The Solon City Schools One2One program will provide students with Chromebooks to use at school and home. At the beginning of the 2016-17 School Year Grades 7-10 will be provided with Chromebooks. By the 2017-18 School Year both Solon High School and Solon Middle School will become completely One2One.
At the same time, the district will repurpose existing laptop and Chromebook carts to expand in-school technology access for students in grades K-6 and 11-12.
