Cable ONE Chromebook Donation Aids Charlie Marshall Elementary Students in Improving Reading Skills
September 18, 2018 – Aransas Pass, TX – Students at Charlie MarshallElementary School in Aransas Pass will be equipped with new Chromebooks this fall as the result of a Cable ONEinitiative designed to improve student access to technology in schools. Cable ONE will present the Chromebooks during a special event at the school on Friday, August 21 at 8 a.m.
Now in its fifth year, the Cable ONE Cares program provides Chromebooks to Title I schools in the markets it serves.
Cable ONE Senior Vice President of Technology Services Ken Johnson said that access to technology in schools is no longer a luxury, but a necessity, and that donating Chromebooks to Title I schools will help bridge the digital divide in schools that lack funding.
“While many school systems are taking big steps and working to give every student and every teacher access to the technology and tools they need to learn, not all schools have access to funding to support this effort,” Johnson said. “Because we believe so strongly in improving education through the use of technology, we want to do our part to support the communities we serve.”
Charlie Marshall Elementary School Principal Jeremy Saegert said that students will be using the Chromebooks to help improve reading skills.
“Technology is constantly changing and evolving,” Saegert. “Having the resources to put a device into each student’s hands will help them to develop skills that they will build upon in years to come.”
Cable ONE’s Aransas Pass General Manager Juli Blanda said that Cable ONE is committed to strengthening and improving the Aransas Pass community, not only through its products and services, but through support of the local community.
“Our Cable ONE associates are passionate about giving back to the community where they live and work,” Blanda said. “We know that improving access to technology in our schools will improve education and benefit our community for the long term.”
