Computer rollout here for Henry County school district

Students in Henry County’s public schools are receiving their personal learning devices beginning this month with the rollout of the district’s 1:1 technology initiative known as EmpowerHCS.

The initiative was part of the E-SPLOST project list approved by voters in 2016. The Henry County Board of Education approved a $36 million expenditure for the devices and technical support as well as upgrades to network infrastructure and security.

Other planning steps involved partnering with Kennesaw State University to assist with such things as district-level training with various staff members, co-planning with grade level and content area coordinators, progress monitoring and reporting and digital citizenship support.
