efficiencies, and further facilitate communications between parents, teachers, and students.
Kelly Medinger, the Executive Director of the Knott Foundation, expressed the organization’s enthusiasm for the school’s ability to offer new cross-curricular opportunities for technology with the implementation of this program.
“We are pleased to support St. Maria Goretti’s 1:1 Chromebook program. This investment, combined with the academic rigor and character development that the school already offers, will expand students’ access to and use of technology for lifelong learning.”
The Knott Foundation is a Catholic family foundation that began in Baltimore in 1977. Mr. and Mrs. Knott began their philanthropic mission as a way to combine two passions—family and their surrounding community—and the Foundation continues that legacy today.
