Technology Integration and Data Management Coordinator Danielle McGee, second from right, helps Caleb Walker, second from left, use his new Chromebook in the Partnership Middle School cafeteria on Wednesday while his mother, Linda Halbert (right) and sister Skylin Triplett (left) watch and listen. The Starkville-Oktibbeha Consolidated School District used $600,000 of its own money and $1.6 million in federal funds allocated by the state to buy 4,200 Chromebooks for grades 2-12 and 500 laptops for teachers. Pre-K through first-grade students will use iPads the district already had on hand, so every student in the district will have a device. Caleb is learning remotely due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and Halbert said she appreciates having an extra device in case there are difficulties with the one Caleb usually uses for school.
